John W. Dupree

Assistant Pastor / LVCA Administrator

Upon retirement from the United States Air Force in September 1999 after 25 years of military service, John Dupree joined the Pastoral Staff of the Leon Valley Baptist Church as an Assistant Pastor and Minister of Music. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Multidisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Bible from Liberty University and an Associate’s Degree in Interpreting and Translating from the Community College of the Air Force. Pastor Dupree and his wife, Arlene, and children, Brian and Erica, first attended Leon Valley Baptist Church in December 1993 following military reassignment from Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota to then Kelly AFB, Texas. They became members in January 1994. Pastor Dupree continues to serve in the roles of Assistant Pastor and Minister of Music and, since 2008 has been the Administrator of the Leon Valley Christian Academy. Mrs. Arlene, as she is called, has ministered for several years as the Women of Faith Ladies Sunday School class teacher and alongside Pastor Dupree as church pianist. She has also ministered as an elementary school teacher for over twenty years at another Christian school in the local area. Both children are grown and out of the home. Brian resides in Houston, Texas, and Erica resides in Lancaster, California.

“The greatest joy that Mrs. Arlene and I have is to see the Lord Jesus Christ work in the hearts and lives of those to whom He allows us to minister. Through His Word, through music that glorifies Him and by a desire to be used in whatever way God chooses to equip His saints, Mrs. Arlene and I thank God for the opportunities He has given us to serve Him.” – Pastor Dupree.
