Mission Possible: Structuring Your Church for Missional Effectiveness, Kay Kotan
Does your church have more committee positions to fill than people to fill them? Does your church struggle to make timely decisions aligned with the purpose of your church? Do you have a desire to structure your church in order to be more nimble, relevant, and faithful in reaching new people? If so, you have come to the right place!
Meetings are not ministry! Lets get back to doing ministry and meeting way less. In this book aimed at United Methodists, the author provides practical, field-tested steps and processes to simplify your church structure allowing more people to actually be in ministry. Too often churches simplify their structure by only having fewer people gather at the meeting table. But real simplification and accountable leadership that allows ministry to occur with complicated steps takes adaptive change. Kay walks you through both the technical and adaptive changes to simplify your structure for missional effectiveness.
Changing Your Equation, Roe and Don Polczynski

Worksheets, illustrations and tools at the end of each chapter lead you to a better awareness of how different components in your life affect your situation.

Captured by Vision, George W. Bullard

Do you want to move beyond “good enough” to “exceptional” in meeting the real needs of real people in real time?
Enduring Ministry: Toward a Lifetime of Christian Leadership, Samuel D. Rahberg
For many Christian leaders, the experience of ministry includes enough conflict and disappointment to soon wear off the patina of one’s initial enthusiasm. And yet relief and renewal seems too often out of reach. What happens in this season of ministry is more than a matter of whether or not a Christian leader can persist. It is, in fact, possible for a person to engage the call to maturity at the juncture of discipleship and leadership. Enduring Ministry is designed for those who seek this more durable way forward, one that is infused with grace and inspired by good mission.
In Enduring Ministry, Samuel Rahberg draws on insights from the monastic tradition, the ministry of spiritual direction, and the practice of Christian leadership to support and empower women and men for continued ministries in the church, helping them turn from merely enduring to lasting, effective, and vibrant Christian leadership.

While the timeless message of Jesus Christ does not change, congregations need to change from time to time to reach those who God has called to. Being willing to make those changes means the difference between congregational life or death.
Spiritual Leadership: A Biblical Theology of the Role of the Spirit in the Leadership of God’s People, David Huffstutler
How should we see the Spirit at work in spiritual leaders today? How did the Spirit work through spiritual leaders in the Bible? While many books on spiritual leadership look at the culture around us and offer sound advice from biblical principles, this study asks Scripture first what the Spirit did through spiritual leaders in the Bible in order to figure out what the Spirit should be doing through spiritual leaders today.
