Scott Arnold, is a community servant that has shared most of his life around sports. His love for sports shines through the passion and commitment to help develop young men that are searching for hope within the communities they grow up in.
Scott was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he grew up a Ohio State Buckeyes and Cincinnati Bengals fan. On any given Saturday and Sunday, there is no doubt in mind that during football season you can attest to Scott watching some football. He met his beloved late wife, Nicole Arnold in his hometown as well. Through Christ, their relationship grew them closer and after becoming married, they later created three beautiful daughters.
Scott and his family relocated to South Florida, residing in Riviera Beach, Florida. Community leader, Dan Calloway, welcomed Scott with open arms becoming a mentor and father figure. Mr. Calloway’s presence,
support, and guidance led Scott to learning how to launch a 501(c)3, known as Team Sports Ministries today. Scott began to realize the pain, trauma, socio economic impact young men were faced with, and lack of guidance. Stepping up and going beyond set in with Scott to provide a sense of safety, nutrition, family-oriented community, and guidance for student athletes. Palm Beach Gardens Community High School and William T. Dwyer High School, became the first two schools that Scott would work with.
When Scott and Nicole founded Team Sports Ministries in 2008, they were blessed to be a part of William T. Dwyer’s 2009 Football State Championship experience. From the many practices, meals, devotions, and team bonding experiences Scott and Nicole shared with the players, they realized this was their calling. Years later, Team Sports Ministries now serve five local high schools in Palm Beach County. The journey continues to expand into more schools.
