Julia Dedmon felt the call of God on her life around 5 years old when she used to weep in Presence of God during the corporate prayer time at church. At an early age, she was singing, playing piano, leading praise and worship with her mom and sister, and singing in the choir. She was raised in a strong, bible-based church before the Holy Spirit fully apprehended her when she was 16 years old after a supernatural encounter with the voice of God at youth camp. At that point, she started walking in a lifestyle of radical faith and at 17 she met the Holy Spirit in a deep and profound way while attending Bethel Church in Redding, CA. She felt welcomed there by the intimacy and freedom in the Lord she always longed for but didn’t know was available.
Julia, and her husband, Chad are ordained ministers through Iris Ministries with Drs. Heidi and Rolland Baker and enjoy partnering with and annually traveling to Africa to be a part of what God is doing there. Since 2008, she and Chad have traveled to over 25 nations releasing healing, prophetic words and songs, ministering the Word, and enjoying God together.
She and Chad co-founded a non-profit called Encountering Jesus Ministries, which is in direct partnership with Iris Ministries. Julia loves to see hearts healed and restored in the Presence and Glory of God. Over the last several years, has been blessed to watch God set people free, healed, and delivered in the marketplace and church.
Julia loves coaching, developing, releasing, and empowering individuals to become everything God has called them to be. She holds her Bachelor of Arts in Music from Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles, CA. She is a graduate of the Bethel School of Ministry and Worship Programs.
In addition to traveling, Julia and Chad have a pastoral background with youth and young adults when they lived in Orange County, CA for several years. They have been married 11 years and are based out of Bethel Church in Redding, CA. Her favorite part of life is being a dedicated wife and mother.
