Char Brodersen

Senior Pastor

Brian Charles Brodersen (Char) is the Co-Senior Pastor at CCCM. Char pastored Refuge Christian Fellowship in Northern California for 13 years before moving back to Southern California in 2021 to join the leadership team of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. He and his wife Grace have been married for 16 years and have three children: Judah, Hudson, and Evelyn.

Char is very passionate and convicted about lifelong learning and has just completed the MABL program through Western Seminary. He has a deep passion to see the church live out the life of Jesus and to put the kingdom of God on display. His other passions and interests include time with family, traveling, and exploring the wonders of God's beautiful creation, deep friendships, reading (all sorts), music (both playing and listening), film, and just about anything else you can think of. Char has a deep conviction that this is God's world, filled with his power and presence, and is seeking to live in that reality day by day.
