Our strategy

Heal Hearts

We exist to see every heart free from the effects of offense, hurt, and loss. We help people all over the world process the issues of their hearts in person, online, or through a group. There’s hope for every heart.  You can resolve your past, thrive in the present, and have hope for your future. 

Equip Others

After experiencing a fresh start for your heart, our desire is to see you become all that God has created you to be. Through Fresh Start resources, including ongoing training, instructional videos, and our media library, you can be free and stay free.

Transform Nations

Each year, our teams travel to other countries to spread hope for every heart around the globe. Our resources have impacted more than 50 nations and are translated into 20 different languages. We believe this is only the beginning.

About the Founders

The Fresh Start ministry was planted in the hearts of the late Pastor Steve Peterson and his wife Mindy, long before it became an official ministry. Birthed out of a personal crisis, Steve and Mindy found themselves at rock bottom in their early years of marriage. But God had other plans in mind. Through the forgiving and saving power of Jesus Christ, they received a fresh start for their hearts and marriage. Their hearts were finally free to be who they were created to be!
Fresh Start continues to grow, expand, and impact lives through meaningful resources and relationships all over the world.
Prior to launching Fresh Start, Pastor Steve and Mindy served with Trinity Church Interdenominational in Omaha, Nebraska for more than 25 years - investing in the hearts of men, women, marriages, families and youth.
