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.

Our Spiritual Blessing


A couple of nights ago, our small group gathered together as is our weekly custom, to study God’s Word and share our spiritual journeys over the past week.  There was a certain element of anticipation as we anticipated that most everyone in the group would be in attendance. Over the past 35 years, I have […]

Stepping Out in the New Year


For many, this is the week that we begin to act on the inner sense that some things need to change in our lives.  The whole idea of New Year’s resolutions is that a new year provides a base line for starting some new disciplines, practices or commitments that will somehow improve the quality of […]

When God Speaks…


In these final two weeks before Christmas, I want to bring our attention to a perspective on Christmas that is often overlooked or just simply misunderstood.  If we go all the way back to the first chapter of the first book of the Bible, Genesis 1, we soon discover that God brought everything that we […]

Football and Faith


In case you’re not a fan of the National Football League, you may have missed a very frightening and revealing moment in the Monday night game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals. In the ninth play of the game, Steelers inside linebacker Ryan Shazier made what appeared to be a fairly routine tackle […]

Preparing For A New Harvest


Last evening, I attended the final “core team leaders meeting” at the soon to be launched Beaver Valley Campus of North Way Christian Community. I can’t begin to express how meaningful this new venture is from my perspective.  Very few people who will attend this new campus, which is located directly across the Beaver River […]
