Jim and Denise Arnold joined IGM in 1990. Jim was born in Ivory Coast, West Africa, and the Arnolds were missionaries there when they joined IGM. The family was evacuated from Ivory Coast during the coup in 2002. After relocating to the US, Jim became the Missionary Field Coordinator for all of IGM’s national church planters in the West African region. In March, 2013, Jim became the Director of Focused Ministries, working with all of our United States ministries, including the oversight of Faith Ministries International Orphan Ministry (FMI). He will still be available for counsel for our West African partners. The family currently resides in Georgia.
