Brian Brodersen Officially Takes Senior Pastor Role at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa; Position Held by Chuck Smith

November 15, 2013

Brian Brodersen, who served as a senior pastor within Calvary Chapel's fellowship of churches in Vista, Calif., and in Westminster, London, England, was officially appointed as the successor to Pastor Chuck Smith at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, by an affirming vote from the congregation on Wednesday.

Brodersen replaces Smith, who was a major influence in both the Jesus movement of the late '60s and early '70s and the exponential growth nationally and internationally of Calvary Chapel's network of churches, and who died after a battle with lung cancer on Oct. 3 at the age of 86.
