Breakout Session

Protection from Rejection

Raise your hand if you have a fear of rejection in ministry? Before we realize it we can quickly slide into living a life where we are constantly trying to protect our hearts and lives from rejection. As an author and speaker are you afraid of the no’s? The fear of no’s can keep us from moving forward with our yes to God. What if a publisher says no? What if that speaking engagement doesn’t accept my proposal? What if I get a bad review? Is this fear of rejection paralyzing you? In this workshop participants will

  • Look at Biblical characters who had a fear of rejection and how God helped them move forward in faith in their calling by God-- instead of being stuck between fear of success and fear of failure
  • Provide action steps to help participant examine how they may be stuck in areas of ministry due to fear of rejection as they move forward in their calling
  • What do you do when you get the no’s? Participants will be encouraged to find courage when they experience no’s, seeing how God is still moving in their story.
