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.

This draft event was an indication of how true that observation is. According to tracking […]

Remember the Cross


As we come to the Easter weekend, I wonder how many of us are caught up in the idea of celebrating the resurrection but not necessarily understanding what had to take place in the life of Jesus so that the resurrection might have it’s ultimate meaning and purpose fulfilled. May we never forget that the […]

People of Influence


Do you ever wonder how believers in Christ can truly affect the culture around them?  In most work settings it would not be appropriate to talk about God in the middle of your meetings or while your fulfilling your assigned or chosen responsibilities and obligations.  However, when God puts you in a position to influence […]

Proactive Faith in Difficult Circumstances


In the past week I’ve been aware of two illustrations of how the peace of God can empower us to confront some of life’s most difficult moments with the sense of the presence and strength of God needed to overcome potentially paralyzing circumstances. In one case, it was the passing on to heaven of the […]

Finding Light in Dark Days


Even though we just turned our calendars into the first days of Spring, many of our days are still cloudy with the threat of dark storms not far in the distance. Any time we come into the light of the awareness of Jesus and His presence, we are empowered to stand against the darkness that […]
