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.

Warning Lights


Just a couple weeks ago, I was headed out for a relatively short ride when an unexpected “warning light” came on on my dashboard.  When I had a chance to look a little more carefully at what the light indicated I realized that I had neglected to check one of the important fluids in my […]

Looking Up


Doubtless, most all of you have either watched, listened or read about the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing and its incredible impact on not just our nation, but the world. What is very difficult to capture in all of the detailed documentaries, written remembrances and even personal interviews is just how captivated our nation, and to […]

Abraham Pothen: His Life and Legacy


It was well over 30 years ago that I first met Abraham Pothen. It was following a worship service at North Way Christian Community in Wexford that I noticed our Missions Director moving toward the platform in the front of the worship center with a couple that I did not recognize who appeared to be […]

Recognizing the Kingdom of God


By the grace of God, I find myself in a very humbling and rather amazing season of life.  Yes, I have a few nagging physical limitations and don’t seem to necessarily feel as energetic and fast moving as I once did, but I’m learning that this is how God wants me at the present time. […]
