Barry Franklin Ross resides in Conway, South Carolina, along with his wife, Theresa; daughter, Jessica; son, Zachary; and Lucy, a mixed-up half greyhound and Doberman. Barry served in the South Carolina Army National Guard for a total of seven years, receiving two honorable discharges. For twenty years, Barry's vocation had him actively involved in many facets of the environmental and safety field. Barry is active in several outreach ministries that focus on men coming to know the God in Heaven as a personal, day-to-day Father. "With a deep respect and a healthy fear, I can crawl up into my Daddy's lap and let Him love on me. Although I've never seen Him with my human eyes, He's more real than the ground I walk on, every day. This has come from watching others intently, prayer and many walks along a country road and the seashore. It is my hope and desire that every man come to know the God of Heaven as a personal loving Father. A Father you can call Dad."
