In 1997, Randy Clark, a healing evangelist, held meetings at Bethel Church and sent a team to train a congregation how to be prayer servants. Dawna DeSilva, the leader and founder of the Sozo Ministry, attended this training at Bethel. Afterward, Dawna began to use the tools (methods) she learned 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, the Bethel Sozo Ministry started traveling to train and equip other churches and organizations to start their own Sozo Ministry. In 2005, the International Bethel Sozo Organization was created to aid and support all the Bethel Sozo Ministry Teams around the world. Bethel Sozo is under the leadership of Dawna DeSilva and Teresa Liebscher.
