John & Carol Arnott
John and Carol Arnott are the founding pastors of Jubilee Stratford. They planted Jubilee in Carol’s hometown of Stratford in 1981, after the Lord spoke to them on a missions trip in Indonesia. As two broken people with a passion to love the broken-hearted people around them, John and Carol pioneered a community of believers with ardent hearts to go to the streets of Stratford and impact the city’s youth. Jubilee quickly became known as a “love church” where it was known that you could “come as you are and be loved” and eventually grew out of 8 different locations before the existing building was built. John and Carol’s vision for the kingdom of heaven to influence and impact our community grew to the nations when they moved in 1992 to focus on the Toronto Airport Vineyard, which they planted in 1987. To this day, Jubilee’s very fabric and DNA reflect the core values of John & Carol, as their embrace of the Father heart of God, their raw love and passion for intimacy with Jesus and their deep longing for the ministry and anointing of the Holy Spirit has left a significant mark on our community.
