sozo prayer ministry

SOZO is the Greek word translated saved, healed, and delivered
SAVED: If you declare 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
HEALED: Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed (sozo) you.” And the woman was healed (sozo) at that moment.
Matthew 9:22
DELIVERED: Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured (sozo).”
Luke 8:36


SOZO ministry focuses on getting to the root of things that hinder our personal connection with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. With those connections healed, we can live more authentically in our identity in Christ—as a son or daughter of the King, walking in freedom and joy.

We all have areas where lies about God’s character have crept into our thinking. The lies usually formed when influential people in our lives unknowingly misrepresented God to us—often before we could reason. The lies may have resulted from emotional wounds and hurts, as well as faulty coping behaviors, developed to help protect ourselves from more pain. We’ve made assumptions about God and his thoughts toward us.

 During a SOZO prayer session, through forgiveness and insight from the Holy Spirit, the Lord makes a trade with us. He exchanges his truth for lies we have believed. We gain his perspective and see the Father, Son, Holy Spirit, others, and ourselves more accurately. We are delivered from deception, and Truth sets us free to live in our original design.
  • SOZO is simple, Spirit-led, and effective.
  • SOZO finds issues in minutes instead of weeks or months.
  • SOZO ministers to the whole person—spirit, soul, and body.

Personal Ministry Session

The SOZO team will sit down with you in a comfortable setting, and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, help you discover the areas God wants to heal. A SOZO is not a counseling session, but a time of interacting with God so you can take up the fullness of your salvation.

SOZO sessions run about 2-2½ hours and are led by 2-3 team members, one of whom is an intercessor. Appointments are available Tuesday and Friday mornings starting at 9:15 AM and Thursday evenings starting at 6 PM.
