Meet the Founder

LeeAnn Bankhead

LeeAnn has served in the United States Air Force for over 21 years and is currently serving full-time in the Air National Guard as a Security Forces Plans and Programs Superintendent.

Desert Streams “Bethel Sozo” Ministry (Deliverance Ministry Partner)

Is a unique personal Inner healing and deliverance prayer ministry.  We are connected and trained by Bethel church and their Sozo ministry In Redding California. The heart and goal of this ministry is to deepen the connection of the participant to the Lord. We believe in the scripture in John 15 - that as a participant connects and abides in the Lord, good fruits will be produced in their lives.  We use various prayer type tools to discover any hinderances, wounds, or lies of the enemy that keep us from walking in a deep and personal relationship with Father God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Through the process the participants discover the Truth that the Lord has for them and take steps to align their hearts and minds with those truths. 

“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”” John‬ ‭8:32‬ ‭NLT 

The Sozo session is designed for 1 participant and up to 3 Sozo team leaders.  The sozo team will have 1 main lead facilitator, and up to 2 Intercessors.  The session can last anywhere from 90min to 3hrs.  Sessions will be done at Desert Streams Fellowship. 

2445 N. Coyote Dr. #101 Tucson Az 85745 

Or for non locals- by Zoom sessions.

Who We Are

World Wide Evangelism for a World Wide Harvest

Mission:

“Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15


Vision:

Engage, Equip, Empower, Entrust, Expand.

Statement of Faith

THE BIBLE is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God. There is ONE GOD, eternally existent in three Persons: God the Father God the Son God the Holy Spirit In the Deity of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right Hand of the Father, His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule. 

In the BLESSED HOPE - the rapture of the Church at Christ’s second coming. The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. Regeneration by the HOLY SPIRIT is essential for personal salvation. The redemptive work of Christ on THE CROSS provides healing for the body in response to believing prayer. 

The BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it, with the evidence of “speaking in tongues”. In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is able to live a HOLY LIFE. In the RESURRECTION of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.

How It Happens

The Ark International Ministries (I.M.) is committed to partnering with other churches and ministries in order to bring Holy Ghost Fire and sustained Revival to our region.  As door keepers of revival the Ark I.M. holds Sunday Worship Services from 3pm-5pm, Tuesday "Upper Room" strategic prayer and worship services from (6:00pm to 7:00pm) and discipleship classes every Friday evening from 6:00pm - 7:30pm.  We are committed to growing the body of Christ for end-time revival.

Tanya Drexler Prayer Director

Tanya has always been a deep desire to serve in ministry and was trained by the best prayer leaders, such as Pastor Jan Anderson and Karen Graham. Tanya did not expect to be given opportunities of leadership however, Father God determined otherwise, and Tanya considers it a gift that she is grateful to have been given. Under Pastor Jan and Karen she was trained in Healing Rooms and altar ministry. She has also worked with Empower Prayer and have led a small group in midnight prayer where they would call out to God for our city. Currently, Pastor LeeAnn has asked her to help oversee the prayer ministry at The Ark IM and has humbly accepted to serve in this capacity.

Tanya understands that God is triune and believes worship is also triune: we worship in song, prayer and with scripture. They are all equal and necessary and we all need them every day. It is her desire to see this family grow in their prayer life and in so doing The Ark IM will also grow.
