What do I do with my instrument when I’m not using it?
We will have a space for you to store your instrument during sessions, but we will not be responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged gear.
Are meals provided?
When you register you will have the ability to purchase a lunch and/or dinner pass for the week. There will be no daily purchase options available. Purchased passes will allow you to pick up your meal on campus instead of going off site to eat and meals are prepared by our kitchen staff daily.
I pre-purchased lunch, where do I pick it up?
Meals can be picked up in the Dining Room in the back hallway. Signs will be posted.
Are there other places to eat?
If you have a vehicle you will have more than enough time to go into town to purchase lunch. HeBrews Coffee is on site and has a selection of snacks and sandwich boxes.
Where do I stay?
If you still need housing options, here is a list of sites that we recommend to book your lodging:
Upon purchasing your ticket you will be invited to join a private Facebook group where you can arrange accommodations with other students.
What is the weather like in Redding?
Redding is hot and dry. Be prepared for 100+ days with sunshine. The Sanctuary of the Church will be Air Conditioned, so bring a sweater.
How do I get around?
You will need to provide your own transportation. We do not provide shuttles or airport pick ups/drop offs. The best thing to do is to link up with other students and share a car rental.
If you are staying in a host home with a Bethel Family do not expect them to drive you to and from school unless specifically arranged.
What airport do I fly into?
Redding Municipal Airport (RDD, 15 miles) or Sacramento International (SMF, 160 miles).
What do I do on the weekend?
You are welcome to attend Bethel Church services. Redding has mountains and lakes. Grab a friend and enjoy the beautiful nature that surrounds the city.
Can I save my seat for the entire event?
No. You can only save your seat for the morning Main Session for 1 day. You will have to line up to get a seat every morning.
Where can I sign up to volunteer?
You can email [email protected] and we can let you know when sign ups go live (usually 6 weeks pre event).
