SOZO REGIONAL FACILITATORS
Regional Facilitator for Prison Sozo Ministries
California, Susanville, CA
Since 1998, Len Santos has been actively involved with the Bethel Sozo ministry. He has traveled internationally and nationally with Bethel Sozo Training teams. Len Santos began his career in the California Department of Corrections in 1971 at San Quentin. Transferring around the state in different correction inmate camps, he and his wife were invited to church and were born again in 1980. The Lord put an immediate supernatural call on Len’s life and he hungered and sought after the living Word. After the last transfer in 1983, to Susanville CA, Len began teaching Bible studies to both inmates and staff. He retired in December 31, 1999 as a Correctional Sergeant. He returned to the prison as an interim protestant Prison Chaplain receiving his first ordination from Foursquare International. He recently received his pastoral license through The River International Network in Roseville CA.
Len and Phyllis were married in 1969, have two beautiful and gifted daughters, wonderful sons-in-law and for the present, 3 awesome grandchildren!
Len brought Bethel Sozo into California Correctional Center, a prison, setting the captives free. He ministers one on one and has trained and developed other Sozo team members to minister in this unique setting. He has also trained and developed inmate Bethel Sozo teams, to minister to fellow inmates. He is available to teach Bethel Sozo ministry to the churches around the world that have a heart of the inmates of prisons.
Len and Phyllis started a weekly prison chapel service in 2001. The inmates named it “Thursday Night Live”. “Our focus is to change lives and hearts through salvation, healing and deliverance, by loving unconditionally and making sure Jesus Christ becomes Lord of their life. Our desire is that the incarcerated do not return to prison, and that they maintain their freedom as followers of Christ.”
