About David Nystrom 

David Nystrom is a faculty member at Western Seminary Sacramento Campus, located just north of Sacramento in Rocklin, CA. As a native son of Northern California, Dr. Nystrom is no stranger to the Sacramento community. He lives in Auburn with his wife and daughter, in proximity to relatives, friends, and a network of churches who have been touched by his influence. 


His experience in real-world ministry is part of what makes Dr. Nystrom such a valuable asset to the Church. He spent his formative ministry years serving in youth and college pastor roles with local churches, during which time he was ordained by the Evangelical Covenant Church. His role within that denomination grew in scope and influence over the years, as an ex officio member of the Executive Council of the Covenant Denomination, a consultant on matters pertaining to Christian Education, church planting and spiritual formation, and as Theologian in Residence for the Pacific Southwest Conference of the Evangelical Covenant church (preaching and teaching at local churches and mentoring their pastors).
