Heaven BentTara Jean Stevens / Frequency Podcast Network
Tara Jean Stevens grew up in a bizarre spiritual movement in Prince Rupert, British Columbia. As a teen, she had doubts about the claims of supernatural activity in her childhood church, but it took years to divulge fact from fiction. Today, she’s what they call a backslider; living free from religion and helping others navigate their own faith journeys.
This investigative series explores the world of Pentecostal and charismatic Christians, one season at a time. In season three, Tara Jean follows the Pentecostal spirit of revival to Nashville, Tennessee where a once thriving church is up in flames and a mutilated body is found inside. In season two, she examines the questionable teachings of Bethel Church, in Redding, California. In season one, Tara Jean seeks to understand the strange behaviour of worshippers in the “Toronto Blessing” movement.
