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.

Created for Community

“I Will Not Be Shaken”


The past six weeks have provided a number of significant events that have affected millions directly, and pretty much the entire nation indirectly.

Our Moral Foundation


Over the past couple of days, Americans everywhere have been struggling to explain how one man, who apparently acted alone, could be so consumed by evil thoughts that he would intentionally kill 59 innocent people and would innjure 500 more in the largest and most grievous killing in American history. It would be a mistake […]

Blessing Others


As we walk in the Kingdom of God, we face two kinds of challenges.  The first and often the most challenging have to do with our own lives.  There is absolutely nothing inappropriate about bringing your needs to God as the first priority of prayer. However, the other challenges have to do with people that God […]

Strengthening Ourselves


In many of our lives today, we encounter obstacles, challenges and difficulties that may seem too personal to share with others or perhaps too chronic to continue to seek prayer or ministry. King David was facing such a situation in 1 Samuel 30 when he returned from battle to find that his hometown had been […]

So This Is Love


About ten days ago as I was preaching at the 11 a.m. service at our Wexford campus, at a particular place on the time line of my message I read John 17:20-23.  (I had read these same verses in the previous two services that weekend.) However, in this final gathering, my mind and then my […]
