On January 31, 2021 Bethel Church, Redding honored Eric and Candace Johnson as they transitioned out of their role as Senior Pastors of Bethel Church, Redding after nearly 10 years of service and 18 years in leadership positions at Bethel.
With much prayer and counsel, Eric and Candace have decided that this chapter of serving as Senior Pastors has drawn to a close, and on Sunday, November 22, 2020, they publicly announced their resignation. Their decision has been prayerfully considered and thought through for several months. They were not asked or pressured to resign. There was no moral failure, inciting incident, pandemic or political fatigue, theological difference, or issue of health or capacity involved. Rather, this is about courage, strength, and faith, as they have an inner sense that this role is no longer the right fit for them in this season of their lives.
“We know this was not an easy decision for Eric and Candace to make. And yet, know that as a Senior Leadership Team, we fully support them in their decision to resign as the Senior Pastors of Bethel Church here in Redding. And while there is sadness in this transition, we remain expectant and full of hope for this next season: for them and for us.” - Bill Johnson
