About Canyon Hills

Pastor Larry, his wife, Shirley, and their three young children, started Canyon Hills Friends Church in East Yorba Linda on June 3, 1990. The church first met in a leased facility on La Palma Avenue for 15 years. In 2003, Canyon Hills purchased the property on Fairmont Connector and built an 18,000 square facility. On April 3, 2005, Canyon Hills had its first service in its new and current facility.

Since its beginning, Canyon Hills has reached beyond the city of Yorba Linda by starting new churches. Canyon Hills has started five other churches. The first was in Corona, California; the second in the Philippines; the third in Norco, California; the fourth in Juárez, Mexico; and the fifth in Clovis, California.

Today, Canyon Hills is still a church family dedicated to following the model of Jesus Christ and sharing His message of love and grace both locally and globally.
