In 1979 Iran is embroiled in a bitter revolution. Untold numbers of people are being slaughtered every day. Gas prices are skyrocketing across the world. Fear and panic grips the Mid-East. Fortunately, in the midst of this horrible turmoil, God is moving. David Nasser, only nine at this time, is forced to escape his native homeland of Iran with his family. They leave everything behind but each other, escaping to the United States in hopes of beginning a new life in a vastly different culture. In the years that follow, a young David Nasser feels isolated. He seeks acceptance from his peers, turning to everything imaginable to fit in, but always feeling like an outsider. However, David only finds true acceptance, at the age of eighteen, when through the persistent witness of a body of believers, David receives salvation and purpose through a deep and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Fast forward to current day, and David Nasser speaks to over 700,000 people each year. David provides leadership at Liberty University where he is the Senior Vice President for Spiritual Development. At Liberty, David oversees a team that advances Liberty’s mission by strengthening the theological foundation of the student body and its leaders through gatherings such as Convocation and Campus Church. David and his wife have two children and reside in Lynchburg, VA.
“There are few I have known longer and partnered with more than David. No doubt his story is captivating, but his lifelong commitment to advance the gospel through multiple platforms is obvious. I am thrilled to partner with David and his ministry.” – J. Roger Davis
