MEET THE NORRIS'
WHO IS PATRICK NORRIS?
Patrick Norris is a husband, father, pastor and strategic/therapeutic mentor to leaders in all spheres of influence. From childhood to adulthood, Patrick struggled with panic attacks while leading growing organizations. After bouncing from therapist to therapist, he was trained and certified as an addiction professional, gaining expertise in trauma reprocessing and learning the neuro-sequences that drive emotions to behaviors. Having experienced personal wholeness, today he has a compelling desire to help leaders make sense of their stories, to discover the historical, to learn what drives the hysterical. Today, Patrick uses the Red Ink Revival platform, podcast, and therapeutic groups to bring effective and lasting transformation.
Patrick has a Bible professor’s theological depth, a motivator's inspiration, and a veteran’s humor. He has been privileged to minister to global audiences in churches, conferences, and Bible colleges for over 35 years. He is the founding and senior Pastor of LifePointe Church in Kansas City (Olathe), Kansas. He is also a certified multiple/sexual addiction professional with the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals, founded by Dr. Patrick Carnes (the pioneer of modern sexual addiction recovery models).
Patrick is married to his wife of 30 years, Tina. The have two adult sons, Evan and Mitchell, who also serve in church ministries. He will tell you that he loves those Kansas City Royals and Chiefs, as well as our famous Kansas City BBQ. In short, they love all things Kansas City!
WHAT COLLEAGUES SAY ABOUT PATRICK
It is indeed a privilege to be able to say that Patrick Norris has been a good friend of mine for several years. Patrick’s wit, dynamic personality, depth of theological thought, diligent pastoral care and all around love for people will burst to the forefront of almost anything he does... in particular where God’s people are involved. As both a pastor and ministry clinician, Patrick has a deep burden for those who struggle in life and wonder why. He has been gifted to be able to provide both compassionate and loving pastoral ministry as well as talented psychotherapeutic help to so many of the strugglers in the Body of Christ all from a clinical/Christian prospective. Patrick’s impeccable integrity and character is a monument to the testimony of the person God has created him to be. I’ve become richer as a person and have benefited greatly from the life giving message the Lord has given Patrick and the friendship we’ve shared throughout the years.

Our culture rewards driven leaders without caring what’s driving them. When that drive comes from a dark place, horrific things happen. To them, their family, and everyone under the influence of their leadership. Can this trend of self-destruction be avoided? One conversation with Patrick Norris will make you an optimist. By focusing on the neuroscience around human behavior; particularly the myriads of destructive addictions, and becoming a guide to whole-heart leadership, you’ll be energized by the value-driven map Patrick has passionately developed for leaders in all spheres of influence!

Patrick Norris is on a journey that could change the face of leadership! I’ve known Patrick for many years. His love, energy and thoughtful approaches to complex ideas has inspired so many. His background and expertise around theology, neuroscience and psychology has set him up to work on the core issues within a leader. His approach to look deeper than strategic ideas and into the compulsive heart and personality of the leader rewires them for success in the home, marriage, parenting and the marketplace. I am excited for what is next in Patrick’s dream for leaders!

Patrick has been a friend and confidant of mine for over thirty years and I have had the privilege to see his leadership skills in action. Patrick is gifted in teaching and his content is rich, full of wisdom but in a way that people are able to grasp it and implement it into their everyday life.

I believe the scope of transformation that Dave Ramsey has brought in the area of financial peace, is the magnitude of freedom from the bondage of addiction, shame, and emotional brokenness, that we have the potential to see through Patrick Norris’ Red Ink Revival. This type of bondage is epidemic in our culture today, and I truly believe that Patrick Norris can help bring true restoration and real freedom to people’s lives.
