Brad Shockley - Senior Pastor

Rob Frazier is delighted to be serving as Worship Pastor at First Baptist Church Pleasant View, leading worship in song at Sunday services and for other special events.  “Leading God’s people in singing their praise to the Lord is a privilege I do not take lightly,” says Rob. “Congregational worship is not only the right and appropriate thing to offer the Lord who deserves our praise, it blesses us to come into His presence as His gathered family to praise Him for who He is and thank him for what He’s done.”  


Rob enjoyed a 25 year career in Christian music as a songwriter, artist and producer before becoming a pastor, but still counts making music as one of his greatest joys. Initially coming to Nashville to join the band Petra, he recorded and toured with them briefly and then produced 7 solo albums... More
