Bart McCurdy, his teenage son Billy, and I went to Bethel Redding to attend the group’s evening gathering. We went simply observe–to see what takes place during a Bethel meeting, with their own eyes. As we approached the front door of the building, we were met by Sean, a member of Bethel’s security team. We introduced ourselves. As we walked in the door, Sean stopped us and said that a pastor would need to talk to us before we went any farther. Moments later, the head of security and two staff pastors arrived. They explained to us that because of the way they had “dishonored” the leadership staff of Bethel Redding, via Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube we were banned from being at Bethel.
Here’s the audio of our encounter with staff members of Bethel Redding.
