Nägyid Chris Norris
Nägyid (Leader) Chris Norris spent all of his childhood and teenage life in Detroit’s Brightmoor community. As challenging as it is for many African American boys in urban neighborhoods, Chris avoided jail, gangs, and excessive substance abuse, just to name a few. Even though he was raised in a home with married Christian parents, he still struggled greatly with unresolved anger and discipline. In 2012, he successfully completed the Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy’s rite of passage at Rosedale Park Baptist Church in Detroit Michigan, it changed his life. The training fed an appetite for God’s word and spiritual growth, along with understanding on how to positively channel the physical power God has given him. After graduating high school, he truly believed that it was God’s calling to further train and assist Shärath Wilson in the Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy. What intrigues Chris the most about the “Cave” is its ability to successfully transform the lives of brokenhearted boys scarred by drastic experiences. He has witnessed first-hand young boys who have overcome bullying, deep father wounds, ADHD symptoms, and being suicidal. He is convinced that it is truly an audacious program that builds positive camaraderie and character among the students who would not usually experience such in their individual communities.
