"It doesn't matter where you are on the stage, just as long as you're there.”



The Program

Have you ever dreamed of studying Acting but don't feel you have the right level of experience? Have you trained before but not in a Kingdom culture? Do you long to minister more creatively whatever your sphere?

BCA is now offering a one year accredited program in Acting for students who have a desire to grow in the arts.

The BCA one year program requires no prior formal training and offers an overview of the Bethel Conservatory curriculum.

We invite you to spend a year training in the Presence of God with BCA to improve and develop your skills.

(All students are required to attend  a minimum of one year of BSSM Redding.  The One Year Certificate Program is not a fast track into the entertainment industry but an introduction to study drama at a higher level.)

If you were born with the ability to change someone’s perspective or emotions, never waste that gift. It is one of the most powerful gifts God can give—the ability to influence.
— Shannon L. Alder
