Jake and Jenn DeRose – Montebelluna, Italy

Jake has been in Italy since February 2012 serving along side the very first Calvary Chapel ever started in Italy, in a small town in northern Italy called Montebelluna, about an hour east of Venice. He has also been serving with an extension campus of Calvary Chapel Bible College in Montebelluna.

Jake is currently fulfilling the duties of the Youth and College Pastor and one of the Worship Leaders at the church. He is also the Dean of Men and one of the teachers on staff at the Bible College.

Jake tells us: “It’s been a life changing adventure serving Jesus in Italy and He has opened my eyes to the great need of the gospel here in a nation with less than 1% who are Born-Again, Evangelical, Protestant Christians.”

Jake met his future wife, Jennifer while serving at the Bible College.  They were married in Fort Lauderdale, FL on August 6th, 2016.  They are serving together at the Bible College, and they covet your prayers!

Calvary Chapel Fountain Hills is blessed to provide support for Jake and Jenn as they serve the Lord in Italy.
