Where God is Changing Lives

Project New Start (PNS) is a 501 (3) © non-profit corporation that is based on the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 25, which tell us to “clothe the naked, feed the hungry, take in the stranger and visit those who are sick and in prison”. We focus on being a “Place of Recovery Where God is Changing Lives.”  Our ministry began by reaching out to the drug addicted as well as feeding many who are hungry.  As Christians, we are “God’s Hands and Feet here on earth”. Our mission here is to reach out to all men, women, and children and help them reach their full potential through Jesus Christ. Our Savior has always blessed and allowed our ministries to flourish through the years. Since 2003, we have expanded to the following ministries:
