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.

Greater Revelation


In these very uncertain and often discouraging times that we are in, especially as we move toward Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year, many are praying for a revelation of what God wants us to be expecting in the days ahead.

The Antidote


Over the past months, and especially the past couple of weeks, there has been no shortage of difficult, negative and discouraging news, particularly regarding the pandemic, but also with respect to the divide in our nation. Some of us have the discipline to simply not take stock of outward circumstances in the morning and some […]

An Oasis Moment


When we hear the word “oasis” we normally tend to associate it with a lush green patch of vegetation and perhaps even some trees because of a very direct and concentrated water supply in a very dry and difficult terrain. For people who are desperately thirsty or perhaps weakened by their journey, an oasis can […]

The Light of Men


In an effort to describe the dynamic tension in which we find ourselves in this season of national and even global fear and uncertainty, perhaps the best biblical language I can land on is that of “light and darkness.” The rise of covid-19 “cases,” not just in parts of our country but in Europe, Eastern […]

Restraining Impulse, Embracing Grace


In the current climate of almost daily confrontations with words of division, unusual declarations, limiting of personal freedoms, etc., etc., there’s a part in most every one of us that wants to react with our impulse. Impulse is not necessarily right or wrong, but it is more a trait of our natural life than our […]
