Hi, my name is Wade Norris, I’m from Passaic, New Jersey and by the grace of God landed here at the Good Shepherd Mission.

I was raised by a God fearing family and was taught the ways of the Lord. Then at the early age of 15 I managed to get myself arrested and spent the next three years away from my family. The street life pulled me out of school and drugs, alcohol, and girls became my daily routine because I assumed nobody cared. Through my grown up years I could not find the solution to what troubled me. I could not get any results from N.A or A.A meetings because Gods word was planted in me from my youth.

On March 1 , 2008, I came to the doors of the Good Shepherd Mission for the help I knew only God could give me. God filled me with his word and Spirit and I’ve been serving on staff ever since.
