Homegrown Wellness: A Practical Approach

Bethel Church Redding, CA

In the pursuit of health and wellness there are always so many perspectives begging to be added to an already full life. During our 2013 Wellness Conference we want to provide a few practical tips that will be shared by those who have a passion about what they do, how you can continue to improve your health and the overall well-being of your family. Topics include instructions on how to create family-friendly meals, organic gardening, maintaining joy in the midst of crisis, making healthy restaurant choices, and much more. This year our speakers promise to bring you a refreshing approach to wellness, infused with their own personalities and experiences which is something you do not want to miss!

We will be providing resources for you to review, and you will also receive many opportunities to meet other men and women who share similar passions. Whether you are just contemplating about making some lifestyle changes or are already well on your way to improving your health, then this is the perfect place for you to jump in and join us on this journey to thriving in body, soul, and spirit!



Ronda Nelson

Dr. Ronda Nelson’s passion for wellness was ignited in 1993 when her young daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer. Her instincts and determination to help her daughter heal directly conflicted with the recommended treatment for the condition at that time. A relentless search for treatment options led Dr. Nelson to a simple truth that is the basis of her practice today—dietary choices will affect the physiology of the body—and she became determined to share this with others. Dr. Nelson is now an accomplished master herbalist and a Restorative Endocrinology™ Specialist. She holds a Ph.D. in Holistic Nutrition and works with a large population of Lichen Sclerosis patients. Extremely active in her community, Dr. Nelson teaches nutrition to first-graders at several elementary schools in the Redding, California, area. In addition, she teaches herbal, raw food, and family wellness classes and is a recurring keynote speaker at multiple national events for alternative medicine and nutrition. Dr. Nelson’s daughter is now a healthy mother of three children. Having seen countless patients heal completely with simple modifications to diet and lifestyle, Dr. Nelson remains committed to sharing her knowledge with others. Her goal is to help parents become healthier, thereby creating a healthier future generation.

Beni Johnson

Beni and Bill Johnson are the Senior Pastors of Bethel Church. 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.

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.

Beni's heart is to help people begin to carry joy in intercession. She believes that being an intercessor is capturing the heartbeat of heaven and declaring or praying that into your world. It is true agreement with heaven.

Kezia Neusch
Kezia grew up in London England and her interest with food and health began growing up in the BSE scare in the UK, the gradual popular move towards organic food and the fad diet driven culture of our world. With a fascination for science she began studying veterinary medicine where she studied deeper the science of nutrition and health and used her training to look at the science behind the different diets that popped up on magazine covers and talk shows. Working on a dairy farm and doing multiple placements within the meat industry gave her further awareness of the importance of understanding what we put into our bodies. She is passionate to see people embrace health as a lifestyle and in a way that brings freedom and not constraints. In 2007 Kezia came to California to study at BSSM and she now lives in Redding with her husband Jared and they are both on staff at Bethel Church.
