About Us

The Bethel Austin Transformation Center (BATC) is comprised of several ministries that provide counseling and inner healing to our church community. Sozo, individual, marriage, and family counseling is available from seasoned pastoral counselors.

Inner Healing // Sozo

SOZO is a biblical Greek word translated as saved, healed, or delivered. Sozo ministry is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry aimed at getting to the root of things hindering a person’s relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. With a healed connection to the Trinity, the person can better understand their identity and the purposes to which they have been called.

Pastoral Counseling

Our pastoral counselors offer individual, marriage and family counseling to help people and families with their personal or spiritual growth.


PLEASE NOTE: The Transformation Center is currently only available to those who consider Bethel Austin their home church.

Fee Schedule

In order to support, build, and provide on-going training for our team members, a fee of $35.00 per visit is required for pastoral counseling and a fee of $50.00 per Sozo session.  Click on the appropriate button to pay for your session in advance. One-time assistance may be available if these fees create an unnecessary hardship.

Though the BATC team is eager to help everyone in need, we want to encourage all Bethel Church Austin members to seek counsel from their immediate leaders before contacting the Center. If you are participating in one of our ministries, your leaders are a tremendous resource for you to utilize! You may find that the guidance you are seeking is readily available from the ministers covering your particular ministry.  Likewise, if you are in a Life Group or some other small group setting, we recommend your first step be to utilize the wisdom and guidance of your group leaders.

Either way, the BATC team stands ready to assist you in your walk toward freedom in Christ Jesus!

Our 11 yr old daughter had an ankle injury that prevented her from participating in her dance class last week. On Saturday night, at church, her friends prayed for her. She felt the pain radiate up to her knee, and then it DISAPPEARED! She is HEALED and ready for dance class today!!!


Just wanted to say I was listening ‘randomly’ to your podcasts whilst journeying up through Scotland towards The Highlands.... I felt Wisdom speaking through you, and The Father planting fresh seeds in my heart of His goodness and His good plans for me.

Thank you for the beauty of your DNA and your hearts. Both of which have impacted me.
