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.

The Mystery of Faith


Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had several conversations with friends and partners in the ministry about the mystery of faith.

As We Search For Answers


To say that a journey of faith in Christ eliminates the mysteries, doubts and questions regarding how the Lord works in our lives, would be terribly misleading. Honest people of faith, Christ followers, are still compelled to wrestle with some degree of uncertainty in many areas of their lives.  Having a relationship with God through […]

You Can Do It!


One of my favorite gospel stories is found in the book of Matthew, chapter 14, verses 22-36. (It’s also in Mark and John’s gospels).  It’s the simple yet incredibly powerful story of when the small boat full of disciples was seeking to make its way across the Sea of Galilee when a substantial storm arose, […]

Learning To Listen


We’ve all heard from a myriad of sources that “listening to yourself” is an important step in well being. Having been genetically hardwired to be a type A personality who is used to going at a rather feverish pace on most days and becoming accustomed to 16 or more hours of structured time, this lesson […]

Maintaining Hope


Perhaps it’s just an unusual season in my life, but I tend to hear similar kinds of comments from others with whom I am very close.  So many people share with me the rather steady and sometimes overwhelming series of challenges that just living an “everyday life” seems to bring. For starters, when an opportunity […]

Inauguration Day


Though the words of today’s post may be brief, they represent some long held sentiment that dates back to the days when I was privileged to serve as an officer in the United States Marine Corp.  The events of Inauguration Day are still taking place, but the transfer of power is complete. No one could […]
