Keith has known Dallas for more than 30 years as a friend, student, mentee, colleague, co-participant in writing groups & think tanks as well as speaking at conferences. As a young aspiring Pastor, hearing Dallas proclaim and seeing him embody the Gospel of the Kingdom about Jesus captured Keith’s heart and imagination and propelled him away from merely pursuing church growth to becoming and making maturing disciples of Jesus. Keith found that we ourselves are “the change” the world is waiting to see and “the program” our churches need. The lessons learned from Dallas would save his marriage and family life, and gave him specific outcomes for how the church can make a difference in the world, whether Quaker or Anglican, Southern Baptist or Independent.
