Sheila Schuller Coleman

Sheila Schuller Coleman, It was Senior Pastor Sheila Schuller Coleman’s last Sunday at the Crystal Cathedral’s Garden Grove building in Orange County, Calif., as she announced that she is starting a new church.
Hope Center of Christ will be the name of the church. Coleman, a daughter of Crystal Cathedral founder Dr. Robert H. Schuller, expects to find a location for her breakaway church this week.

She said in a video message posted on the church’s new website that they would announce where the new church will meet for worship in the next few days. It would not be more than five or 10 minutes from the old building, she added.

Soon after her announcement, a Crystal Cathedral pastor told congregants that regular Sunday services will continue in the famed glass building and members were free to decide where they would like to be next Sunday morning, according to The Orange County Register. “We are very sad, very sorry about this,” Pastor Emeritus Juan Carlos Ortiz, who began the Hispanic ministry for the Crystal Cathedral, was quoted as saying. “I hope they both have success – those who stay and those who leave.”

The split comes a day after the founder and his wife, Arvella Schuller, announced their resignation from the board of the megachurch, saying they had lost hope of settling disputes with directors over copyright infringement and payment for services in a positive atmosphere.
