God has got more for you! Take a look at the very first church in the book of Acts and you will see that He has got so much more for all of us! Early believers didn’t just turn cities upside down, they turned the whole world upside down (Acts 17:6).
Are you hungry for more? At Sozo Ministries International, we have an earnest desire for all of God’s people to know His power and presence again. We long for His people to break out of the norm and give up on a life of compromise once and for all. We want to see you thrive in your Christian walk and reach your full potential.
It’s our hope that through this course, you will come to know the reality of having a real relationship with the living God, that you will be more established in the Word and that you will be ready to start living as a mighty man or woman of faith.
“In my early years, I attended a church for 10 years but saw no power in my life. So now I am passionate to give people on this evening course what I so longed for but never ever found—a foundation. You need to lay a foundation from the Word of God in your Christian walk before you can go anywhere for God to make your mark for Him. So, don’t wander around aimlessly like I did from church to church. Come and do it all under one roof. This year, we celebrate serving the Lord for 35 years at Sozo Ministries International and we’d love to join you as you go on with God in a new and greater way. Applications open now!”
“I’m so blessed to have known Jesus since I was born! I’ve grown up at Sozo and I’ve come to realise the huge importance of laying a foundation in God’s Word, believing what He says and turning it all into action. It’s never too early or too late to pursue God. There’s no better time than right now! I believe He’s got lots in store for those who diligently seek Him and this evening course is a great way to dig deeper. Hope to see you there!”
Every meeting will be streamed live online. So if you’re not local to Dunwood Oaks, you can still watch the video sessions on any device no matter where you are. Sign up for online learning and you will receive access to the course manual and 21 video lessons.
This totally Biblical course is delivered through evening seminars which run once or twice a week for three months. Every session covers a key foundational topic enabling you to build your understanding as you progress through the course manual.
Course units include teaching on:
Knowing God intimately
Essential doctrine of the Christian faith
How to study the Bible

“I wanted to get closer to God. If you’re a Christian or a church-goer, this course is a must. In the three months, it’s taught me such a lot. I’ve come to know God in a real, personal way. I thought I knew Him in a personal way before but now I’m so much more intimate with Him. The teaching has been so, so powerful. If you immerse yourself in the course, you cannot come away without being different. It will change your life immensely.”
“Since doing the course, I feel more comfortable to make decisions and I feel more confident in trusting God. I would definitely encourage anyone to do it because you learn so much. Not only about the Word, but also about yourself. The Word has become flesh and now dwells in me.”
“I did the course because I wanted to go deeper with the Lord. Definitely go for this, obviously spend some time in prayer about it, but I would definitely say go for it if you’ve got the chance.”
“I felt there was something missing in my life and I needed the foundations to be put in place. This course is 100% worth it. Every meeting has its little bits that make it special. If you don’t have the foundations of Christianity in your heart, you might already have them in your head, but if you don’t have them in your heart then I’d suggest you come and do the course.”
“The course has a mixed variety of people and everyone’s unique, but we were all good friends by the end! It’s amazing! Take time out and just spend as much time as you can here.”
“Definitely do it if you want a lot of information and enlightenment. The teaching is great but also all the fellowship that we’ve had.”
Are you ready for God to do something new in your life? Do you need to get out of the stagnant pool and step into rivers of living water? Do you need to leave the wilderness behind and start a fresh season of bearing more fruit? If you’re ready to step forward in faith, then join us at Dunwood Oaks to get strengthened in the Word and enjoy living a new, exciting life set-apart with Almighty God.
This is perhaps the most important question! You have a unique opportunity to come and join us so that you can better understand the whole message of the Gospel. We are an organisation with thirty-five years of experience in Christian ministry and we offer a large amount of teaching on what it means to be saved, healed and made whole. Our evening course draws on these years of experience and incorporates the Biblical teaching that has seen many captives get set free. Come and learn how to develop your relationship with Father God, learn how to walk in the full counsel of the Bible, and learn how to fulfil the great commission of Jesus.
A training programme
Over a period of 3 months, you will receive important teaching on topics like: knowing God intimately, essential doctrine, the whole message of the Gospel, how to study the Bible, how to take authority, Biblical worship and much more. All teaching is life applicable and will help you in your daily walk so that no matter what comes your way, you have a foundation to stand on.
A variety of speakers will join us on the course to share from God’s Word. On certain evenings they will bring clear, anointed messages which expand on key teachings.
Occasionally, there may also be opportunities to develop your learning through self-study worksheets.
Evening seminars – a series of teaching sessions founded on the Word of God will impart the majority of course information. Evening seminars cover important units and follow a progressive framework through the term. You will learn as a group as you sit at desks together. These evening seminars are a great way to meet like-minded people in safe, Christian surroundings. Group discussion, case studies and some recommended reading may also be used.
Meetings and conferences – as part of this programme, you can also join us at our meetings and conferences to receive additional teaching and fellowship. You can stay up-to-date with all our events on sozo.org or speak to us if you would like more information about a particular event.
Top-up meetings – during the course, we will also be holding two Sunday top-up meetings which complement the course’s teaching. Top-up meetings will build on what you are learning so we highly recommend that you attend these in order to make the most of your time with us.
Anyone! Young or old. We are happy to welcome you whether you have just accepted Jesus or if you’ve been a Christian for a long time. The evening course brings all the teaching together that many would usually collect in bits and pieces over their whole lives. So if you are looking for a course which covers fundamental teaching in a structured way, then this could be the course for you. Take a look at the feedback from people who joined us last year to see how life-changing it can be.
We are aware that many churches attempt to mix the Word of God with psychology. But we believe that our Father has already given us everything we need for today in the Bible (2 Tim 3:16-17). We draw all teaching content from the Word and we do not incorporate any form of psychology.
You will qualify in this course by displaying full, committed attendance, interaction and involvement so there is no exam or assessment.
Optional homework – these pieces of work are not graded but are instead designed to assist you in your learning.
Note-taking is entirely optional. The learning environment is relaxed and places no pressure on you to take notes. You will receive a training manual on the first evening. This manual contains all key scriptures for your reference and it has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible.
Besides the Biblical training, the discipleship, the fellowship and all the other amazing benefits that come from joining this course, you’ll also be awarded with a certificate of completion at one of our Fellowship meetings. Additionally, you’ll benefit from the ongoing support of our ministry.
