Liberty University named Jonathan Falwell as its chief pastor on Thursday, months after his disgraced brother, Jerry Falwell Jr., was ousted from his role as the school’s president following a series of scandals.
"I’m grateful for the opportunity to help shepherd @libertyu in its original mission of Training Young Champions for Christ," Falwell wrote on Twitter. "However, this responsibility will not rest with me alone. LU's spiritual mission is the responsibility of thousands of staff, faculty and students."
Jonathan Falwell will retain his role as senior pastor at Thomas Road Baptist Church, where his father, televangelist Jerry Falwell Sr., was a founding pastor. He will replace Liberty University’s current chief pastor, David Nasser, who will resign at the end of the current semester. The school said Nasser left on "good terms."
Jerry Falwell Jr. resigned from his roles as Liberty University’s president and chancellor last August. His exit followed allegations by Giancarlo Granda, a former business partner who said he engaged in a lengthy extramarital affair with Falwell’s wife, Becki.
