Fresh Start uses new styles of teaching that cross generational boundaries utilizing video, audio, and visual aids. The training provides knowledge on how to better communicate with people of all generations to build new and lasting relationships as well as deepen existing ones. Not only will it enhance the communication skills of the student, but it will also provide integral components of training such as life skills, communication skills, etiquette training, etc. Consequently, Fresh Start prepares the incarcerated student for reentry into society and, in some cases, for a lifetime of incarceration.
The Fresh Start Curriculum is designed to be integrated into existing discipleship models or programs. Optionally, it can be used inclusively as a stand-alone.
Fresh Start is comprised of our six hour Share Your Faith (SYF) workshop (www.syfonline.org), our seven week Every Day Evangelism study (Ev2) and our seven week Mentoring For Multiplication study (M4M) (https://store.evangelismexplosion.org/)
SYF, Ev2 and M4M are also taught in the local church. In the prison setting, the student is taught how the studies are utilized in the local church (in anticipation of potential re-entry) as well as how to use it's components while incarcerated.
