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.

Giving Thanks For You


Over the past several weeks in our home group, we’ve been studying in the book of Ephesians.  Even though we had initially planned to study this amazing book for 12 weeks, it’s become very clear that we would just skim the surface of the depths of the truth that the Apostle Paul  reveals if we kept […]

Living the Good Life


Most of America was shocked yet again when another senseless, inexplicable mass murder took place in our nation.  This time it was where the shooting occurred that touched many of us, almost as much as the tragic loss of life. I’ve heard some spiritual leaders say that “every place we go should be safe” so […]

The Reformation… 500th Anniversary!


It’s widely believed that October 31st, 1517, was the day that Martin Luther, an Augustinian Monk who was a teacher at a university in Wittenberg, Saxony (North Germany) nailed his 95 thesis on the front door of the university. Luther’s act was simply the result of years of studying the growing practices of “selling indulgences” […]

What People Want To Know


This past weekend we received the unexpected and difficult news that my brother’s wife’s mother had passed away rather unexpectedly.  Although Leona had been ill for quite some time, her body gave way rather suddenly even though she was in a major hospital receiving treatments for a disease she had been battling for quite a […]

Created for Community


One may not see the warning signs, but they are literally all around us.  Despite the explosion of technology, and in particular, social media over the pasts ten years, Americans are increasingly isolated. In fact, in a recent PBS story, a research project confirmed that people who spend two or more hours a day on […]

“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. From the time that Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 25th and meandered around the Gulf Coast for nearly a week, to the most recent outbreak of devastatingly destructive wildfires in Northern […]
