Pastor Alvin Dupree who serves on the Appleton, Wisconsin school board, says he’s facing a tougher fight now than he did on the battlefield during the twenty years he served as a Marine.
Dupree vows he will not back down from speaking about Jesus despite pressure to do so. “This is who I am,” he told CBN News, “I will not be silenced.”
Dupree spoke at the Appleton North High School graduation last spring, at which time he spoke about the value of leaning on God through difficult times. Dupree was referring to the suicides of two students that year. One of those students was Erika Winkler. Her mother told CBN News her daughter was bullied for her faith, and that contributed to her suicide.
