Mission Possible: A Simple Structure for Missional Effectiveness
Kay Kotan and Blake Bradford doubled the content of their best-selling resource for local churches to better assist congregations seeking to use the simplified accountable leadership structure, often called the one-board model.
In Mission Possible, Kay and Blake focus on ministry while making meetings fewer in number but larger in mean- ing. In this book aimed at congregational leaders, particular- ly United Methodists, the authors provide practical, eld-test- ed 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.
