About us

Sozo Ministries International

was established in 1983 by Marion Daniel.
Our ministry's vision is to "bring wholeness to the world through Jesus"

For nearly forty years..., we have shared the message of God's love and healing power. Find out more about our ministry and the miraculous journey which God has led us on since the ministry started…

Marion Daniel, founding Pastor


It is our desire to bring the message of the whole gospel to God's people and the world. Jesus died that we might be saved, healed and made whole. Holy Scripture proves that it is God's best that we are whole in body, mind and spirit.

In the original Biblical language, the word “sozo” means saved, healed and whole. We believe Father God heals His people as they enter into worship in the presence of holiness, and in the power of the anointing of the Holy Ghost.

Pastor Marion Daniel, supported by a team of people, ministers the whole gospel and the revelation that God delivers and heals His people today.


  • Monthly meetings at the Dunwood Oaks Centre which focus on healing and deliverance. Valuable times of praise, worship, ministry of the Word and personal prayer for salvation, healings and miracles.
  • Weekly fellowship meetings which focus on teaching and equipping believers.
  • A variety of wholeness and victory conferences offering wisdom from God's Word and prayers of authority.
  • Celebrations of Biblical feasts throughout the year.
  • Ministry to people affected by an involvement in freemasonry, as well as other brotherhoods and ungodly groups.
  • Ministry to people with Jewish roots. In the journey to embrace our Jewish roots, we have seen that many of God's chosen people live persecuted lives even today for all sorts of reasons. We have a heart to pray with these people and see them set free in Yeshua.
  • Team visits by personal invitation throughout the UK and abroad, preaching “God wants you whole” (the whole gospel) as well as a host of other topics.
  • Ministry preparation courses for those wishing to serve and minister for Jesus Christ and additional courses for those who are established and wish to go further in ministry.
  • A desire to help and support others in leadership or pastoral roles. It can be hard work being a leader and we want to help keep the flame burning!
  • International teaching and resource ministry with an online shop. We stock a large selection of CDs, DVDs and books, including many which are not available in mainstream Christian bookstores.


It has been a joyous homecoming to once again embrace our Jewish Messiah, to take our place as grafted-in members of the commonwealth of Israel, and to celebrate the Moedim, God’s appointed times, the feasts of the Lord as kept by the Jews.

Looking back we can see how the Lord has been paving the way and preparing the ministry for the journey we now find ourselves on. George Daniel, Pastor Marion’s father, was born in South West London. He was brought up with a deep respect for his Jewish neighbours. Just before the war, he moved to Southampton and married Joan. When Marion was born it was a German Jewish Doctor who saved her life as a baby.

When the Lord revealed to us that the church has not replaced the Jews as God’s chosen people, we began to seriously investigate the Hebraic roots of our Christian faith. We discovered how the church had deliberately severed these roots in the 3rd and 4th centuries’ and we came face to face with the shameful history of Christian anti-Semitism. God has given us a deep conviction to return to the roots of our faith so that we can finally return to His master plan.

This transformation has not always been easy. But it has certainly been worth it!



Sozo Ministries International originally began as Mayday Ministries.

Out of her own home, Marion birthed what is now Sozo Ministries International. She preached and ministered from house to house and then started to hold regular Sunday afternoon services at the YWCA in Bellevue Road, Southampton. It was not long before this facility became too small and we began using various other venues in the Test Valley.

Mayday Ministries


Alongside local meetings, the ministry received invitations from further afield which led to ministry trips becoming quite the norm. As we started to minister across Great Britain we took to the road in the first Sozo Minibus.



We held our first ‘Wholeness and Victory’ holidays during the spring and summer at Kingford Hill, Devon. After that, residential conferences continued on for many years at other locations within the United Kingdom.



Mountbatten School, Romsey was our gathering point for many years where we met for larger meetings called ‘Sozo Sundays’. Many people joined us here for pure worship, the Word of God and prayer for healing.



To allow for growth, the ministry soon rented administrative offices in West Wellow, Hampshire. Starting with just two offices, we then progressed into three offices, eventually requiring an additional Portakabin.



The ministry was granted charitable status in 1994. Today, we still pursue an ethical standard as we adhere to the UK Charity Commission’s code of governance and legal requirements.



To consolidate our separate offices into one building and to obtain a sanctuary for some of our meetings, we relocated to ‘Sozo House’ in central Romsey. After first acquiring the left side of the building, we later expanded into the right side which gave us a much needed headquarters for our vision.



The Awbridge Pavilion became our recreational building for many years where we hosted children’s faith schools, summer fun days, family events and more.



God led us to the door of the Dunwood Manor Golf Club in autumn 2012. Although the property needed work to make it home, it was clear this was the place that would accommodate all we want to achieve and do as a ministry.



As a result of people’s faithful and generous giving, we recently opened the doors on the new sanctuary at Dunwood Oaks. We want to fill this place and bring glory to God so why not join us and be a part of what God is doing here!




Marion Daniel is the director and founding pastor of Sozo Ministries International. She is supported by a board of trustees, full time staff, some members of her family and committed volunteer staff along with many others who serve the Lord with their giftings to keep the ministry vision fulfilled.

She became a born-again believer in Jesus in the 1970’s after a marriage break-up and was miraculously healed of spondylosis of the spine. In the early 1980’s she heard the message that “God wants you whole” and felt this was key to her receiving her miracle. She has since taken this message from the Bible to everyone who wants to hear and experience wholeness through Jesus.

That it is inspired by God and

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Should be uncompromised by man,

Jesus is the Son of the Living God (Matthew 16:16). He came to earth about 2,000 years ago as a man, yet at the same time He was fully God. He was born supernaturally to a virgin called Mary (Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:27), and He travelled all over Israel in the power of the Holy Spirit, (Luke 4:14) preaching about God’s kingdom (Mark 1:14-15). He performed many extraordinary miracles (Acts 2:22) like healing the sick (Luke 4:40) and raising the dead (Matthew 11:5). His life was ended when He was put to death on a cross. Astonishingly, He then rose again from the dead three days later (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).



Why does all this matter today? The Bible says that we all have SINS which separate us from God (Romans 3:23). If you have ever lied, stolen something, used God’s name as a curse word, or lusted, you have broken God’s law and that’s called sin (Exodus 20:7, 14-16; Matthew 5:27-28). As a good Judge, God must punish sin. He hates sin because it is totally against His nature (Psalm 5:4). Under God’s law, we all deserve death and eternal separation from Him in Hell because of our sin (Romans 6:23).

But God loved you so much that He sent His Son to be your Saviour so that He could die on a cross as your substitute (John 3:16). Jesus was absolutely without sin (Hebrews 4:15), meaning He could take the place of guilty humankind, endure God’s wrath and satisfy God’s justice (Romans 3:25). Jesus willingly chose to suffer and die in your place (Luke 22:42). As He poured out HIS BLOOD, He took your sin, sickness and shame on Himself (Isaiah 53:4-5).



It didn’t end there! He was in the grave for three days and three nights, but the third day God miraculously raised Him from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). He is now LIVING in Heaven with Father God (Acts 2:33). He promised that He will return to earth to gather those who have put their trust in Him (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) and to judge those who have refused Him (Acts 17:31).

Jesus freely offers forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:14) and a NEW, eternal life (John 3:16) to anyone who will turn away from their sins (Mark 1:15) and place their trust in Him to save them (Romans 10:9-10). This means making Jesus the highest authority in your life and placing your trust in what He has done for you, not trusting in your own efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9). This is the most important decision of your life. The Bible says that now is the time for your salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2). Don’t delay your decision—you may not have tomorrow.


Ready to believe in Jesus?

Why not say this prayer now?

Heavenly Father,

I believe you are Almighty God.

I believe Jesus is the Son of God.

I believe He died on a cross and shed His blood for the forgiveness of my sins.

I believe He rose again from the dead.

I declare I am a sinner and I confess and repent of my sins.

I declare I need a Saviour.

I ask right now by the Spirit of God that I might be born-again and receive the person of the Holy Ghost.

Thank You Father, please come and take first place in my life.

I now receive Jesus Christ into my heart as my Lord and Saviour.
