David Nasser | @davidnasser

  • Senior Vice President for Spiritual Development

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 leading Liberty University’s spiritual programs, including Convocation, North America’s largest weekly gathering of young people, and the university’s Center for Global 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 Church. 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.

He and his wife, Jennifer, have two children.

I serve the team by providing logistical support and an administrative perspective to our Convocation and Campus Church services.

I am so thankful for the education and spiritual training I received through Liberty University. As I look back on my time in college I can really see how God has used various ministries here at Liberty to mold and develop me spiritually.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to  serve in some of the ministries that have made me who I am today.

Jake Holland | @jakeholla

  • Creative Arts Associate

Hey! I’m Jake Holland, and I have the fantastic privilege of serving with the Office of Spiritual Programs as the Creative Arts Associate Director. I assist in the creative & social media aspects of Convocation and Campus Church.

I graduated from Liberty in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communication Arts degree (concentrated in Graphic Design) with a minor in Photography. I’m an avid social media junkie with a love for connecting with people from all walks of life. God has given me a passion for finding creative & humorous ways to interact with the world around me, whether face-to-face or through ridiculous looping Vine videos. I’m tremendously thankful for all the opportunities I’ve been given here at Liberty as an undergrad student and now as a full-time employee.

I’m originally from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia (specifically Poquoson) where my parents, sister, and brother-in-law still reside. I’ve lived in Lynchburg since 2009 and greatly enjoy being a part of this community.
