Dr. David Hirschman is the Acting Dean for the School of Divinity.  An early student at what was then Liberty Baptist College, Dr. Hirschman left in 1982 to begin a twenty-three year ministry as a church planter/senior pastor in Southern Maryland, and then returned to Liberty University in 2005 to complete doctoral studies and join the faculty of the Seminary.  He and his wife Cheryl are parents to Tim and Ashlie Hirschman, and Jen and Josh Chapmon, all of whom are LU graduates.  With more than thirty years of pastoral experience, Dr. Hirschman serves and speaks regularly at churches in Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina.
