Sozo in action:

The SOZO ministry is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry which focuses on getting to the root of the things hindering your personal connection with the Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. A healed connection with the Godhead allows you to walk in the destiny to which you have been called.

  • SOZO is an inner healing/deliverance ministry
  • SOZO is simple, fast, Holy Spirit led and effective
  • SOZO finds issues in minutes instead of years
  • SOZO helps heal your relationship with God to enable you to fulfill your destiny

“Sozo” is referenced 110 times in the New Testament and is a Greek word meaning, “to save, make well or make whole.” According to Strong’s Greek Dictionary of the New Testament “Sozo” means, “to save, deliver, heal and preserve.” The writers of the New Testament showed the completeness of the word “Sozo”, by using it in different contexts to refer to each aspect of salvation, healing and deliverance.

Here are a few examples of these New Testament verses that describe the three aspects of “Sozo”:


That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you shall be saved (SOZO).
~ Romans 10:9

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save (SOZO) what was lost.
~ Luke 19:10


But Jesus turning and seeing her said, “Daughter, take courage, your faith has made you well” (SOZO)], and at once the woman was made well (SOZO)].
~ Matthew 9:22


And those who had seen it reported to them how the man who was demon-possessed had been made well (SOZO).
~ Luke 8:36

The purpose of Sozo is to establish a direct connection to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit for the individual who is receiving ministry. Our aim is to love people and to provide ministry so that the healing of past wounds can break strongholds, replace lies with God’s truth, and close “doors” to the enemy. We want people connected to the Godhead in a more intimate way in order to walk out and fulfill a destiny in Christ Jesus.

 There are six tools incorporated into the SOZO model:

  • Father Ladder
  • Four Doors
  • Presenting Jesus
  • The Wall
  • Trigger Mechanisms (Advanced Tool)
  • Divine Editing (Advanced Tool)

The SOZO tools are used with the leading of the Holy Spirit and through this process inner wounds are healed, spiritual strongholds are broken, “doors” are closed and God’s truth is revealed.


"The Sozo ministry provides gentle yet powerful
