Hi, I’m David Qaoud. And this is my personal blog.
Proper introductions begin with names. My last name is pronounced “Quad” as in your quad muscle. It’s difficult to spell, but easy to pronounce, and is almost always the first question people ask me.
I’m a Christian, husband, writer, and blogger from St. Louis, MO. I’m also an MDiv student at Covenant Theological Seminary.

Top 100 Christian Bloggers
Per one source, I was named as one of the Top 100 Christian Bloggers in 2017. You can find the full list here.
WHY GOSPEL RELEVANCE?
I first started blogging in late 2011. The intent was to reach unbelievers for the gospel, and the original name of the blog was Stuff That’s Relevant.
Over time, however, I noticed most of my readers were believers, and hungry for more gospel-centered content. So I changed the name to Gospel Relevance, and haven’t looked back since. The mission of this blog is simple: To give you the best gospel-centered resources for your gospel-driven life.
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?
As a person who has trusted in Christ, my theological convictions fall under the following categories:
I graduated from Northwest Missouri State University with a B.S. in Business Management and Marketing. I’m now an MDiv student at Covenant Theological Seminary. For fun, I enjoy reading and writing, and you can always catch me rooting for my hometown sports teams.
Also, I got married on March 18th, 2017! Denise and I were good friends for three years before we ever started dating. After dating for a little over five months, I proposed on a beach in Florida during vacation. She said “yes.” Being married to her is one of the great joys of my life, a desire I’ve had for a long time. The Proverb is true: “A desire fulfilled is sweet to the soul” (Proverbs 13:19).
But whatever you do, don’t think too highly of me. I’m just a regular dude who struggles with anxiety and I care too much about what people think of me.
