Nearly 1,000 members of the congregation reportedly voted unanimously to approve shifting title of the $20-million Crystal Cathedral to Robert Schuller Ministries, which produces the "Hour of Power" television broadcasts, after the Garden Grove evangelist told them that the move was primarily to enhance financial support. Schuller said that under rules of the Reform Church of America, the denomination with which the Crystal Cathedral is affiliated, only members of the local congregation can serve on the governing board. He noted that most of the financial support to build the structure came from viewers of the television show elsewhere and that those viewers had been effectively barred from the board.
