Stan Percival,  
Lead Pastor

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.
