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 Renewed Mind


It was in my last year of college that a single verse became extremely important in my spiritual development.  Paul writes in Romans 12:2 “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  It goes on to say “Then you will be able to […]

Don’t Miss the Blessing


Just recently, we received some news that was unexpected and rather difficult.  Of course, having a spouse with whom you can share such things immediately helps you to process your feelings as well as your faith.  However, when an issue is particularly challenging and may have ongoing implications, one of the more hidden and unspoken […]

The Battle We Are In


Perhaps it is the completely unavoidable negative intensity of a presidential election year, but it seems that there are more issues to confront and even understand than we had just ten years ago. The rise of the constant threat of some sort of “terror,” the regular reports of violence throughout normally safe and quiet neighborhoods […]

Taking A Stand


Although we are all tempted from time to time to simply retreat from the public square, that’s not an option according to scripture.  In fact, we are called to live out our faith in such a way that it doesn’t just challenge those who are not believers, it attracts them to what it is that […]

The Wind in My Sails


By the grace of God, I’m at a stage in my life when I am able to discern the things that energize me versus the things that seem to deplete my motivation. It may not come as a huge surprise, but research shows that the best moments of our lives don’t come from leisure or […]
