Long-time Bethel Music member Steffany Gretzinger is making a move to Nashville, Tennessee after spending the better part of the last decade in Bethel's home-base of Redding, California. "The rumors are true. After 10 years, The Lord is sending us to Nashville, TN. It's been a long time coming, but we were in no way hurrying to leave this house, this home," Steffany announced on Instagram last week in an emotional post alongside photos of the Bethel staff praying over her during the last set she led before leaving.
"I am reminded once more how lavishly God honors our obedience. It's not easy to leave THIS, but Jesus is the JOY ever set before me, and He is leading us out!!! We are SO excited!!! The fire always falls on sacrifice, and these fathers and mothers that surround me have given more than the world will ever know. Heaven only knows. Thank you for not only GIVING me room, but for MAKING me room to dance. Know that I love you deeply, and my gratitude is great. I've had several waves of ugly cries as that gratitude sweeps over me again and again for all the love and leadership over these years. And, I am sure you will only continue to lead us. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you," she continued.
Gretzinger has been part of Bethel Music for the last 10 years. While she didn't share details on her future path in Nashville or involvement in Bethel Music, she continued to say, "As I lay me down to sleep, I feel the presence and the pleasure of Jesus. I am wonderfully overwhelmed. Transitioning VERY sure that I will always be a beloved daughter here, and that we will absolutely come back home as often as we can."
