REDDING, Calif. - Enrollment at the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry is growing and the school is looking to expand.
The Redding Civic Auditorium currently serves as the temporary campus for the school, but administrators say they recently got permission from the city to take on more students.
Construction is already in the works to convert the former Bloodsource building on Park Marina Drive into a campus for Bethel.
Some employees from neighboring businesses have expressed concerns with lack of parking, but administrators from the school say that they have already planned ahead to avoid that issue and will not be parking students in the shared parking lot.
"We have a license to use the parking lot across the street, for the motel that's no longer open," said Charlie Harper, senior administrator for Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry.
Harper said that they currently have 1,300 students enrolled at the school and expect that number to grow to more than 1,400 in the coming years.
Once construction is completed, the campus will be home to four large classrooms that can be configured into several smaller classrooms or two larger classrooms.
The school expects to be open in the new facility by February of 2019.
