As a Fresh Start Board and Staff, we are excited about the potentials of the HEART Program. Here are the details…

Heart Evangelism And Relationship Training Program.  Quite simply, it’s an 18 month training and mentoring program  for our staff,  which enables enrollees to more adequately minister to others.  It includes both an initial intensive training period prior to mentoring others, as well as ongoing training and mentoring throughout the duration of the program.  We will explain details further on the following pages. We recommend the training for singles or married couples, for those who are (or are becoming) lay counselors, ministers, missionaries (future, returning, or furloughed), or mentors in home congregations.
