National Facilitator, UK & Trustee
Christine has been married to David for over 35 years and loves being a mum to 3 boys, Paul, Marc and Adam and ‘Nana’ to 4 wonderful grandchildren.
Armed with a Bachelor of Divinity from King’s College London and a teaching qualification from Roehampton University, she embarked on a career teaching Religious Studies in a variety of senior schools for some 30 years.
Christine was then “head hunted” to be the Education Liaison Manager for an International Aid Charity. She says that visiting impoverished townships in Africa was, “life changing”.
She eventually left this post to look after her elderly parents who are now “having a party in heaven”.
Alongside her decades of passion for the prophetic ministry, Christine has been pastoring people in various leadership capacities for over 30 years. Her passion for seeing people live whole & free, almost inevitably, led her to the first ever Bethel Sozo Training event in the UK back in 2008. Since then, Christine has thoroughly enjoyed training church teams and mentoring Sozo practitioners across the UK and occasionally internationally. She says that what she loves about Bethel Sozo is, “…the freedom that it facilitates, seeing people more intimately connected to Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit. It is a joy to see people leaving their Sozo session free from the lies that have shut them down and the unhealed wounds that have held them back”.
Teresa Liebscher founded and has led the Shabar Ministry of Bethel Church since 2002. She is now offering training for the Shabar ministry.
Teresa is a leader of the Transformation Center at Bethel, and has been a teacher of the Sozo Ministry since 1997. She has been traveling and teaching Sozo Basic and Sozo Advanced seminars since 1998, and has recently been on the teaching team for Children’s Sozo.
Her passion for connecting the body of Christ to Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit is an ever-increasing love of her life.
Paige Squirrell is based in Norfolk and is joint senior leader of Beacon Church alongside her husband Jonathan.
Above all else, her desire is to see God’s Presence released in the lives of ordinary people bringing them to a place of real freedom.
She has four incredible children and will soon be a grandmother for the first time.
