Cheryl married Brian Brodersen in 1980, and for many years, they ministered together at Calvary Chapel Vista, California. In 1996, the Brodersen family moved to London and planted Calvary Chapel Westminster. In 2000, at the request of Cheryl’s father, Pastor Chuck Smith, Brian and Cheryl returned from the UK to California to have Brian transition into the pastorate of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. Brian became the senior pastor of the church in October of 2013.

It is her joy and privilege to minister biblical truths to women of all ages.
