About us

Bethel SOZO network Germany is an interdenominational ministry. Firstly, it supports and advises churches on how to establish a prophetic prayer ministry for inner healing and deliverance. Secondly, it also provides a network or platform for people who would like to find a ministry which can offer our services to them in their local area


It is part of our vision to expand SOZO throughout Germany so that everyone would be able to find a church offering SOZO nearby. Throughout Germany we offer seminars, training and supervision so that every SOZO ministry can be up to date. We certify and recertify our SOZO ministries listed on the homepage to ensure that our high quality standards are upheld and the ministries are trustworthy.


As a team we are experienced leaders, mentors and coaches from all over Germany who have it on our heart:

… to proclaim good news to the poor.

… He has sent us to bind up the brokenhearted,

    to proclaim freedom for the captives

    and release from darkness for the prisoners. (Is 61,1)

SOZO founders and leaders

Dawna DeSilva is founder and co-leader of SOZO international Healing and Deliverance Ministry, that started in Bethel Church Redding. Dawna is part of the leadership team in the transformation Centre of Bethel Church.

She equips pastors and leaders in SOZO, serves them prophetically and teaches them about their calling. As such she releases a new vision and freedom for people, churches and cities.

Regardless of how deep the wounds are, that need dealing with, she serves in authority and meekness. As a result, she is able to impart hope and healing.

Teresa Liebscher co-leads the SOZO ministry. She is also founder and leader of Shabar Ministry of Bethel Church, since 2002. For Shabar she has developed a training course that is offered together with SOZO Training. Since 1997 she has been involved in SOZO and since 1998 she has been busy training people in it. Alongside Dawna she is also in the leadership team at the Transformation Centre at Bethel Church, Redding.

It is her passion to connect the body of Christ to the father, to Jesus and the Holy Spirit in a new way.

Erna Engelmayr leads and coordinates SOZO Germany.

She loves the quick and life-changing healing, deliverance and restoration that SOZO brings into people’s lives.

Her vision is to offer and expand SOZO Germany amongst all denominations. Everyone should have the opportunity to receive a SOZO in their own area.

Erna lives with her family in Bavaria near Augsburg and is a member of the Arche, a Christian Free Church. As a SOZO mentor she supports other churches and congregations to establish a SOZO ministry in their church.
