Matt and Elizabeth Bennett


Ciao Amici!

We are the Bennetts, and we serve with Cru in Italy (Agape Italia) reaching university students with the Gospel and equipping students to lead Gospel movements at their campuses across northern Italy. We have lived in the city of Bologna since 2015 (it's where we met!), and we are committed to seeing the Gospel change lives in Italy!

We both started serving with Cru after graduating from college (Matt from Baylor University, Elizabeth from the University of Oklahoma). Neither of us had really planned on working for Cru overseas, but God has a way of opening doors we never expect! As soon as we started meeting university students in Bologna, the spiritual reality of Italy came into focus: that most Italian students have never heard the Gospel or met someone who is following Jesus. In fact, less than 1% of all Italians are truly following Jesus.

We want to be a part of changing this statistic. We're committing to give the best hours of our days to reaching lost students with the Gospel, and we are so thankful you are considering partnering with us to do this!
