GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) — The grandson of televangelist Robert H. Schuller will follow in his grandfather's footsteps with an hour-long religious TV program called "Hour of Power with Bobby Schuller."

The reformatted program will be similar to the "Hour of Power" televangelist show made famous by his grandfather. The first installment will air Sunday.

The younger Schuller has also been named lead pastor of Shepherd's Grove church, which will continue his grandfather's vision.

The glass-paned Crystal Cathedral that the elder Schuller founded in California was sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange in 2010 after Crystal Cathedral Ministries declared bankruptcy.

The elder Schuller resigned from the church board in 2012.

The revised TV program will air on TBN, The Church Channel and Oxygen and locally in Tampa, Phoenix, Grand Rapids and Los Angeles.
