II GUYS FROM PETRA - Bob Hartman & John Schlitt - website

Mission Statement

With Petra's retirement at the end of 2005, we are now continuing the band's 33 year legacy as an acoustic duo. Our aim is to fill a need within the church - that of creating a time of exciting yet reverent worship of our Lord through music and up-close-and-personal fellowship within the Body of Christ.


At the time of Petra's retirement at the end of 2005, the future was unclear for Bob and John. Both were pursuing other ventures outside of the music business when Bob received an invitation from Canada to lead worship for a youth retreat. Bob immediately thought of teaming with John, much to the delight of the sponsors. As Bob began arranging popular worship songs for the duo to perform, it became obvious that it wouldn't be much harder to make an album together. After several months of work it was time to christen the new venture. Should they call themselves Bob and John...or Schlitt and Hartman? They elected to call themselves what they suspected people would call them inevitably..."Oh...that's two guys from Petra"!
