The June issue of Charisma magazine features a series of articles surrounding the wildly popular Christian church group out of Redding, CA. The issue of Charisma Magazine will feature the Jesus Culture movement on the front cover. Articles within will feature Senior Pastor Bill Johnson, Beni Johnson, Banning Leibscher, and Kris Vallotton.

Bill Johnson
Bill and Brenda (Beni) Johnson are the Senior Pastors of Bethel Church. Bill is a fifth generation pastor. It is their belief that healing and deliverance must become the common expression of this gospel of power once again.

Healings, ranging from cancer to broken bones, to learning disorders and emotional healing, happen with regularity. And these works of God are not limited to revival meetings. The Christian church is learning how to take this anointing to the schools, workplace, and neighborhoods with similar results. Bill teaches that we owe the world an encounter with God, and that a Gospel without power is not the Gospel that Jesus preached.

Jesus Culture
In the summer of 1999, the youth group led by Banning Liebscher at Bethel Church in Redding, California, launched the first Jesus Culture conference. The heart of these gatherings was to serve the Christian church and lead young people to experience the radical love of God. At each conference there was a strong presence of the Lord, and the youth and young adults were going back to their homes, schools, work places and churches, completely impassioned and transformed. Now, Charisma Magazine is taking note.

This new breed of revivalists would be marked by four main characteristics:

1. They would be connected with spiritual fathers and mothers and aligned under their covering.
2. They would be passionately in love with Jesus – encountering His extravagant love for them daily.
3. They would give their lives to prayer and know how to win the war in the heavens.
4. They would walk in the supernatural – demonstrating the Kingdom of God through power.

Shortly after God commissioned him to mobilize this new breed of revivalists, Banning began taking Jesus Culture conferences to the Christian church in different regions, and currently holds them in Redding, Orange County, Dallas/Ft Worth, Chicago, Atlanta, and multiple cities through Australia and England. Also, in response to the mandate, Jesus Culture Music and Campus Awakening have been inspired and birthed out of Jesus Culture.

The June issue of Charisma magazine will catapult Bill Johnson and the Bethel Church ministries to a new level of national interest as an emerging Christian church.
