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.

How far will this go…?


For the past couple of days, I’ve been contemplating what my response should be to the most explicit and possibly horrifying description of what some influential pro-choice Americans believe about abortion.  By the time many of you read this post you will have very likely seen or heard clips of a recent exchange in the […]

Competing Affections


If there’s one challenge that most every person would acknowledge in their walk of faith it’s the ability to slow down enough to take their eyes off of other things and to concentrate their thoughts, emotions and affections on the Lord Himself. For most of us, our daily responsibilities are more than enough to fill […]

Don’t Get Distracted


Early in the New Year many of us have already recognized that some of our best intentions are going to be resisted by a wide variety of circumstances, dilemmas and distractions. In reading the Gospel accounts of the “training ground” of the disciples, it’s clear that they did not learn the lessons that Jesus was […]

Unforeseen Blessings


2019 marks the beginning of the 38th year since North Way Christian Community was established in a few homes and eventually a small restaurant in the North Hills. Perhaps one of the most profound memories of those first days for me highlights the unforeseen blessings of our difficult steps of obedience. For nearly 18 months […]

Walking Together as Dads


Any time a family with mature adult children who have children of their own comes together, the circumstance becomes an opportunity for significant growth. One thing that I have lamented when I look back over previous Christmas/New Year family gatherings was the very obvious lack of a time of honest sharing and focused listening with […]
