Hi, I'm Stan Percival. My wife, Janet, and I moved to Cumming in September, 2008. We have two daughters, Amy and Amber, who are out of the house but find their way back quite often.
Janet and I began our ministry in 1982 and had the privilege of starting a church as church planters in Naples, Florida, and relocating a church that had been in existence for 50 years in St. Petersburg, Florida, to another area in the city.
When I graduated from Lincoln Christian College, I prayed that God would use me in whatever way He saw fit. I have only one life on this earth, and I want to use it all for Him. I hope that you will come and visit us at Canvas. This church has a great deal to offer, and I am thankful to be a part of it. Follow me @Theotherstanley

Hi! My name is Devin Bitner and I am so excited to be the youth pastor at Canvas Christian Church! Originally from Rockford, Illinois, I attended Saint Louis Christian College and graduated in 2015 with my Bachelors in Science of Student Ministry and Bible and shortly after I did a full year internship with a youth ministry in my home town. I’ve been working with youth for 6 years and it is my absolute passion to see students step into the identity and freedom that God has for them! Looking forward to meeting you!

Hi, my name is Karen Reeves and I'm excited about becoming part of the Canvas family in a new and bigger role as Nursery Director.

My ultimate goal is to help every child feel a welcoming love and to be involved with parents growing children God's way.
My name is Mike Chaet. I received my education in Fort Collins, Colorado then moved to the Georgia area. I have a wonderful family that I spend most of my time with when I am not working as a musician. My professional background includes fifteen years of experience in audio engineering and I own a sound company in the North Georgia mountains. My passion for audio production and my faith have contributed to my position as Technical Director at Canvas Christian Church.
Hi, I’m Wayne Caton and I have been blessed to be married to my high school sweetheart, Sandy, for 49 years. God has also blessed us with 2 children and 4 grandchildren. I spent most of my career in the telecommunications industry after graduating from college, in various management positions, including finance earlier in my career.
I have served as an elder, finance elder prime, and am involved with Canvas Care + and the First Impression Ministries. I believe that God moved me to consider this part time position as business administrator. Sandy and I feel extremely privileged and blessed to be part of Canvas. It’s our goal to share our Christian Love with everyone that comes through God’s doors. Can’t wait to meet you.
