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.

Developing Faith


Over the past few months I’ve had several challenging and what I would call significant conversations about the process of growing in our faith throughout our spiritual journey.  There’s no question that faith is something that pleases God (Hebrews 11:6), but it is also a quality of our lives that can be exercised much like […]

FInding Peace That Lasts


If there’s one thing of an internal nature that is to characterize our lives it is the presence of … peace. Interestingly, most of us are inclined to define peace in terms of the absence of something else.  Peace is the absence of war, the absence of conflict, the absence of arguments, even the absence […]

Thy Kingdom Come


The imperfection of our democratic system of government was on full display for millions of Americans to watch and evaluate over the past twenty-four hours, if not the past six weeks or so.   Despite nine hours of riveting testimony from the accused and his accuser, it became evident that we were no closer to knowing […]

Evidence of the Kingdom


In our world with the informational overload that bombards us every hour of the day, every day of  the week, it is not difficult to sometimes feel overwhelmed by our calling to live for Christ in this present day culture. One of the ways that I have found to be most important for me to […]

“It’s Not a Formula…”


Hardly a day goes by without my having a conversation with someone who has been “waiting on the Lord” for some sort of answer to prayer, guidance or provision. Just the recognition that others who we may perceive as being even more spiritual than we are (really?!), seems to immediately help us to accept our […]
