The Revd Nadim Nassar
Nadim was brought up in a large Christian family in Lattakia, Syria. His studies in Beirut at the Near East School of Theology between 1981 and 1988 during the Lebanese Civil War often put his life at risk and had a profound effect on him. He was ordained by the Bishop of London at Holy Trinity Church, Sloane Square in 2004.
Nadim speaks and teaches in the Middle East, North America, Europe and Asia. He gives frequent public lectures for many organizations, including the Al-Khoei Foundation, the Post-Davos Nordic Summit and the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. He advises the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on International Religious Freedom and the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office. His upbringing in the Middle East and his great understanding of the Abrahamic faiths mean Nadim is uniquely placed to offer an authentic Christian voice to other faiths, especially Islam.
Nadim Nassar preaches at churches across London and worldwide and is sought after by broadcast, print and social media outlets. His deep spirituality is enlivened by an engaging sense of humour and the ability to forge deep friendships and enduring relationships among people of faith – and those coming to faith.
His work and the work of the Awareness Foundation in Syria and Iraq, supported by prayerful partners and donors from around the globe, is life-giving.
