Scott and Angie Bentley

Scott: 

In 2006, three years after making a decision to follow Jesus, I (Scott) was working for a wireless internet provider. I’d always had this nagging feeling that I wasn't doing what I was meant to do.  It was at this time that I prayed to the Lord, asking Him to use my life however He wished.

I had no idea what God had in store for me.

Six months later, I met Angie. As we dated she began to tell me about her life as a missionary. I was intrigued when she told me how Cru had a great need for people with computer skills like mine.

I met with Cru’s IT (Information Technology) team and, in November 2007, felt God wanted me to also join staff as a missionary.

I serve behind-the-scenes in technology at our world headquarters in Orlando, excited that how God's wired me helps provide needed infrastructure to the ministry so that--ultimately--more and more people can hear the good news of Jesus.

Angie: 

From early on, my (Angie) dream had always been to work in a big-city ad agency. However, God had done so much in my life through my college involvement with Cru at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln that I was considering joining its staff as a missionary.

So, I did in 1998.

Since becoming a missionary, my roles have included ministering to college students in Boulder, CO, launching a website to encourage our missionary women around the world, and directing our corporate website Cru.org.

Since becoming a mom to Lizzy (2011) and Joshua (2013), I’ve led a wellness ministry at our world headquarters with a strong desire to help our 1000+ missionaries there be healthy for a lifetime, including offering Jazzercise classes to the women at the office. I’m also serving on our Sending & Recruiting team, helping women–specifically moms–find a great connection in ministry for the strengths, abilities and passions God’s given them.
