Developed by respected professionals in grief psychology, ministry, education and organizational process, the program is both psychologically and spiritually sound. The ministry has been honored by the North American Conference of Separated and Divorced Catholics and the National Association of Catholic Family Life Ministers, participated in the International Conference for the World Federation for Mental Health in Ireland, and addressed the Australian government’s Year of Family Congress.

To ensure the integrity of the copyrighted program, the Beginning Experience International Ministry Center, periodically certifies 120 peer ministry teams worldwide to present the program. Today, 117 certified teams of peer ministers present the program in communities on three continents.
