Arni Jacobson – Chair

Jacobson is the ultimate builder of faith-based organizations, Arni Jacobson as the first Chair of the Board of Directors. 

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”) since becoming Pastor of a couple of hundred attendees of then-Bayside Christian Fellowship. The incredible growth of the Church led other pastors around the country to ask Jacobson to guide their growth – resulting in many churches growing to thousands of attendees each Sunday

Jacobson is a successful Pastor, Church planter, 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.
