About Our Church

The Leon Valley Baptist Church began in October 1984 with Pastor Forrest E. Jones as the founding Pastor.  From the initial beginnings in a YMCA in 1984, the church then moved to a location at the corner of Callaghan and Bandera where it stayed for several years.  From there, the Lord moved them to another temporary location, an office building that was created to suit the church’s purpose.  In 1992, the Lord finally gave the Leon Valley Baptist Church its own, current property at 7990 Grissom Rd. where it has continued to grow and expand.

The goal of the Leon Valley Baptist Church is to minister to the people in the local area through the local church and to the world through missionary endeavors.  For more about our missionary outreaches, visit our missions page.

The Leon Valley Baptist Church is located on the northwest side of San Antonio outside Loop 410 and is located two miles west of Bandera Rd. on Grissom Rd.

Sunday morning begins with Sunday School at 9:30.  The Morning Service is at 10:30, and Sunday Evening at 6:30.  We have a Children’s Church program at the 10:30 service for ages 4 through 4th grade. We have  a fully staffed nursery available for all services. We also offer ASL and Spanish interpretation for services.   Weekly activities include a choir for adults, an orchestra for teens and adults, Kids 4 Truth Club (4 yrs through 5th grade), Youth Group, Women’s Ministry, Deaf Ministry, Men’s Prayer meeting and Visitation.  Annual events include Jr. & Youth Camps, Missions Conference with a Children’s Mini-Missions Conference, Vacation Bible School, Mighty Men’s Conference, and Women’s Conference.

Our desire as a church is to minister to the local community and to the whole family, from infants to senior saints.  No matter who you are or what your need may be you are welcome at LVBC.  It is our prayer that God’s people might make a difference here in San Antonio and around the world.
