Fresh Start Ministries is a Christ-centered substance abuse and recovery ministry, that believes that the answer to a life free from addiction lies in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Fresh Start Outreach Ministries, Inc. was founded in 2001 with a vision to reach those people hurting from drug and alcohol addiction and give them a “Fresh Start” on a new life. We are called to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to them which are bound.
Over the last several years we have seen many men transformed by the power of God who are now actively involved in the ministry of the local church. God is raising up a generation of radically-changed people who are carrying a message of freedom to those suffering from drug and alcohol abuse.
Drug and alcohol addiction tug at the very fiber of communities and account for more crime than any other cause. Yet the drugs, without question, are symptomatic of a deeper problem. We believe the answer lies in a faith-based program that promotes a relationship with God as the foundation for recovery. Numerous studies indicate that faith-based recovery programs are working all over the country, some having success rates as high as 80%. The body of Christ is uniting to make communities better places to live by helping the addict recover permanently. Chains are being broken and people are beginning to experience the abundant life Christ has to offer.
