Christian and Elisabeth Arnold live and work with youth in Northern Ireland and teach them not only how to be future leaders but also how to be active participants in their church and their communities right now. They have lived and served in Derry/Londonderry since 2022.
Christian Arnold has a heart for connecting God's people with His Word. He supports local churches by preaching and serves the local university campus as a chaplain. Christian spends much of his time partnering with and encouraging youth workers in the city and the northwest of the island.
Elisabeth Arnold has a passion for empowering youth to make a difference for God's Kingdom. She spends most of her time in teaching roles - leading Bible studies in the local church and serving schools by leading Bible-based assemblies and religious education support.
Chris & Elisabeth have been married since 2017 and enjoy exploring their community with their kids, Caspian & Clementine.
Their journey to the field began with a vision trip to Ireland in the Spring of 2019 and a planning trip to Donegal at the beginning of 2020, and they worked with YouthHOPE from 2019-2021 before moving to Northern Ireland. They are both alumni of Johnson University and appreciate their home churches of Englewood Christian Church and Kissimmee Christian.
