Bethel Music has announced the sale of tickets to its 2024 Bethel Music Worship School, a 10-day event aimed at training worship leaders and Christian creatives. 

Featured speakers include Christian author and hip hop artist Jackie Hill Perry, Christian Contemporary Music artist Natalie Grant, and former Delirious? Frontman Martin Smith.

“Bethel Music Worship School is for Worship Leaders, Songwriters, Musicians, and Creatives who want to grow in heart and skill as they serve the local and global church,” Bethel Music’s website says. “Grow your skills while you learn what it means to be fully alive in Christ and grow in a deeper understanding of who you are in Him.”

Bethel Music, which is an extension of the worship ministry of Bethel Church in Redding, California, is internationally known for its popular worship songs, which are sung by thousands of churches every Sunday.

Bethel Church has also been the center of some controversy within the evangelical movement, in part because of its association with Seven Mountains Dominionism, a movement of Charismatic Christians that sees itself as mandated to dominate the “seven spheres” of society: family, religion, education, media, entertainment, business, and government. 

Adherents to the movement believe that dominating these seven spheres of society will hasten the end times and return of Jesus Christ.

Bethel Church’s School of Supernatural Ministry has also come under scrutiny, as the program aims to train students to perform supernatural miracles, such as faith healings.

Bethel Church gained national attention in 2019 after calling upon Christians to pray for the physical resurrection of Olive Heiligenthal, the 2-year-old daughter of Bethel worship leader Kalley Heiligenthal, who had tragically died in her sleep. The calls for prayer lasted for roughly a week before Bethel announced that it had reached the conclusion that Olive would not be raised.

The church came under public criticism again in 2020, when it was reported that the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry had become the epicenter of a COVID-19 outbreak, with the Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency connecting 123 cases to the school over a period of two weeks.
