    Currently reading this book. Very interesting. Great quote -- "The church is like Noah's ark; it stinks, but if you get out, you'll drown."

    The author is pastor of Church Under the Bridge, which meets under the interstate overpass.

    That is a great quote! I'm going to share it with some people.

    Doesn't really address that too much, but a lot of the ideas would carry over to a church start -- would actually be easier.

    You might want to check out his church's web site --- www.churchunderthebridge.org. Technically, it's non-denominational, but I think it is Baptist in nature.
