Soorin is intensely passionate about seeing the captives and the prisoners set free. Isaiah 61 has become a personal mandate from The Lord. Her calling in life is to reveal the heart of The Father who loves with such fierce passion His goodness can never be overestimated. Having personally experienced the freedom and the love of Jesus Christ, she utilizes her education, her years of serving in ministry, and her own personal testimony to dismantle the lies of the enemy to establish each person’s true identity in Christ. While much of her ministry is personal in nature, corporate healing of the Body of Christ has become her main focus.
Words most commonly used to describe her teaching style are Spirit-filled, intense, passionate, dynamic, revelatory and transformational. Her prophetic insights and words over individuals and churches have led to lives being transformed and communities restored. Her prophetic ministry is increasingly marked with signs, wonders, and miracles. Her listeners are challenged to surrender to Holy Spirit and live a genuine life of intimacy with God.
