Redding, Calif.—Management from the Redding Civic Auditorium is speaking out to clarify its relationship with Bethel Church after polarizing remarks from church leaders.
The Redding Civic Auditorium is managed by Advance Redding a nonprofit established in 2011.
In the statement released Monday, Advance Redding said it has been erroneously linked to Bethel’s position against proposed legislation to ban gay conversion therapy.
The Redding Civic Auditorium is currently home to students of Bethel’s School of Supernatural Ministry, but the auditorium is owned by the city.
Management said they do not discriminate and they make their selections on artist based on financial feasibility.
