SOZO reports to a nine-member board of directors, most of whom are elders and deacons with the Village Church of Christ. This symbiotic relationship between the church and SOZO has added a great deal to the spirituality of our campus and our program. In the past four years over 250 SOZO residents have chosen of their own free will to become baptized as part of their recovery experience at SOZO.
