"Lessons Learned in Obscurity" is a journey of one church and the pastor who learned the hard way how to develop a unique and healthy fellowship in today's culture. It is a candid look at the things that worked and those that failed. It will be a handy guide to anyone who is more concerned with being a part of a Christian environment that is more relevant than religious. This book should be required reading for those who are not afraid of "coloring outside the lines" and want to be more effective in reaching a world that is increasingly less interested in traditional church. Ken Duggan is senior pastor of Dallas Bay Baptist Church in Hixson, Tennessee. While leading the church since 1990 the fellowship has grown from the original 8 members to nearly 2,300 today. Ken, and his wife Marilyn, are natives of Tennessee and were approved as church planters for the Southern Baptist Convention. Ken has a bachelors' degree in political science from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and spent several years in a secular career before entering seminary and earning his Doctorate of Theology. He is also the writer of "Out of the Box" a weekly web log which looks at life from a creative Christian's perspective at www.kenduggan.net.
