Wayne DuBose: Interim Pastor

Bro. Wayne graduated in 1964 from Satsuma High School in Mobile County,  Alabama and attended William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He received his seminary degree in 1971 from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in New Orleans.

He has been the pastor of numerous churches in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana, most extensively from 1980 to 1994 at Summer Grove Baptist Church in Shreveport and from 2001 to 2015 at the First Baptist Church of Minden. He left the Minden pastorate in the summer to 2015 to become the director of missions for the Northwest Louisiana Baptist Association, which includes Caddo and Bossier parishes.

Bro. Wayne is now semi-retired as a small-church consultant for the Louisiana Baptist Convention. After leaving the missions directorship, he completed a stint as interim pastor of the Cook Baptist Church in Ruston, Louisiana. Early in 2017, Bro. Wayne participated in a prayer gathering at his former Summer Grove Baptist Church. The attendees, including US Representative Mike Johnson of Louisiana's 4th congressional district, called for a spiritual awakening in the state and nation. DuBose noted that in 2016 some 90,000 Christians worldwide were martyred for their faith, and thousands of others face serious persecution for their beliefs. In 2021, he was serving as the interim pastor at North Acres Baptist Church in north Minden.

Bro. Wayne and his wife Linda have two children, eleven grandchildren, one great grandchild (and another on the way).
