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.

We All Need Wisdom


In a significant number of conversations that I had this week, it’s becoming increasingly clear to me that what many of us are searching for in these days of uncertainty, hardship, suffering and loss as well as confusion and lack of clarity about the future; that one thing is wisdom.  In The Passion Translation Proverbs […]

Finding Purpose in the Pandemic


As most of us are now reaching our 50th day of “voluntary lock down” or as some prefer to call it. stay at home orders,” I’ve been trying to process the value of what we have been called to go through as a corporate society.  It’s  not just the isolation of staying at home with […]

The Power to Make a Difference


As the weeks of our “stay at home lock-down orders” continue on, I’m wondering how many of us feel increasingly powerless to make any sort of difference in the situations in which we find ourselves. No matter where you get your information, it’s all pretty much saying the same thing, that we should continue to […]



In these very uncertain and dramatically pervasive times of the world wide pandemic, we need to be reminded on a daily basis of what God promises to those who trust Him. One of the things that many people tend to do in these days is to download as much “information” as they can by reading various […]
