House Ministries

Sunday School (2nd- 5th grade)

Virginia Derrickson serves as the Director for our children impartation classes on Sunday. "Train up a child in the way he should go. Even when he is old he will not depart from it." - Proverbs 22:6 Our children are our future and we believe we should have a culture to reach them when they are young. God has the given us the supernatural and miracles to show how much he loves us and that our children can learn this while they are young. We can teach them how to have a relationship with God that is significant in their lives so they grow up hearing his voice and being guided by him from the beginning. We can guide them to hear the Holy Spirit, heal the sick, give words of knowledge as well as know God's purpose for their lives. They will know their true identity in God and understand how that influences their future. God has given us all the tools we need chase after him with a child like spirit so lets start with the children and run with them. Our children ministry coordinator is Virginia Derrickson

Encounter Saturday

Encounter Weekend Each month the House of Praise for All People has a weekend dedicated to setting the captives free. During this weekend, we have SOZO ministry for deliverance, healing and salvation, as well as healing rooms where there is prayer for the sick. Coupled with these two excellent ministries, soaking and music on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. through 11:00a.m. Sozo appointments are available at 10:30am and 1:00pm by appointment only. Contact to schedule a Sozo. The worship emphasis will be proclaiming God's freedom to the captive and proclaiming God's healing and deliverance. "The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners." Isa 61:1 Worship Leaders/singers/ instrumentalists: This is an excellent opportunity to worship our God and proclaim His freedom through worship to those needing healing. "And when the evil spirit ...was upon Saul, David took a lyre and played it; so Saul was refreshed and became well, and the evil spirit left him." 1 Samuel 16:23 (Amplified Bible) There is healing power through worship and music. We found this account of healing and deliverance when David played his instrument before Saul. We expect God to move upon his people in worship through healing and deliverance with continuous worship and music throughout this worship time. This is a great time to soak in the presence of God before and after prayer for healing both in the SOZO ministry as well as the healing rooms. Again, this emphasis is on proclaiming freedom to the prisoners and declaring that Freedom Reigns!! on the Delmarva peninsula. "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." Luke 4:18-19 (NIV 2011)

SOZO Ministry: Reformation Center


We believe in life and Life Abundant! You can get the breakthrough you've been looking for. Here at the Delaware Reformation Center we believe that everyone can benefit from a Sozo session. Sozo removes barriers that are keeping you from JOY and the reality that this is an abundant life. Sozo is not a counseling session but a powerful tool for inner healing. The goal is to address and uncover root issues that hinder your personal growth and your relationship with God and others. Every session is unique. God knows best your needs and our goal is to facilitate the next step of your healing journey. We are also a Bethel Basic Sozo Training Center. Lisa Westbrook serves as our church Coordinator for the Reformation Center and is the Regional Facilitator for Bethel Sozo in Delaware. This gives us the opportunity to train people interested in becoming part of Bethel's network of Sozo ministry. You can now attend a Basic Sozo Training at our facility or you can have our training team come to your church to do a weekend of personal Sozo ministry, as well conduct the Basic Training needed to get your people ready to start Sozo ministry. SOZO transforms lives. We're confident you'll walk away changed.

The Encounter: Intercessory Prayer Team


Ann Smith is Director of our intercessory prayer ministry team. This is a team of people that pray both for the leadership and community of believers at The House but pray for the region, nation and international in areas the Holy Spirit is focusing our attention on. This is a great place to set aside some time with your heavenly Father. Your Father wants to spend time with you. He loves to love on His people. Here, let me help you know what I mean... Three easy ways to help you bring God's Kingdom to earth are: 1. Look - use your "faith eyes" to see what your Heavenly Father is doing. 2. Listen - with the "ears" of your heart to what God is saying. 3. Obey - what the Holy Spirit wants you to do. There's still more your Father has for you. He just loves getting you ready for your royal mission!

Pastoral Care Team


Rob & Lisa Westbrook are leaders over a team developed to provide personal care to the members of The House.
