For decades the New Horizons pastoral team had led hundreds of people in experiencing healing from emotional wounds and to find freedom from hindrances to their spiritual growth. In 2007 our pastors learned about the SOZO model used at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. and decided to adopt this model for inner healing and freedom.
The founders and the leaders of the Bethel SOZO Ministry, Dawna Desilva and Teresa Liebscher, and their entire team came to New Horizons for five days of ministry and presentation of the Basic SOZO Seminar. Over 50 of our leaders (pastors, elders, small group leaders, youth and children staff) received a SOZO from the Bethel SOZO team and about 100 people participated in the Basic Seminar, all of which was amazingly fruitful.
Since then the New Horizons SOZO Ministry Team ministers to hundreds of people a year from around the Pacific NW Region and other states. The testimonies are amazing! Their encounters with God and the freedom they have found in a SOZO session has brought about emotional health and peace, accelerated their spiritual growth, and has enabled them to face challenges of life with renewed and lasting faith and hope.
