Beginning Experience of Rochester & SE Minnesota

“When my husband left, I thought the good times in life were over. But the best was yet to be, and it started with Beginning Experience.”
"The program was life-changing. I could share the pain of my wife’s death, and people understood.”
-- MIKE S. 

About Us

The Beginning Experience is an international ministry, which helps divorced, separated, and widowed individuals resolve their grief surrounding the loss of a marriage partner.

Beginning Experience Vision


A hurting people, healed, transformed, and free again to love themselves, others, and God.


The purpose of the Beginning Experience ministry is to facilitate the grief resolution process for adults and children who have suffered a loss through death, divorce or separation, thereby enabling them to again love themselves, others and God.


We accomplish the purpose by offering quality, copyrighted, grief resolution programs presented by trained peer ministers.  These programs are designed to move grieving people through a transformational process to a new beginning in their lives.


We believe that through resolving the grief of a significant loss, individuals participate in the death and resurrection of Christ as he lives in the world today; that those working through this experience can effectively walk with others for whom the experience is new and hard; and that the invitation to recover offers an opportunity for transforming one’s life, and for freeing individuals to love self, others and God in new and deeper ways.
