About Sozo ministry

Sozo ministry is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry based out of Bethel Church in Redding, CA. It was created to help you get to the root of things in your life that hinder your personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, so you can be healed, whole and walk in the destiny to which you’ve been called.

Dare to Believe ministry sessions

Each Sozo session helps you receive healing from spiritual and emotional wounds and uncover any lies you are believing that may be keeping you from living out the truth of who you are in Christ. 

Every Sozo session is friendly, gentle and confidential.

Sessions are conducted by a phenomenal team of highly trained volunteers who are dedicated to helping you overcome obstacles and strongholds in your life. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Sozo team will walk you through an intentional, personalized process toward freedom and wholeness.

Note: Sozo is not a counseling session. It is a time focused on interacting with Father, Son and Holy Spirit as they lead you into wholeness and freedom that will empower you to pursue your destiny.

In this episode we discuss our Sozo ministry and share what it’s all about and what you can expect.


On the blog

DTB’s inner healing and deliverance ministry is focused around the Bethel Sozo model and the work that Jesus did with people when He walked the earth. Sozo is simply a Greek word that is used more than 270 times in the New Testament.


“I found the freedom I came there for!”

“I was truly blessed by my SOZO session. It set me free from depression and opened my heart in a new way to Father God. I was set free and healed from the deep wounds that were exposed from situations in my past that caused fear and rejection. I am now free to move on in the plan God has for me. I feel such freedom!

“I have never felt so loved and cared for by prayer partners. I felt that it was all about me for that time, which was so healing. Both prayer ministers were so loving and completely tuned into what my needs might be and how they could support me. I loved the aspect of blessing those that have caused harm in my life. No malicious words were spoken, only words of understanding and words of wisdom.”
“How would you describe the results of this ministry time? I appreciate the calmness of the session. How the got to the root of my issues. Forgiving others and myself was a major breakthrough. I also appreciated the way the Holy Spirit was invited in. In the atmosphere as well as in my heart.”
“Unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I feel lighter, I feel open and free, and happy and healed on so many levels. My spirit, soul and body are in alignment, and I’d never heard of that before. I feel it!”

“I felt more free and less burdened. For the first time in several years I felt healed and whole. I am beyond thankful for this ministry time and feel like we cleared out some dark hidden cobwebs in my soul! I feel free, light, whole, redeemed.”

“The Dare To Believe SOZO ministry is unparalleled to conventional “therapy.” Kristi and her team carry a banner of freedom and a level of grace that compels the believer to commune with Jesus and see Him get His full reward in them!”

“Major breakthrough! I was amazed the tools that you gave me, things that you left me with and the ideas of God and the things that I could do with Him. You guys are amazing, thank you very much!”
