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.

Unforeseen Blessings


2019 marks the beginning of the 38th year since North Way Christian Community was established in a few homes and eventually a small restaurant in the North Hills.

Walking Together as Dads


Any time a family with mature adult children who have children of their own comes together, the circumstance becomes an opportunity for significant growth. One thing that I have lamented when I look back over previous Christmas/New Year family gatherings was the very obvious lack of a time of honest sharing and focused listening with […]

Our Season of Hope, Part 2


One of the most astonishing facts about the birth of the baby Jesus is that His appearance had been prophesied for hundreds of years. In the book of Isaiah some 600 years prior to the birth of Jesus the prophet says, “The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over […]

Our Season of Hope


As we count down the days to Christmas, there are many positive emotions that are very often renewed in these days.  There are the feelings and much anticipated expressions of love with family and friends, the joy of celebrating together, especially if there are little ones in your household.  But perhaps the most needed gift […]

Fresh Air


In what has been a rather remarkable week, the airwaves of our nation have silenced their incessant criticism and negativity to honor the life and legacy of our 41st President.  In what I would call a rather remarkable testament to his life, men and women from all over the political spectrum, as well as other […]
