Crystal Cathedral board sells property to local University

   GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) - Southern California's Crystal
Cathedral has endorsed selling its sprawling campus to a university
as part of a bankruptcy reorganization plan.
     The church says in a statement that its board of directors backs
Chapman University's offer to buy the property if the church is
unable to raise enough money to avoid a sale. Under the plan, the
church would be able to continue to use a number of buildings on
the Garden Grove campus and possibly repurchase them at a later
     Crystal Cathedral founder Dr. Robert Schuller praised Chapman
University in the statement, saying it's compatible with the church
in many ways, but added that the church looks forward to a new
dream of "buying the core campus back."
     A federal bankruptcy judge still must rule on the reorganization
plan. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Nov. 14.
