Arneson Takes the Helm of Women's Soccer, Basketball Teams

The Athletic Department of Faith Baptist Bible College is excited to announce that Jack Arneson will be joining the department in July. Jack will be filling the Assistant Athletic Director role currently held by Reuben Rosekopf. Rosekopf announced back in September that the 2013-2014 seasons would be his final seasons of ministry at the college.

In addition to his role as the Assistant A.D., Arneson will also be taking over as head women’s soccer and basketball coach. The women’s basketball position was held by Rosekopf for the past six years. The women’s soccer position was filled on an interim basis during the 2013 season by Dr. Mark Stupka, and previous to that, Shon Lundberg.

Jack and his wife Lindsie, who will assist him in both sports, are familiar to Faith. Jack is a graduate of the former Pillsbury Baptist Bible College, and his wife is a graduate of Faith. Lindsie transferred to Faith after Pillsbury closed. Jack played both soccer and basketball while attending Pillsbury. Lindsie played volleyball and basketball at both Pillsbury and Faith.

During his basketball playing career, Jack received recognition twice as a First Team selection and MVP of the NIAC conference. Jack was also 1st Team All Region in the NCCAA II North Central Region (the same region Faith currently competes in), and was an NCCAA II Honorable Mention All American. In soccer, Jack received recognition as an NCCAA II North Central 1st Team All Region player. His wife Lindsie is a decorated athlete as well. While at Faith, Lindsie was selected as an NCCAA II North Central 1st Team All Region player in volleyball and basketball. She was also an NCCAA II Honorable Mention and 2nd Team All American, both in basketball.

Jack graduated from Pillsbury with a Bible degree, with minors in both coaching and youth ministry. He is currently pursuing his master’s degree in Sport Management, and will complete that work in December. Lindsie graduated from Faith with an Elementary Education degree, and also plans to finish up her master’s degree work soon. Jack and Lindsie have spent the past three years coaching a collegiate women’s basketball team in Minneapolis, MN, where Jack was selected as this past season’s NIAC Coach of the Year. In addition to serving as her husband’s assistant, Lindsie has served at Woodcrest Baptist Academy as the 5th/6th grade teacher for the past three years.
