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.

Football and Faith

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 […]

Thanksgiving 2017 . . . A Perspective


If there’s one thing that the scriptures seem to call out with words that we can barely fathom, it has to do with the magnitude, the scope of the majesty and sovereignty of God. Scripture reminds us that creation, all of the unfathomable vastness of the universe; the galaxies, the stars, the planets stand as […]

Giving Thanks For You


Over the past several weeks in our home group, we’ve been studying in the book of Ephesians.  Even though we had initially planned to study this amazing book for 12 weeks, it’s become very clear that we would just skim the surface of the depths of the truth that the Apostle Paul  reveals if we kept […]

Living the Good Life


Most of America was shocked yet again when another senseless, inexplicable mass murder took place in our nation.  This time it was where the shooting occurred that touched many of us, almost as much as the tragic loss of life. I’ve heard some spiritual leaders say that “every place we go should be safe” so […]

The Reformation… 500th Anniversary!


It’s widely believed that October 31st, 1517, was the day that Martin Luther, an Augustinian Monk who was a teacher at a university in Wittenberg, Saxony (North Germany) nailed his 95 thesis on the front door of the university. Luther’s act was simply the result of years of studying the growing practices of “selling indulgences” […]
