Liberty University’s Senior Vice President for Spiritual Development announced Wednesday that he will resign from his position at LU.

David Nasser announced his resignation in a social media post to students.

“After seven years of being a part of this staff as campus pastor, the Lord is transitioning me out of this role and this will be my last semester here,” Nasser said in a video with his wife, Jennifer. The couple explained that their family feels led by God to continue their work in ministry by serving with a nonprofit in Nashville, Tenn. “This has been one of the most difficult decisions we’ve ever had to make, but we do feel affirmed that God is asking for our obedience to step out of this role in ministry and into a whole new role in ministry elsewhere. As your campus pastor, I can’t ask you week after week to be obedient and to go wherever (God) leads and then not model that very same thing in our own lives.”

Nasser addressed LU’s student body and assured them that the different areas of LU’s senior leadership will work together throughout the transition process.

“President (Jerry) Prevo, Pastor Jonathan Falwell, the spiritual subcommittee of the (Board of Trustees), and our (Office of Spiritual Development) directors and team are working side by side to make this transition as smooth as possible,” Nasser said. “These people love God, they love you, and they are committed to making sure we all keep growing in Christ’s likeness.”
