Heather Walden

In January 2023, Heather became First Rock’s preschool and Children’s Minister after serving 14 years as the minister of Early Childhood and Educational Coordinator. Prior to joining our staff, she served 13 years as Ministry Assistant, along with various lay leadership positions in the Children and Educational ministries. Following high school, she spent a summer as a student missionary ministering to children through drama, clowning, and leading worship. God used this experience to lead her to recognize the calling He had placed on her to follow His guidance in vocational ministry. Heather received a BAS in Christian Ministry with a concentration in Educational Ministry from Dallas Baptist University and is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Family and Children’s Ministry at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. She married Chris in 1992 and in 2001 God blessed them with their two children, Jeremiah and Quincy. She finds her purpose in being a wife, mom, and serving the children and families at First Rock Fellowship.
