Matt Bentley serves The Well as an Elder. As an Elder, Dig Group leader, and MC leader, Matt is passionate about seeing God’s people equipped to accomplish His mission in their backyard and beyond. Matt grew up between Maryland and Memphis before moving to Boulder with his wife, Ruth, for graduate school in 2015, when they first joined The Well. He received his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from CU in 2020, and he now works in humanitarian assistance providing clean drinking water in response to disasters and crises around the world. Outside of work, Matt is an avid rock climber, along with his wife Ruth, and you are most likely to find him climbing a Flatiron, bouldering in his garage, or enjoying a cup of specialty coffee with his wife and dog.
