Crystal Cathedral: Schullers Go to Court

Founder, wife seek $5 million in church’s bankruptcy case; vendors still in limbo.

The Rev. Robert H. Schuller has been a spiritual counselor to this country's leaders, a friend to celebrities, an inspiring figure to the common person.

He started a church with an investment of $500 and turned it into a worldwide institution: the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove. His sermons were viewed by millions on his "Hour of Power" television show. Now, after decades of service and leadership, he finds himself in court fighting the very church he created.

Schuller and his wife, Arvella, seek more than $5 million. Meanwhile, the outcome of the trial will affect creditors who have been waiting to be paid since the Crystal Cathedral Ministries filed for bankruptcy in 2010.
