Southeast Coastal Region
Col Chet & Michelle Arnold, Jr., USMC (Ret.)

My wife, Michelle, and I met the day after my commissioning as a 2ndLt in the Marines. Six months later we were married. In November 2008 we transitioned to civilian life with three biological children, four adopted children, and numerous foster children gracing our home. In July 2014 we reported for duty in full-time service with OCF at Pensacola. Our years of experience in the Marines and Naval Aviation is put to good use here as we serve Christ teaching and mentoring the young officers attending Naval Flight training.

Leavenworth
LTC Jim & Christina Harbridge, USA (Ret.)

We first encountered Officers’ Christian Fellowship while Jim was a CGSC Student in 2012. Our time in Leavenworth was extremely impactful. We became deeply connected to the Post Chapel community (Christina was baptized here) and the OCF ministry. Discipleship Training Breakfast and the connections made leading our neighborhood bible study were transformational in our walks with Christ. We remained connected to OCF in follow on duty assignments. When looking for a final assignment, connection to this community was a major consideration. Since arriving back, the Lord provided a series of opportunities to grow and deepen our connection to Leavenworth OCF ministry. We were blessed to be selected for full time ministry.

LTC Steve & Angela Kreh, USA (Ret.)

Steve (1999) and Angela (2001) are both graduates of the U.S. Military Academy who met while working in youth ministry as cadets. Steve retired from the Army as an Engineer officer while Angela served in combat as a Signal Corps officer before staying home with their five children. The Krehs began as full-time field staff at USMA in 2020. Numerous devoted volunteers assist the USMA OCF ministry in its mission to equip and to encourage cadets as they grow in Christ preparing them to lead like Jesus. The ministry team accomplishes this through individual and small group meetings as well as weekend social and special events. Many of these events take place at the OCF Fellowship House located directly outside West Point’s Thayer gate.

Tim and Kim were first introduced to OCF at the Naval Academy and have been participating in the ministry ever since, most recently by serving on the OCF Council, as a Mentor for RMH, and leading a local OCF study in their home. Their desire is to teach, train, equip, encourage, and charge the officers, families, and leaders that come through Air University.
