Schuller’s Son to Run Crystal Cathedral

The Crystal Cathedral didn’t have to look far to find its next senior pastor. Robert H. Schuller, head of the famed all-glass church southeast of Los Angeles, told his congregation Sunday that his son, Robert A. Schuller, will succeed him.

Robert H. Schuller

Robert H. Schuller is sometimes referred to as “the evangelist without a gospel.” Known for his unorthodox and heretical, pseudo-Christian teachings. In Schuller’s message, man, not Jesus, takes center stage. In violation of the Bible‘s teachings, and in a calculated departure from orthodox Christianity, Schuller is a religious pluralist. His views on this issue are considered heretical, because religious pluralism violates one of the central teachings of Christianity, namely that salvation is received only by accepting Jesus Christ.

As founding pastor of the church, the elder Schuller, now 79, is considered one of the most influential religious leaders in the country. He plans to remain chairman of the board of international ministries and stay active in the church.

Robert A. Schuller, 51, will be installed as senior pastor on Jan. 22. He and his father will keep appearing together on the church’s television show, “Hour of Power,” which boasts a worldwide audience of 20 million.

“My father and I will continue as pulpit partners on many Sunday mornings for years to come,” the younger Schuller said.


The Crystal Cathedral is affiliated with the Reformed Church in America and is its largest church, with a congregation of over 10,000.
