Dann Farrelly has been on staff at Bethel Church in Redding, California since 1991, serving as the Lead Pastor, the head of Biblical Studies, and the Dean of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM). Since its inception in 1998, BSSM has grown from 36 students to well over 2,300, deploying revivalists into their own particular places of influence throughout the world.
Dann is a Biblical Studies graduate of Simpson University and holds a Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. As a lifelong believer, he answered God’s call to a career of ministry at the age of 17. With a pastor’s heart and a love of Scripture, Dann is uniquely gifted to bring rich and practical insights from the Word of God with wit, wisdom, and anointing. He loves to see people find their true joy in the Father’s deep affection for them.
He has been a catalyst to breakthrough for many through his powerful teaching, Brave Communication. His strength in this area is part of the “secret sauce” that has helped Bethel’s leadership be such an effective covenantal team over the years.
Dann's most cherished gift and deepest joy is the life he shares with his wonderful wife, Christie, their flat-out amazing children Aiden, Macy, and Trace, and the good times they enjoy with extended family and friends.
"God is invested in redeeming human beings and their mandate to create Heaven's culture here on earth, with Him."
