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.

“It’s Not a Formula…”


Hardly a day goes by without my having a conversation with someone who has been “waiting on the Lord” for some sort of answer to prayer, guidance or provision.

Life’s Greatest Mystery


Just about three weeks ago I found myself lamenting the loss of one of my college fraternity brothers who passed on after a rather lengthy battle with cancer.  The friend with whom I was talking was also in the same fraternity and was undoubtedly one of my closest relationships during those four very formational years […]

Seeing the Significance


One of the most common short comings that cause many of us to stumble in our spiritual journey is to miss the significance of certain events in our lives.  In an age when we are bombarded with so many reports from so many different sources, we sometimes fail to register when an event in our […]

When the Answer is “No”


There’s little question that everyone of us face situations from time to time where we believe that God is leading us in a certain way but when we move in that direction, the doors close, and it seems that we must have missed the leading of God. Over the past number of months I’ve been […]

Prepared for the Spontaneous


One of the more frequent conversations that I have with sincere believers, and especially those who are seeking to serve God on a day to day basis is around the issue of ‘how do I initiate those connections’? Although I’m very much a proponent of living life on purpose and planning our daily lives in […]
