MEET THE STAFF

 
 

Chris Walden

Senior Pastor

 
Chris has been pastoring since August 1996 fulfilling the pastoral call God placed on his 
life. That original call of ministry also included a call to evangelism which is another part of ministry he finds great joy in. He received a B.A. in Applied Ministry from Oklahoma Baptist University in 1995 and completed his Master’s degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2018.  Before coming to Aubrey, he served on staff as Youth Minister at Rock Creek Baptist Church (Shawnee,OK; 1993-1995). Chris married his wife, Heather, in December 1992 and 8 years later they were blessed with the birth & adoption of their twins, Jeremiah and Quincy. Chris enjoys fishing, camping, golf, working outside and spending time with his family. Contact Chris Walden.
 
 
 

Frank Ehrhorn
Associate Pastor

 
Born in San Francisco, CA, Frank moved to Texas as a teenager. In 1973, he married his wife, Veta, and six years later as young worldly adults, they both became transformed, born again believers in Jesus Christ. From the very beginning, Frank & Veta have felt the call to serve the Kingdom of God and the need to be giving their lives to ministry. While seeking deeper things of the Spirit, Frank found that he was gifted in music- a talent that had been dormant his entire life to that point. For more than twenty years, Frank & Veta have served the body of Christ in Youth Ministry and worship. Frank joined the staff at First Rock in 2002 as Youth Minister and Minister of Worship. Continuing as Minister of Worship, he resigned his position as Youth Minister in 2005 to go to school, and in January 2007 became full-time Associate Pastor and Minister of Worship. In 2018 Frank stepped back from Music Ministry to devote his time as our Associate Pastor. Veta continues to be a wonderful mentor to ladies of all ages. Frank enjoys writing and playing music, kayaking and spending time travelling with Veta. Frank and Veta have two grown daughters, Krisi and Courtney and 10 grandchildren.
