Background Between 2008-2009 Chris received a prophetic dream of one tribe of people coming together that pleased Great Spirit and reached backward and forward in generations.
"One Tribe, One People" The first of these people would be Native Americans in spirit, but include people from every race, religion and background. The premise is that these people would come to an understanding of the "Native Way" of life: love and revere the Creator; which includes respecting creation, i.e., “Mother Earth;” and the revelation of "Yeshua," "Messiah," "Jesus Christ," "The Great Mystery," "Father," "Creator God;" and Love “Human-hood,” i.e. love your neighbor as if it were yourself. Chris’s dream told him to tell three native spiritual elders about this short story that he was given. Then Chris learned of Quanah ParkerComanche Chief, who, when was seriously wounded, had a vision of Jesus Christ who instructed him to make peace. After making peace, Quanah Parker later founded the Native American Church, which the foundation is Native American spirituality and Christianity. What is Native American spirituality: creation, nature, the Great Spirit in all things. What is Christianity: belief that Jesus Christ the Son of God, thorough which all things created were created.

This led Chris to various Medicine people and spiritual leaders who have influenced his walk. Through sacred ceremonies these leaders have blessed Chris with establishing a church and building & leading sweat lodge ceremonies. Some have prophesied that millions of people would be reached through the church in Virginia. The medicine Chris carries is from Great Spirit and not of his own. One word to describe Chris is "deliberate." His spiritual charge is, “Keeper of the Word.”
Chris is a follower of Jesus Christ as he walks the Red Road in a good way.
