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.

Pass It On


Along with the incredible blessing that children are to a family, they also come into the world full of potential and promise that parents and grandparents are responsible to cultivate. As parents, that responsibility is constantly on your mind as your children grow up in plain sight nearly each and every day of their formative […]

A Man of Sorrows


Hardly a week goes by without someone notifying me that a member of our church, a friend from another congregation or ministry or a family member, whether personal or otherwise related, has come into a very difficult time. As much as we would all like to think that being in Christ somehow insulates us from […]

Three Simple Phrases – Part 2


In my last post, I detailed three simple phrases that I shared with the young couple in my message to them on their wedding day.  These phrases were “Thank you,” “forgive me” and “I will.”  Quite a number of you responded that you, too, had discovered the power of these simple expressions when sustained by […]

Three simple phrases


One of the temptations that most pastors need to avoid is that of “over-complicating” matters of faith. The Apostle Paul spoke directly to this when he said in 1 Corinthians 2:4 “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith […]
