Mike and Cindy Hoverson are Lead Pastors of Canvas Church. They have been called to plant a "Life-giving" church in Upland, California. God has blessed them to be able to be in ministry for 23 years. In those years, Mike and Cindy have served in youth ministry, led missions trips, and organized outreach events for the community. Mike loves all aspects of football and enjoys being a volunteer varsity football coach at a local Christian high school. Cindy has a vision for beautifying simple events and making them extravagant. She also enjoys running, specifically running marathons (both half and full), she has run 5 and plans on running more. Canvas Church is starting because of the passion Mike and Cindy have for seeing people in a relationship with Jesus and in community with one another. Mike and Cindy are excited to meet YOU!

We truly have a heart for others whether in Upland, California or across the world. We love the community.
