Pastor Kristi is the Regional Facilitator for SOZO Ministries. Since 2005,  she has been using SOZO in ministry settings, raising up teams and training others in Sozo ministry. Kristi and her husband Gary have seen God do tremendous things to free his people to walk out their destiny.

“I was truly blessed by my sozo session. It set me free from depression and opened my heart in a new way to Father God. I was set free and healed from the deep wounds that were exposed from situations in my past that caused fear and rejection. I am now free to move on in the plan God has for me. I feel such freedom! ” – Dale

The Sozo Ministry is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry, based at Bethel Church in Redding, CA, whose main goal is to get to the root of those things hindering your personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Thus with a healed connection with Father, Son and Holy Spirit you can walk in the destiny to which you have been called.

Dare To Believe Sozo Ministry sessions help Christians receive healing from spiritual and emotional wounds, and to uncover lies that keep them from living out  the truth of who they are in Christ. Dare To Believe Sozo sessions are friendly, gentle and confidential.

Sessions typically last from one to three hours and are conducted by Pastor Kristi Graner and trained volunteers who have a heart to help others overcome obstacles and strongholds in their lives.

The Sozo team sits down, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, walks you through the process of freedom and wholeness.

SOZO is not a counseling session but a time of interacting with Father, Son and Holy Spirit for wholeness and pursuing of your destiny.

Sozo sessions are scheduled by the leadership of Dare To Believe Ministry and are held at Twin City locations that support this ministry. Leaders of the Sozo Ministry are Kristi and Gary Graner. Kristi has been conducting and overseeing this type of ministry in a pastoral role for many years.

Screen Shot 2016-09-02 at 8.25.34 AMJesus came to set the captives free, and believers have been casting out demons for thousands of years with two words backed by the power in His name: “Come out.” But one revelation of modern-day deliverance ministry is driving debates in the 21st-century church. It’s called Sozo—based on a Greek word used in the Bible that means “to save, heal, preserve and rescue,” according to Strong’s Concordance.

We first see the word sozo in Matthew’s Gospel when the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would bear a son and call His name Jesus, and He will “save His people from their sins” (Matt. 1:21). When the Bible refers to Jesus saving people, sozo is frequently the word used.

But sozo also connotes inner and external healing. The Greek word is found in Scriptures related to God’s healing power, like the woman with the issue of blood who crawled through a crowd to touch the hem of Christ’s garments (Matt. 9:21-22) and the demonized man Jesus set free (Luke 8:36).
