As a pioneer in the field of research, Dr. Arnie Cole has spent most of his professional life tracking trends of human behavior and developing programs that can actually help change negative behaviors. In his current role as CEO of Back to the Bible and Director of Research and Development for the Center for Bible Engagement (CBE), Dr. Cole is dedicated to the mission of leading people into a dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ through daily Bible engagement.
He received a BA and MA in Psychology, as well as a EdD in Institutional Management from Pepperdine University. Dr. Cole has served as CEO of MegaVoice LLC, as well as Vice president of Development for Mission Aviation Fellowship. Today he is responsible for the operation of both domestic and international Bible teaching media ministries at BttB. Additionally, he leads the CBE in the discovery of why so many people own Bibles and never read them.
Dr. Cole is the co-author of Unstuck: Your Life, God’s Design, Real Change. Based on the analysis of more than 70,000 surveys, Unstuck reveals a spiritual growth plan that gives readers practical and proven ways to encounter Scripture daily, connect with God, and revitalize an otherwise lifeless faith.
Dr. Cole and his wife Char are the parents of adult children and operate Still Waters Ranch, an equestrian center that serves as a community outreach. The Coles live near Lincoln, Nebraska.
