Sozo Ministry

SOZO (the Greek word meaning “saved, healed, delivered”) is a unique inner healing ministry aimed at helping people get to the root of things hindering their personal connection with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Trained team members facilitate this unique experience for individuals to receive full healing in order to walk in the destiny to which they have been called. SOZO is not counseling or therapy – team members empower individuals to hear directly from the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Information shared on the Sozo Request Form below or during the Sozo session is kept confidential. We will not share any information with your church leadership, family or therapist without your approval.  We send you home with the words that God has spoken over you during the session and request that you review and meditate on them for the next 30 days after your Sozo session.

Sozos are scheduled on Mondays and occasional Thursdays. Sozo sessions typically last 1 ½ – 2 hours. When your Sozo Request Form is submitted, you will receive a call or an email from our staff to make an appointment.

If you have any questions, or have not been contacted within one week of your application date, please please call our office at: (716) 694-7816.

Thank you so much for your interest and we look forward to witnessing your breakthrough with God!
