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.

Together In The Storm


Last evening, our North Way home group experienced our first “virtual meeting” as 13 of us gathered together around our computer screens and shared what the Lord seems to be speaking to and doing through each one of us. It may a bit difficult to understand, but somewhere along the way what was a bit awkward and […]

My Master Passion


Over the past weeks, I have been giving much thought to this one question — what is the one thing about which I am most passionate? Like everyone else, I have many interests, many sources of discovery, enjoyment and fulfillment!  But this very unique time of “social distancing,” or in it’s true sense “voluntary isolation,” […]

Fear vs Faithfulness


No doubt about it, the message that we are now receiving from our national leadership professionals in medicine, economics and politics is that the coronavirus will have a profoundly more widespread impact than perhaps originally perceived. As more and more measures are taken to limit the potential for contact with infected people (social distancing), it […]

A Word of Encouragement Part 4


In the last three posts, we talked about the need for encouragement, that is God’s comfort, strength and hope in the course of our daily lives.  No one is immune from the overwhelming circumstances and challenges that we face in our daily lives.  Some manage better than others, but all of us, at one time […]

A Word of Encouragement Part 3


There are many times in our spiritual journey when we need encouragement but we find ourselves either unable to reach out to others or simply in a time of being alone.  As uplifting and strengthening as words from others may be, there are times when you have nowhere else to go but God yourself. Of […]
