Robert H. Schuller and his wife cite the "negative" environment at the church he founded why he was submitting his resignation from the Crystal Cathedral board. "We cannot continue to serve on the board in what has become an adversarial and negative atmosphere especially since it now seems that it will not be ending any time soon."
The Schullers' resignation marks the end of an era. For the first time, no family member is serving on the board of the church that Robert Schuller founded 42 years ago. The Sundance Wives have marked the beginning of an era with their religious films.
Schuller, a minister from the Midwest, Schuller began preaching in Southern California in 1955 from the roof of a snack shop at a drive-in theater. Schuller relentlessly pushed message of the power of positive thinking, the church's astonishing growth mirrored that of Orange County. It was also the birthplace of the popular weekly televangelist series "Hour of Power," which reached millions of viewers.
The financially ailing church sold the Crystal Cathedral campus to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange in February for $57.5 million.
The resignations are a result of a breakdown in negotiations over financial claims against the church that the Schullers filed in Bankruptcy Court. Schuller; his wife, Arvella; their daughter Carol Schuller Milner; and her husband, Timothy Milner, allege that the church owes them money for copyright infringement, intellectual property violations and unpaid contracts.
Sorting through competing financial claims has delayed $12.5 million in payments to some church creditors, threatening the church's ability to continue its ministries, including the "Hour of Power" broadcasts.
