China is the latest frontier for the Rev. Robert H. Schuller's "Hour of Power" ministry. Schuller, 74, just returned from a three-week visit there and plans to go back in October, spokesman Mike Nason said. The minister plans to launch a Chinese-language Web site and promote his books more in China. "He's known there more as an author than a minister," Nason said. During the October trip, Schuller will speak in Shanghai and Beijing.

Officials of the powerful Schuller Ministries claim that repair work along the storm-ravaged Oso Creek threatens to devastate the church's picturesque Rancho Capistrano, especially if more rain arrives soon. Victor Andrews, a spokesman for Schuller Ministries, which also owns Garden Grove's Crystal Cathedral, said the project has actually worsened the creek's severe erosion problems and helped wash out about 10 acres at the religious retreat during the recent storm.

On a recent Sunday morning at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, the Rev. Robert H. Schuller was standing beside a 20-foot image of himself on a giant Sony video screen, looking out over the throng of worshipers. For a moment, his trademark megawatt smile slipped. "PTL's declared bankruptcy and what happens?" he asked. "The phones ring off the wall here. And every television newscaster and reporter wants a statement from Robert Schuller.

A dispute over rights to Christmas and Easter pageants at the Rev. Robert H. Schuller's Crystal Cathedral has moved to court, where former directors of the shows have sued to halt them. Michael Coleman and Conwell Worthington, who were in charge of the pageants in 1983-85, also asked for $55 million in damages in their federal lawsuit. They were fired without cause in 1986 and replaced by Schuller's son-in-law, they alleged.

The Rev. Robert H. Schuller provided more details about cutbacks in his popular TV ministry Wednesday and elaborated on decisions that give him complete personal control of his 10,000-member Crystal Cathedral congregation of Garden Grove. And about one-fourth of an $8-million drop in projected income for 1988 was attributed to reduced donations from members of Schuller's "Eagles' Club," those who give at least $500 annually, ministry officials said Wednesday.
