Liberty University's Campus Pastor David Nasser apologized to the school's entire student body Wednesday for what he called the "sinful behavior" of former president Jerry Falwell Jr.
The News & Advance reports Nasser, a senior vice president who has led spiritual programs at the religious institution for the last six years, said, "I'm sorry. In my opinion, you as a Liberty student deserve better. And the embarrassment that's been brought upon you as a Liberty student, and more importantly brought upon the name of Christ, is wrong."
Nasser's comments came before students and faculty gathered this week at their first convocation of the fall semester at Liberty's Williams stadium.
As the school struggles to rebound from the scandal, former Campus Pastor Dwayne Carson has organized an all-night prayer gathering. Many alumni are participating and will be sharing about it online.
