Since 1993, Matt and Janese Bennett have been committed to “Mobilizing the Reached to Evangelize the Unreached.” This vision has taken them to over 50 nations teaching, training, and mobilizing the body of Christ to complete the Great Commission. With an M. A. in Missiology from Regent University, Matt's expertise in the Muslim world, micro-businesses, and community development uniquely position him to equip the church to engage the end-time harvest.
Matt’s firm belief in empowering leaders through entrepreneurship is evident through his life as he engages the marketplace through real estate with Sage Sotheby’s International Realty in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Janese has worked with non-profits and small businesses to develop communication strategies for over 20 years. From database implementation to social media, websites, and global communications, her expertise has helped increase engagement and boost the bottom line.
In 2007, she founded Connected by Design which assists businesses and nonprofits as they share their story in the digital space. As a Facebook Certified Community Manager, she helps organizations maximize the potential of building community through Facebook Groups.
Her greatest joy comes from empowering churches to share the message of Christ around the world. As a missionary, church planter, and denominational communications director she gained a unique perspective for communicating across cultures and generations.
