Dr. Barnes attended Bay Cities Bible Institute from 1987 to 1988. In April 1989, he was ordained a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and appointed co-pastor of White Oak Grove under the guidance of his Pastor. He was called as the Interim Pastor of Abyssinian Missionary Baptist Church in November 1991, and was unanimously elected Pastor in January 1992. Since being elected Pastor his primary focus is saving souls and changing lives.
The work of pastoring is a calling of the Lord. Dr. Barnes has been tested and tried in many ways. Just as Nehemiah refused to come down off the wall, so has Dr. Barnes. He is ever faithful and understanding of the flock. He is much like the Prophet Nehemiah, a strong leader, a man of character, persistent, prayerful, a brilliant planner, organizer, and motivator. Dr. Barnes is a sacrificing person who takes his responsibility as Pastor seriously, many times missing meals and sleep to minister to Gods people. He is a genuinely humble servant of God and a passionate believer who is thoughtful, willing to listen, learn and to share his knowledge with others.
Dr. Barnes is in touch with God and uses his student outlook on life in studying the Word of God and in preparing sermons and Bible Study lessons. Under his leadership, Abyssinian has grown and prospered. Dr. Barnes has spearheaded the feeding ministry for 14 years. He is the third Vice President of the Bay Cities Baptist Ministers Union, and has worked with troubled youth through the Oakland Police Department.
Dr. Barnes attended the Sacramento Theological Seminary Bible College where he received his B.A. degree in May 2003. He also received his Honorary Doctorate Degree, September 2003, and his Masters in June of 2005, and will receive his Ph.D. in May 2007. Dr. Barnes is a progressive pastor, striving in the forefront, carrying a banner for Jesus.

I take my hat off to the Barnes family. The use of this book as a platform to good parenting is something that is needed in our urban communities all over. To have had the courage and insight to put Christian parenting tactics in writing needs to be commended. You can tell by reading this book that this Pastor and wife team not only loves their children but, also loves everyone around them. God bless you both.

Dawn Lundin5 Stars Out Of 5April 18, 2008Dawn LundinI read this book in one evening after sitting down to start on it. It is full of excellent advice for parents or teachers working with children. I recommend this book to anyone who is raising young children of any race. It is a very encouraging and heart-felt book.
Theresa Davis5 Stars Out Of 5April 18, 2008Theresa DavisSuccessfully Raising Young Black Men touched me like no other book has. It was heart felt, compassionate, and enlightening. While reading this book, I laughed, cried, said Amen, and pondered on my own situation. Pastor Barnes combined a wealth of personal experience and solid Bible teaching in a down-to-earth book that presents parenting African American boys as the responsibility and privilege of parents. Whether we like it or not, there is a war going on around us. A spiritual war! God has given parents places on the battlefield, and this book will help you take your place with confidence.
