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.

Answers… or Relationship?


One of the most important things we do well to distinguish is whether our journey of faith is about accomplishments, or relationship. For people who are seeking to be effective as ambassadors of God’s kingdom in this fallen world, the temptation is to constantly be focused on the outcome of our faith as being “results” such as blessings, healing, […]

The Courage to Change


It’s not unusual for me to share some experiences of my own on this path of my spiritual journey.  However, today I want to celebrate an experience of one of my close friends and a trusted in partner in ministry. Pastor Lee Kricher, lead pastor at Amplified , which Lee and his wife Linda, founded over 35 […]

Looking Into the Mystery


In the gospel of John there is a very interesting story about the death of Lazarus, one of the closer friends of Jesus during His time on earth.  It’s clear from this and other texts that Jesus spent time at the home of Mary, Martha and Lazarus.  These were more than mere acquaintances in His […]

Our First Priority


Having had close to one week to reflect on the “Missions Homecoming” weekend that we experienced here at North Way, I’ve gained a much clearer and passionate sense that worship is what drives the heart of missions; whether they be missions abroad or missions here at home. A careful reading of Acts 15 and the […]
