WI Faith & Freedom Coalition Elects Arni Jacobson Chair

As many Wisconsinites try to make it to church or other places after a blizzard hit this weekend, and the Green Bay Packers prepare for a playoff game at 3:30 pm CT today, Wisconsin Faith & Freedom (https://wisconsinffc.com/) enthusiastically announces the election of the Packers former Chaplain, Arni Jacobson as their first Board Chair.

Jacobson the ultimate builder of faith-based organizations, Arni Jacobson as the first Chair of the Board of Directors. As noted on its website the organization was founded this month as a 501c3 non-profit to encourage Wisconsinites of faith to participate by voting and discussing policies facing the state.

The following is the bio that will appear on https://wisconsinffc.com/, followed by information on the new organization:

The Wisconsin Faith & Freedom Coalition is thrilled to be led by Chairman Arni Jacobson, the former Chaplain of the Green Bay Packers who built the largest church in Wisconsin outside of the Milwaukee Metro area (see “Celebration Church” at http://hirr.hartsem.edu/megachurch/database.html) since becoming Pastor of a couple of hundred attendees of then-Bayside Christian Fellowship. The incredible growth of the Church led to other pastors around the country to ask Jacobson to guide their growth – resulting in many churches growing to thousands of attendees each Sunday. https://celebrationchurch.tv/

Jacobson is a successful Pastor, Church planter, and mentor and has authored books including, The Favor Factor: Living Life with God’s Advantage, 5 Keys to Reaching Your Family for Christ, and The High Cost or Resentment (the Journey to Freedom).

Jacobson is an Executive Board Member and the Director and Leadership and Church Expansion for Grace International in Houston. He is a national and international Church and business speaker. He is the co-founder of City Church in Salt Lake City. He served for many years on the Board of Church Growth International with Dr. David Yonegi Cho, Pastor of The Full Gospel Church in Seoul, Korea. His number one passion is to see lost people come to Christ and is known as a great soul-winner. More than anything, he loves his wife, children, and grandchildren and is a proud family man.

In addition to the bio above, the following is additional information on the Wisconsin Faith and Freedom Coalition:

The other two founding Board Members, the Founder of Nicolet Bank (Bob Atwell) and former Latina journalist and the head of the Central Wisconsin Region and Minority outreach for Wisconsin US Senator Ron Johnson (Camille Solberg) elected Jacobson as Chair. They met to discuss outreach efforts to pastors and other leaders of faith-based communities, as well as the distribution of non-partisan candidate educational literature along the lines of those distributed to 9 million Americans by the National Faith & Freedom Coalition (https://www.ffcoalition.com/leadership/).

That national effort grew out of a national faith-based effort in 2000 run by the group’s new President John Pudner under the direction of FFC Founder & Chairman Ralph Reed that reached 8 million Evangelical and Pentecostal Christians as well as 6 million church-attending Catholics at a time before digital advertising and data collection was possible. We look forward to combining modern means of communication with the same passion that drove that effort to reach as many Wisconsinites of faith, as well as others who share many values we believe make Wisconsin a wonderful place to live and work.
