Pastor Bob has been a pastor for 35 years and a police chaplain and crisis intervention specialist for 25 years. His wife, Bo Barnett, has been in public education for 25 years and been a principal for the past 11 years. During their 39 years of marriage they have been blessed to have three sons who are all married, and have one grandchild.
Bo and Pastor Bob have a great love for God's creation and have always had pets as a part of their family. They currently have two pugs, Buster and Bailey, who add a wonderful dimension to their lives. It is their great love for God and His creation that led to the creation of Ark Animal Space, Scripture By Picture, and Noah's Notes as a way of bringing encouragement and healing through the stories and pictures of animals.
