In Gear Up!, Kay Kotan outlines nine areas of ministry where
congregations must intentionally design a process. It is not enough to
decide, “We are going to refocus in this direction.” Leaders must decide
how and what steps they will take. Who will do what, and when? This
concise and exceedingly practical new book can help.

“Kay Kotan
has long enjoyed a well-deserved reputation among both laity and clergy
as a passionate, positive change agent. In her new book, readers will
find a rich synthesis of her time-tested insights and hands-on work with
local churches of all sizes and circumstances. If your church has
slipped into reverse or is stuck in neutral, Gear Up! can help get it
driving forward!” —Jim Ozier, Director of New Church Development, North
Texas Conference, UMC; author of Clip In and The Changeover Zone from
Abingdon Press

“This

systems lead to healthy churches. Gear Up! is a systems manual to help
our churches be healthy so that we can fulfill our mission of making
