Fresh Start is a residential discipleship program, seeking to help single men & married couple’s who are struggling in the battles of the Christian life.
We will seek to address both the surface problems as well as the root cause. We believe at the deepest level, all problems stem from the inherent sinful nature of all mankind resulting from the fall.
You’re at the end of your rope. You’ve got few options left and they are dwindling fast. Maybe you’ve been caught and it’s “Fresh Start or else…”. You need to make some changes, and yesterday wouldn’t be too soon. If this sounds close to you or someone you know, may we ask the question “Why”?
Why do you desire change? Is it simply because there are no other options, or because you can no longer deal with the consequences of a life out of control? While they can sometimes motivate the initial steps toward freedom, true and lasting change needs to come from much deeper motivating factors.
Godly repentance, sorrow over sin, humility, faith, and obedience in God are essentials to finding change that lasts. Maybe you desire to make these qualities a part of your life, but you don’t know how. If you are willing to humble yourself, seek God’s face, and turn every area of your life over to him, we’re here to walk with you on this incredibly difficult but worthwhile and rewarding journey to living the life of purpose God has for you.
Fresh Start is designed for men, both single and married. Their reasons for coming vary. It should be noted that while some of the men entering the program have prior psychological diagnosis, Fresh Start is a Christian discipleship program rather than a mental institution.
Here are some of the reasons men come to Fresh Start:
We will seek to address both the surface problem as well as the root cause. We believe at the deepest level, all problems stem from the inherent sinful nature of all mankind resulting from the fall. As a result, we will at times clearly confront sinful tendencies even while we hurt with you and help you begin the process of forgiveness and restoration of relationships.
Fresh Start is a long-term residential Christian discipleship program for men (single or married) designed to do two primary things:
Any single man, married couple who desires to grow in their walk with Christ.
Any man entering the program must be at least 18 years of age.
Yes, we provide counseling and classes for both the married man and his wife.
Allow us to ask you a question. How long is life? Greater yet how long is eternity? With this perspective, Fresh Start’s program is 8 months long, split into two, four month semesters. That allows us to start a new group every four months. It’s really not that long in perspective to life itself. Remember God’s program never ends.
We have a suggested donation of $1,500/month.
We do not bill, and no records will be kept on what is paid in. The difference is offset with the shop sales and donations from churches, businesses, and individuals.
We offer help regardless of financial ability to pay for services provided.
The waiting list can vary from 6 months to 2 years out.
Please contact our office at 812-254-3399 for a more precise estimate. Again, the wait time is an approximation; actual wait times will likely vary somewhat from what you are told, due in to the varied length of stay and/or early dismissals.
