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 Way of Wisdom


I’ve been giving a lot of thought recently to how we approach a life of wisdom.  If there’s one thing that’s true about all of us, we either live by default… or by design.  If we don’t choose to walk in the ways of the Lord, our lives simply drift off into the shoals of […]

Every Day Disciples


One of the questions that I seem to wrestle with more than most any other has to do with the essence of being a disciple of Jesus.  It’s one thing to say that we “believe in Jesus,” and by that we’re referring to His divinity, incarnation and sacrifice for our sins as affirmed by His […]

Our Purpose… For Today


Many years ago, just after I had completed my seminary training, I came across a little book entitled “Destined For the Throne.”  The author was a man of high integrity, but of very low profile.  In fact, this was the first book that he published and I believe he was near 75 years of age […]

Recalculating the Target


For most of us, we live our natural lives, our physical lives, with the general knowledge that our “best years” are  somewhere north of the middle of our existence.  Perhaps you have seen it as the time after your children have left home and started their own life journeys, but you’re healthy enough and financially […]

The Allure of Transformation


If there’s one observation that I believe most all of us would affirm it is that change does not come easily for any of us.  Candidly, I’m speaking about all kinds of change from what we eat to how we sleep, how we respond under pressure to how we spend our free time. When we […]

“It Ends In Zero”


Just a few days ago, I was finishing a bike ride in North Park and entered into a brief conversation with a pastor friend that I’ve known for quite some time.  When he asked me if anything “big” was going on in my life, I had to mention the fact that in just a few […]
