Our Staff

Staff Overview

BSSM has a large staff of over 60 and growing! Most of our staff have been through BSSM themselves and all of them carry the love, passion and anointing of a revivalist. The primary training and instruction at BSSM is done by our staff members and is unique because it is taught by apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers and this gives the teaching a kind of living perspective with five-fold distinctions. BSSM also has the opportunity to host many powerful guest speakers who join us throughout the year.

BSSM Staff

Senior Leadership

Leaders with a Vision

BSSM's Senior Leaders have carried a vision for a school of revivalist for many years and have been instrumental in the direction, development and leadership of the school since it's inception in 1998.

SENIOR LEADERS - Bill and Beni Johnson

Bill and Brenda (Beni) Johnson are the Senior Pastors of Bethel Church. Bill is a fifth generation pastor with a rich heritage in the things of the Spirit. Together they serve a growing number of churches that have partnered for revival. This apostolic network has crossed denominational lines in building relationships that enable church leaders to walk in both purity and power.

The present move of God has brought Bill into a deeper understanding of the phrase, "on earth as it is in heaven." Heaven is the model for our life and ministry. Jesus lived with this principle by only doing what He saw His Father doing. Learning to recognize the Holy Spirit's presence, and how to follow His lead will enable us to do the works of Christ, destroying the works of the devil. Healing and deliverance must become the common expression of this gospel of power once again.

Bill and the Bethel Church family have taken on this theme for life and ministry. Healings, ranging from cancer to broken bones, to learning disorders and emotional healing, happen with regularity. This is the children's bread. And these works of God are not limited to revival meetings. The 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.

Beni has a call to intercession that is an integral part of the Bethel Church mission. She is in charge of the Bethel's Prayer House, ministry teams and the intercessors. The Lord has given her a heart for broken people of all ages. Her insight into strategies for prayer and her involvement in prayer networks have helped to bring the much-needed breakthrough in Bethel's ministry.

A Letter from Pastor Bill

We are very excited and thankful for your consideration of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. The present revival is gaining intensity and focus. Our heart is to stay tuned in to what the Spirit of God is doing, and to help train people accordingly for the last days harvest.

A primary emphasis in this school is for believers to return to having signs and wonders naturally be a part of their lifestyle. Those who simply want good doctrine on miracles will not fit in here. As John Wimber put it, "Faith is spelled r-i-s-k." We have worked to create an environment where people can take risks in learning to operate in the supernatural without fear of rejection or failure. This gospel must go forth with power for massive world wide revival. If revival is your passion, come and join us.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or write us.

 Blessings!

BSSM SENIOR OVERSEERS - Kris and Kathy Vallotton

Kris Vallotton is a noted prophetic voice in Northern California, and has trained prophetic teams in this region. He is a sought after speaker with a vision for equipping an "Elijah generation" for the end-time harvest. Kathy's practical wisdom and prophetic insight combine to give her a unique and profound ministry as both an instructor and the school's administrator. Kathy is also an anointed worship leader, assisting with the training of the worship teams at the school.

Both Kris and his wife Kathy have a vision to raise up a company of warriors to impact this generation for Christ. Their goal is to see the fulfillment of Isaiah 61 with their own eyes. This prophecy begins with individual people getting delivered and healed--it ends with the ruined cities being restored.

Kris says it is time for the fire of God to burn up His enemies and warm the hearts of the lost. This mandate has become their mission. God has instructed them to gather together warriors with like hearts, then train and equip them, and send them into the Harvest. Holy Spirit fortifications must be established in the midst of the darkest places of the planet earth. Kris is currently Senior Associate Pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, California and Kris and his wife Kathy are Overseers at Bethel's School of Supernatural Ministry. They have four children and five grandchildren.

A Letter from Pastor Kris

Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry is dedicated to worldwide transformation through spiritual revival. We are training and equipping the Body of Christ to bring the love of God and the power of the Holy Spirit into the darkest places of the planet and establish Holy Spirit fortifications, resulting in the kingdom of this world becoming the kingdom of our God.

Bethel is more than a school, it's a Holy Spirit journey into the realm of the impossible, a heavenly adventure where no one dare travel without God. In this haven of love, students will learn how to minister with power and naturally walk in signs and wonders.

We are in the midst of the greatest revival in human history. Yet there remains a distance between what should be and what will be. That distance is you! What will you be? You are the bridge between history and His story. You are the sons of the prophets.

The sick, the demonized, the poor, the blind, the lame, and the lost are all waiting to see what you have learned. Don't disappoint them!

Working while it's day,

Pastor Kris Vallotton
