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.

(In some future post, I want to talk about “prophetic encouragement” which is simply […]

A Word of Encouragement


Over the past few weeks I’ve sensed the Lord is getting my attention about one fundamental need that is common to almost every believer, as well as everyone who may not yet know who Jesus is. This is something that we may find “non-essential” in our day-to-day activities, but I have no doubt that every […]

Freedom From Fear!


Whether or not we want to openly acknowledge it, I believe it’s true that most every one of us deal with some sort of inadequacy or past experience that cause us to have fear in different situations. This fear is not the kind of “horror” that people may fall into when being physically attacked or […]

Praying the 23rd Psalm


If you have read any of my posts over the last several months, you’re aware that I’ve become a very big fan of The Passion Translation Bible.  In it’s current form, The Passion Translation is simply Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon and the entire New Testament from Matthew through Revelation.  (I’m doing some research on […]

The Blessing of a Smooth Transition


One of the most significant and indeed profound disciplines of our great country has been the consistent unity and order that has surrounded almost every transfer of primary (presidential) leadership in our nation. Despite seasons of heated political rhetoric that seemed impossible to overcome, every 4-8 years our entire nation witnesses the pomp and circumstance […]
