Mission Possible: A Simple Structure for Missional Effectiveness

Meetings are not ministry! Let’s focus on ministry while making meetings fewer in number but larger in meaning. In this book aimed at congregational leaders, particularly United Methodists, the authors provide practical, field-tested steps to simplify your church structure and unleash more people into ministry. Too often churches try to simplify their structures by just having fewer people at the meeting table. But real simplification and accountable leadership means that meetings – and leaders – are transformed. Kay and Blake walk you through both the technical and adaptive changes to simplify your structure for missional effectiveness.

IMPACT! ReCLAIMING the Call of Lay Ministry

"Dr. Bradford and Kay Kotan have written an insightful book challenging the church to reclaim the God-sized IMACT of the partnership between laity and clergy together strengthening the local church for a future with hope. This practical book is full of stories, practical examples, and questions to help ignite a movement where laity are inspired, equipped and mobilized for ministry and IMACT!"
