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


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


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 partners up with ministries and Generals of faith from all over the world to conduct worldwide outreach. The objective is to bring unity and cohesion to the body of Christ in order to win souls and equip the saints.
