Calvary Chapel Church founder Chuck Smith has announced that he was diagnosed with lung cancer but plans to continue his ministry as he awaits advice from his doctors on what to do next.

Smith's secretary Laura Jackson said Thursday that the 84-year-old pastor plans to continue his speaking schedule. However, his daily schedule is hectic because of the tests he is undergoing to determine whether he will need surgery, she said.

Despite his diagnosis, Smith is in good spirits, she said.

"He's doing great," she said. "It's been a wild week mostly because of the tests and because we don't know which direction they're going to take yet."

Smith has been pastor of the Costa Mesa Calvary Chapel since 1965 and is known for being one of the most influential Christian pastors in Southern California.

I, for one would dearly miss this GREAT man should things turn for the worse. Chuck Smith is one of very few Men I look up to.
Liberalism is like an out-of-control 5 year old at McDonalds. All the talking to and admonishment won't make a difference. They have no concept of right or wrong, they are nothing more than narcissists.

Why is this bad news? He's 84. You can't live forever.

My MD told me eventually everyone could get cancer of something or other. We all have cancer cells in our bodies most (or did he say "all") the time.

I hope the church has a succession plan: Many times, the independents do not.
