RED INK RETREATS are 3 to 5 day experiences, led by tenured pastors, neuroscientists and psycho-therapists that help pastors, staff and marketplace leaders lead whole-heartedly in every sphere of life!
Leadership is more than clarifying vision, establishing organizational beliefs, developing formal governance, implementing leadership layers, creating scalable systems and executing strategies. Leadership begins and ends with the individual heart-health of the leader and their leaders. Whole-hearted leadership is about leading from robust health, spiritual vitality and emotional intelligence for every role a leader must tend to, personally and professionally.
UNIQUE LEADERSHIP RETREATS
STORIES FROM THOSE WHO HAVE ATTENDED!
SO WHY DO YOU...
So why do you do what you do?
Why do you have both success deprivation and success obsession?
Why are interpersonal conflicts so emotionally difficult?
Why do you feel you are disappointing everyone?

Wouldn’t you like to know the “why” behind your leadership patterns?

PATRICK NORRIS (PASTOR, PSAP)
Senior Pastor/Guest Speaking Preacher (34+ Years)
Adjunct Professor at Bible Colleges
Certified Sexual Addiction Professional
As the host of Red Ink Revival, Patrick Norris has developed a heart for leaders who want to know what they are driven by. Patrick’s own battle with anxiety, panic attacks and compulsivity has led him to a journey of self-discovery. Many of the Christian teachings and therapeutic treatments – while good – were insufficient to satisfy his deeper torments generated from a lifetime of relationship pains. From a young age he was privileged to sit at the tables of, and have relationships with, some of the leading voices of certain Christian movements. He has seen great people with great fame suffer with disintegrated private areas of their lives. This has given him compassion for those who suffer as leaders and passion to see them have credible, substantial and sufficient help.
Patrick has dedicated his life to learning behavioral neuroscience, studies in psychology and his first love of theology. With over 34 years of being a senior leader in church and para church ministries, his journey has led him to become a certified sexual addiction professional with the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals. He has seen many people who have exhausted resources with traditional, religious and even therapeutic cures come to a new understanding of why they do what they do. Freedom is now their testimony.
