ALL ACCESS is saddened to report that PASTOR CHUCK SMITH, founder of CALVARY CHAPEL and MARANATHA! MUSIC, has died following a battle with lung cancer.
PASTOR SMITH lived to be 86 years old, and was responsible for mentoring some of the earliest JESUS MUSIC artists & bands of the late 60's & early 70's, as highlighted by CHRISTIANITY TODAY and a host of online blogs.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, staff and friends during this time.
