In 1997 Randy Clark, a healing evangelist, held meetings at Bethel Church. At that time, Pastor Clark would send a team to train a congregation how to be prayer servants. A small portion of that training was a model of “deliverance” from Argentina. This model became our first tool “The Four Doors”.
Dawna DeSilva, the leader and founder of the Sozo Ministry, attended this training at Bethel. Afterward, Dawna began to use the concept of “The Four Doors” when she prayed for people. Seeing a miraculous difference in people’s level of freedom, the “Sozo Ministry” was birthed. As the Sozo Ministry developed, the Lord introduced other tools that have aided in people being healed and released from the wounds and lies which have hindered those individuals from the Godhead and their destiny.
In 1998 other churches and organizations requested the Sozo Ministry Team to share what God had started. Thus, the Bethel Sozo Ministry Team started traveling to train and equip other churches and organizations to start their own Sozo Ministry. They have traveled international and to numerous states for this training.
In 2005, the Bethel Sozo Ministry so covered the globe that International Bethel Sozo Organization was created to aid and support all the Bethel Sozo Ministry Teams around the world.
