Our Team

FullSizeRender 2Cindy Powell is the President and Executive Director of The Arising Global, which includes overseeing our Redlands Prayer Furnace, and serving as Editor for Voices of Justice Magazine.  In addition to leading various prayer ministries and prayer teams, both locally and globally, for over 20 years, Cindy spent over 15 years in leadership roles with several large nonprofits. She is also the author of several books. Much of her life and  gifting boils down to words—writing them, speaking them, and praying them—so her desire is  that her words will bring a greater revelation of Jesus.

Aeron headshot bAeron Brown is our Creative Director and the Resident Artist for Upstairs Arts.  Aeron was born and raised in the Inland Empire of Southern California. Aeron captures light and beauty with a modern Indie Style of acrylic paintings and has become a well established local artist whose vibrant, colorful, creations have been shared all over the world. He conducts both online and in person art classes.  As Aeron says: “What interests me most about visual art is the story that unfolds during the creative process. Art is connected to the stories and lives of people transpiring in the world around us. I try to show this in my visual work attempting to depict the tangled web of emotions, stories, and experiences that we all share. This happens in the studio, yes, but I also try to share this experience by bringing the creation of art into public places.”
