Thank you for visiting my blog. It is an honor to be able to serve you in this way, and I count it a privilege to have the opportunity to share my perspective of what God is doing in our world.

I recently released a new book entitled Seamless Succession. It answers the need for clear thinking and proven Biblical principles that the Church can implement in a season of leadership transition, based on my own succession process at North Way Christian Community. Seamless Succession identifies and discusses seven principles that leaders can follow to dramatically improve the likelihood and longevity of a successful transition. It offers a detailed plan with proven concepts for effective transition planning and implementation, proving that the succession process can be a catalyst for overall growth, furthering the end goal ‘to make disciples of all nations’.

Passavant leadership Group goes far beyond what can be learned in any book to partner with pastors, churches and ministries to help them through the succession process as well as many other leadership and creative issues. With over 135 years of ministry leadership involvement, our staff has a wealth of experience to help churches of any size or denomination.

Abraham Pothen: His Life and Legacy


It was well over 30 years ago that I first met Abraham Pothen.

Recognizing the Kingdom of God


By the grace of God, I find myself in a very humbling and rather amazing season of life.  Yes, I have a few nagging physical limitations and don’t seem to necessarily feel as energetic and fast moving as I once did, but I’m learning that this is how God wants me at the present time. […]

What a Father Needs to Hear


As we come upon Father’s Day 2019, I want to be simple and somewhat straightforward about one of the most important things every father deeply desires to hear. Most dads spend a lot of their waking time at their place of employment or fulfilling their chosen career.  In those environments there is always an expectation; […]

Reflections on D-Day 2019


Over the past week or so, I have watched, listened and read substantially about Operation Overlord and the resultant D-Day battles for the heart and soul of the European continent. This being the 75th anniversary of D-Day means that there are only a very small number of soldiers who participated in that incredible assault on […]

The Power of Spontaneous Prayer


Over the past number of months, the folks in my weekly home group have been encouraging one another to listen for the prompting of the Holy Spirit and to step out in prayer for people when the Lord seems to be opening a door. Even though this sounds like a very simple act of obedience, […]
