About Bethel Music

Bethel Music is a worship movement dedicated to pursuing the presence of God and capturing fresh expressions of worship out of Redding, California. Since forming in 2001, Bethel Music has grown from a local church music ministry to a global collective of songwriters, artists, and musicians. The movement was co-founded by Brian and Jenn Johnson with a mission to raise up worshippers who take hold of their true identity and pursue intimacy with God above all else.

 

The Bethel Music collective has released 17 worship albums each of which carry a unique theme and feature some of the most recognized artists in the genre, the most recent releases being Homecoming (2021), Peace, Vol. II (2021), and Simple (2022).  In 2021, the label was nominated for 6 Dove Awards, followed by another 11 in 2022, spanning categories from Songwriter of the Year and Worship Album of the Year to Inspirational and Rock/Contemporary Songs of the Year.

 

As a youthful label of only 13 years, Bethel Music has broken records, consistently ranking in CCLI’s top 25 songs since 2013. Most notably “Goodness of God” holds the record for most weeks at No. 1 with 68 weeks and “This Is Amazing Grace” has ranked in the 25 songs since 2014, “No Longer Slaves” since 2016, and “The Lion and the Lamb” since 2017. In addition, “Reckless Love” has appeared in the top 10 since 2018 and “Living Hope” in the top 10 since 2019. Hitting a new stride over the last few years, Bethel Music has continually ranked at #6 in the top 10 radio market share.

 

In 2023, Bethel Music is looking forward with a number of new releases, beginning with their most ambitious album to date, Come Up Here. The project, two years in the making, was recorded in the heart of the Redwoods of Northern California and embodies everything that Bethel Music stands for musically, lyrically, and visually.
