He grew up culturally Muslim. His father was a general in the Iranian army. Pastor David Nasser tells how his family escaped execution and fled Iran during the Iranian Revolution of 1979. For nine months his family tried legally to get into the United States. It was only after his mother encouraged him to pray and ask this “American Jesus,” whom he’d only heard of, to let them into the country, that asylum was granted. David also recalls his family’s early years in the United States. Eager to fit in at his new school in Texas, David tells what lengths he went to find acceptance among his peers. In his quest, however, David found more than he bargained for. He found salvation and purpose through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
In the midst of the Iranian Revolution of 1979, David and his family had to leave everything behind and escape from Iran to avoid execution. Beginning a new life in the Unites States, David turned to everything imaginable to find acceptance. However, he only found true acceptance when through the persistent witness of a body of believers, David found salvation and purpose through a relationship with Jesus Christ. As one of the nation’s forefront speakers, David speaks to over 700,00 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. David, his wife Jennifer, their son Rudy, and their daughter Grace make their home in Birmingham, AL.
