Freedom Friends

Since the collection of tools developed by others began to be called "Sozo" it has been a voluntary association of individuals, ministries, churches and other organizations that use the Sozo Model in ministry or support its use. There are many others who use these tools individually - and the list is growing monthly. Many call it by some other name and there are variations.

We owe a debt of gratitude to those who originally developed these tools or gave them a better structure including: the Argentina Revival team, Randy Clark, Dave Grewe, Dr. Ed Smith, Pastor Alan Ray, Aiko Hormann and others. We also owe special gratitude to Dawna Desilva of Bethel Church in Redding CA who, in setting up an inner healing ministry there, began using the Four Doors tool and later (as others began using the tools and becoming friends) suggested the use of the Father Ladder, Presenting Jesus (a form of Dr. Ed Smith's approach), and tools from Aiko Hormann (divine editing and the trigger mechanisms).

We became involved in this ministry model when it only used the Four Doors as a tool (4 hour sozos!) and grew with it. One goal of TFR was to build simple understandings and a stronger biblical basis to allow this model to better spread among denominational churches and to a more conservative base. Out of that came the Ten Foundations, The Fruit Loop, the tie-in to the parables inLuke 15 (how Jesus did "inner healing") and the like.

In the time since the Freedom Resource began Sozo has grown from a fairly simple use of the “Four Doors” to a more full-bodied ministry using different tools borrowed from others and modified to fit our ministry approach well. Some differences in ministry focus or style have also grown up within the Sozo family. There has also been a strong Bethel Sozo network and hierarchy developed that is able to spread a consistent message of Sozo. Others trained in Sozo but outside that network may have faced some confusion about whether they are really practicing “Sozo” or not leading to some unintentional misunderstandings. We all want to avoid that.

Also during that time the Freedom Resource has been seeing that its strength and calling has begun to include many believers from more traditional and denominational settings. For these brothers and sisters the ability to tie such ministry directly to biblical truth and teach it as such, and to retain an overall approach and feel with which pastoral staff can feel comfortable is important – all without sacrificing the core values of freedom ministry.

For those reasons, and after discussions with Bethel Sozo and church leaders, we have felt that it would be best for all that we make some minor changes to our public presentation of the ministry we all love. As such we are beginning the transition of the name of what we do from “Sozo” to “Sozo based Freedom Prayer” or just “Freedom Prayer”. We will continue to teach, essentially unchanged, the messages and truths found in Freedom Tools and in the materials carried on the Freedom Resource web site. Only the name will be changed.

Our belief and hope, expressed from the beginning, is that Freedom Prayer is the name given to a model built by many not an organization controlled by few. It is a set of understandings and tools, its establishment is informal and often word of mouth. There is no controlling agency or group, no dues, and no certified membership. Think of it more like AA and less like FP Inc. and you will be mostly there! It is a network of friends and friends of friends. That is how we operate. It seems to be how Jesus set things up in the first place!

Our hope is that TFR can be one place (perhaps among many) where quality information true to the foundations of Freedom Prayer can be maintained and offered freely - sort of how Jesus commanded!

If you know of someone (it could be you) who might like to be on this list let us, or them, know. And thanks in advance.

The top set of links or contact information at the right is for others who do Freedom Prayer ministry and or training who have given us permission to place their contact information on this site.

Then there is a long list of links of others who minister similar, or related, things.

The Freedom Resource is providing these links as a service and does not guarantee the effectiveness of any person or organization's ministry, sanction others, nor certify in Sozo or Freedom Prayer training.
