About the location

COL Chester “Chet” and Michelle Arnold, USMC (Ret.), recently celebrated 31 years of marriage and now live in Pensacola with three of their seven children. They’ve been active in OCF for over 20 years and after leaving active duty would occasionally discuss and pray over how to better serve the military community for Christ. At OCF’s White Sulphur Springs conference center in July 2013 they got their answer when during a ministry briefing they were made aware of the OCF Pensacola position. Now to serve!

Pensacola OCF News

Highlights from November and October

As part of the regional focus here in Pensacola Michelle, Evan, Drew and I travelled to Jacksonville to visit OCF JAX. We also were able to meet with some other OCF friends we know from Pensacola who recently received their wings and are currently in the FRS at JAX.

Highlights from September

A couple times a year, once in the spring and fall, we call together the OCF local leaders in the Pensacola area for fellowship, food and an update on OCF happenings. This time we had leaders from Niceville, Valparaiso, Navarre, Pace and Pensacola FL.

Highlights from August

The “wetting down” tradition runs deep in the culture of the Naval Services. Usually it is connected to a promotion, but has been commandeered in Naval Aviation as an excuse to throw your friends in the water for almost any reason.

Kingdom work can happen anywhere

As a relational ministry where genuine biblical fellowship is essential for spiritual growth and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, the very heart of the ministry of Officers’ Christian Fellowship remains small group fellowships.
