John & Carol Arnott
John and Carol Arnott are the Founding Pastors of Catch The Fire Toronto (formerly known as the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship) and are Presidents of Catch The Fire World. They are also overseers of the Partners in Harvest network of churches around the world. As international speakers, John and Carol have become known for their ministry of revival in the context of the Father’s saving and restoring love. As the Holy Spirit moves with signs and wonders, they have seen millions of lives touched and changed through God’s power and Christ’s love.
John attended Ontario Bible College (now Tyndale College) in the late 1960’s and then pursued a successful career in business. In 1980, while on a ministry trip to Indonesia, John and Carol responded to God’s call on their lives for full-time ministry. Upon returning home, they started Jubilee Christian Fellowship in Stratford, Ontario in 1981. The Lord then called them to Toronto in 1987, where Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship was started. In January 1994, through a sovereign outpouring of the Holy Spirit, revival exploded into protracted nightly meetings which continued for 12 years, as the church came to the world’s attention as a place where God was meeting with His people.
John is known for his teachings on the Father’s love, grace and forgiveness and the Holy Spirit’s power. He continues to impart wise counsel and provides a strong framework for those who want to see the power of God manifest in their church. Carol is especially known for her teachings on intimacy and soaking.
John and Carol live in the Greater Toronto Area. They have four adult children and five grandchildren. They travel extensively while continuing to oversee Catch The Fire and Partners in Harvest networks of churches. Catch The Fire Toronto is a city-wide church in Toronto with multiple campuses and thousands of vibrant members from many diverse and ethnic backgrounds. Catch The Fire World is our international church planting and outreach arm for conferences, schools and churches. Partners in Harvest (PIH) & Friends in Harvest (FIH) is our church network of over 500 churches internationally in over 50 nations.
