Simplified, Accountable Structure (SAS)

Simplified, Accountable structure (previously referred to as the single board model, minimum structure, or one board model) moves churches from four administrative committees (trustees, finance, staff-parish relations, and church council) to one Leadership Board encapsulating all responsibilities and authority of the previous four separate administrative committees in compliance with the UMC Book of Discipline in Paragraph 247.2.  Over the past dozen or so years, this model of leadership has evolved as more and more congregations have moved to this structure and learned how to incorporate the much needed accountable leadership.  Kay Kotan and her co-author Blake Bradford have helped thousands of leaders and hundreds of congregations across the country shift into this model through training, consulting, SAS Coach Certification, and their best-selling resource guide, Mission Possible
