When a “No” Is Really God’s “Yes”

June 24, 2019

A StartNew Church Outreach

Sometimes a “no” here on earth is really a “yes” from God. When Jen began working with her church in Boca Raton, Florida to launch a Bible-based recovery ministry, one of the first people they approached to help lead turned them down.

“That gave us pause to step back,” Jen remembers. “And it so happened that during that time somehow one of the pastors got hooked up with FiveTwo’s Vice President, Oscar Benavides. And I’m so grateful that person said ‘no.’”

Jen and her team members are about a quarter of the way through their 24-month StartNew training process. They are excited to see the fulfillment of their God-given dream when their ministry launches this fall. And FiveTwo will be walking with Revive Boca to help them maximize their organization’s sustainability and impact over the next 18 months.

“There’s this huge community of people who are so hungry to know who God is, and they are not going to go to church,” Jen explains about the new ministry.  “The whole point of Revive Boca is to make that waypoint … where we can meet people where they are and gently open the door to God’s work in their lives.”

Jen and her team are grateful for God’s hand in their StartNew training as they prepare to launch. “I’ve gotten to see through the whole process how involved God is. Doors have opened that I feel like I wouldn’t have even known to knock on had it not been for FiveTwo.”

Something else Jen says her team would have never thought to do is testing. “We’re so glad [FiveTwo] pushed us to do that, because what we found in our testing was really an affirmation that people in Boca are really interested in this kind of recovery ministry.”

Revive Boca’s launch is only a few short months away, but God is still at work in the last-minute details of their StartNew process. “There’s actually people [at FiveTwo] who have done this time and time and time again telling us this is what to do. This is what not to do,” Jen adds. “I just feel very supported.”
