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 Power of Spontaneous Prayer


Over the past number of months, the folks in my weekly home group have been encouraging one another to listen for the prompting of the Holy Spirit and to step out in prayer for people when the Lord seems to be opening a door. Even though this sounds like a very simple act of obedience, […]

Scriptural Refreshing


Over the many years that I have been reading the scriptures, God’s Word, I have found myself trying a number of different translations, beginning with the J.B. Phillips New Testament translation back in the late 60’s, the Revised Standard Version, the New King James, and then the seminal translation called the New International Version which […]

The Parable of the Seeds


In Mark’s gospel, Jesus spends the first 20 verses of chapter 4 telling the “parable of the sower” or as some prefer to call it, the “parable of the seeds.”  However, as I have read this many many times, the true variable is not the sower of the seeds, it’s the soil upon which the […]

Hope… and the NFL Draft


This past weekend, the annual National Football League College Draft event took place in Nashville, Tennessee.  As several commentators pointed out, the NFL has become almost a year round sport even though they only play 16 official regular season games. This draft event was an indication of how true that observation is. According to tracking […]
