Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel Battling Lung Cancer


The congregation of Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, Calif., was left stunned on the first Sunday service of the new year when Senior Pastor Chuck Smith announced that he has been battling lung cancer.

Following Sunday’s service at the church, Smith’s son-in-law, Brian Brodersen, and other pastors joined together to anoint Smith with oil and offer prayers for his healing. Pastor Smith is 84 years old and has never smoked, Assist News Service reported. Smith faces a biopsy on Tuesday and surgery the following week. Calvary Chapel confirmed the news on its Facebook page over the weekend, writing:

“Please pray for Pastor Chuck Smith, Sr.! Today it was announced cancer has been found in his lung; there is uncertainty as to the extent. We are expecting to know more regarding prognosis and treatment after Tuesday. Please pass on this request of prayer for him, Kay, and the rest of the family.”

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
