Schullers resign from board of Crystal CathedralDr. Robert Schuller, wife resign from board of Orange County's Crystal Cathedral Ministries
GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) ' Dr. Robert Schuller and his wife Arvella have resigned from the board of directors of the Crystal Cathedral, the ministry he founded four decades ago.
Their daughter, Carol Schuller Milner, said Saturday the couple was stepping down over an inability to agree on a deal for housing benefits and fees for using the pastor's intellectual property, such as writings and sermons.
Arvella Schuller said negotiations had become "adversarial and negative."
A Crystal Cathedral representative could not be immediately reached for comment.
Robert Schuller retired from the ministries in 2006. Last month, the sale of the financially ailing church to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange was finalized in a $57.5 million bankruptcy deal.
The church was internationally known for its "Hour of Power" televangelist program and its glass-paned building.
