This year’s featured speaker on Saturday is David Nasser. At the age of nine, he escaped his native homeland of Iran with his family, leaving everything behind to find a new beginning in the United States. Desiring acceptance from his peers, and despite trying to find ways to fit in, he was always left feeling like an outsider. At the age of eighteen, he found true acceptance, when through the persistent witness of a body of believers, he received salvation and accepted a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Today, Nasser speaks to over 700,000 people each year through revivals, citywide rallies, camps, and school assemblies. For more information, visit www.davidnasser.com.
