Remembering Chuck Smith

 SANTA ANA, Calif. – Calvary Chapel founder Pastor Chuck Smith, considered one of the major catalysts of the Jesus Movement of the '60s and '70s, died after a battle with lung cancer at the age of 86 on Thursday.

Smith had been undergoing treatments for cancer off and on for almost two years, but had maintained a full schedule of preaching both from the pulpit at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa and on a radio talk show heard nationwide.

On a Facebook page with more than 11,000 followers dedicated to praying for Smith while he was ill, Manderson added, "Thank you for your faithful prayers all these months."
