I believe with every fiber of my being that God turned the eyes of the world on Crystal Cathedral because God wants to make a big bold statement, he wants the world to know that he is a God who still does miracles — Reuters
Philip Johnson's masterpiece, the Crystal Cathedral is the subject of bidding wars between Chapman University, Roman Catholic Archdiocese and the retailer Hobby Lobby. Sheila Schuller Coleman, director of ministry at the church and the daughter of Schuller also thinks they can raise the money and keep the church if they can raise $50 million. The Garden Grove campus also includes buildings by Richard Neutra and Richard Meier.
The Crystal Cathedral was parodied in the Simpsons episode "Natural Born Kissers" (towards the end)
