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 Pathway to Maturity


Have you noticed just how negative our culture is becoming?  It’s difficult to go through a day and not be bombarded by critical, judgmental and even hurtful comments through an ever increasing array of media. In just the last 10 years, social media has provided a platform, and dare I say even a megaphone, for […]

Delivered from Disappointment!


Near the end of Luke’s gospel account is a very powerful story about the journey of two of the disciples walking on the road to Emmaus, about 7 miles from Jerusalem.  It reads, beginning in verse 14, “They were talking to each other about everything that had happened.  As they talked and discussed these things with […]

Preparing for Easter


For whatever reason, in many Christian churches the recognition of the importance of “Maundy Thursday” and “Good Friday” have taken an increasingly diminished understanding and therefore recognition. However, the only way to fully experience the overwhelming joy of the Resurrection is to seek to contemplate what Jesus was going through and what He expected of […]

The Core of Our Identity


Over the past 10 years or more, I have endeavored to walk by faith in this matter of facing the very real structural issues with my lower back.  (In 1995, an X-ray revealed that a cracked bone in one of my vertebrae had allowed it to begin to slip out of alignment.  This was only […]
