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.

Unexpected Inspiration


In our journey of faith, rarely a day goes by that each one of us doesn’t need some sort of encouragement to help us maintain our spiritual momentum and Kingdom focus.

The Waiting Years


One of the most common experiences of every sincere person who is seeking to walk faithfully with the Lord is the seemingly universal experience of having to go through a season of “waiting” for the Lord to bring something to pass. One of the more frequent and somewhat naïve observations that people share with me […]

The Power of God’s Promise


One of the great needs of our day is for every one of us to recognize the God given promises that He has made alive in our spirit, whether through scripture, prayer or some specific act of ministry. It’s one thing to say that the idea of the gospel of the kingdom of God is […]

A Grandfather’s Gift


Last evening was one of those rare and unforgettable times when two generations shared a mutual interest and fascination together. My closer friends know that I’ve enjoyed just about all things “automobile” for the last 55 years!  My grandfather sold cars near the end of his working career, and my dad restored 11 relatively rare […]

How Faith Grows


Just last weekend, I had the opportunity to learn something new about the operation of faith in our lives. Following one of the North Way worship services at one of our campuses, a brother in the Lord that I have known for many years asked if he could have a few words with me.  We […]
