Tara Jean Stevens was a teenager when a bizarre spiritual movement spread to her childhood church in Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Worshipers were laughing uncontrollably, shaking, and falling to the ground. Some even claimed that gold teeth miraculously appeared in their mouths. In season 1, join Tara Jean as she begins her exploration of the “Toronto Blessing”. In season 2, she tracks the spread of this movement to Bethel Church, in Redding, California. Today, Bethel is one of the largest and most unusual churches in America. What goes on inside its bewildering School of Supernatural Ministry? Is Bethel as powerful as its critics believe it to be? And, during the COVID-19 pandemic, why are its most high-profile leaders defying public health orders? Heaven Bent: an examination of divine intervention.
