David Nasser was born in Iran but left the country with his family at age 9 during the Iranian Revolution. After almost a year in exile, his family moved to America. At age 18, he rejected his Muslim heritage and became a Christian. As one of the nation’s forefront speakers, David speaks to over 700,000 people each year using his God-given ability to reach the high tech, attention-lacking culture of Generation Next. The heart-cry of David’s ministry is to effectively present the same message, the Gospel of Christ, using fresh, post-modern methods.
Before coming to Liberty, he founded D. Nasser Outreach and Christ City Church near Birmingham, Ala., where he served as lead pastor.
In 2014, God introduced a new chapter into David’s life - overseeing Liberty University’s Office of Spiritual Development, including Convocation, North America’s largest weekly gathering of young people, LU Send, LU Serve, LU Shepherd, LU Stages, the Worship Collective, and the Office of Online Engagement. He 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 Community. He steers the discipleship process of seeing students come to Christ and grow in their faith and will mobilize students and faculty to reach the world for Christ through the global studies degree program, humanitarian efforts, church planting, and cohesive ministry partnerships.

Robert presents the gospel in such a unique way, that you’re leaning in, holding on to every word that is spoken, as he paints the beauty of the transforming, powerful, life-giving, word of God.
