Trinity Christian College will welcome Joshua DuBois, the director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, on Wednesday, April 22, for a public address at 1:30 p.m. in the Ozinga Chapel.
DuBois, a former associate pastor and advisor to President Barack Obama, also served as his campaign director of Religious Affairs. He will be speaking about the President’s vision for the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, which is particularly focused on fostering partnerships with faith-based organizations as related to such issues as the economy, poverty, teen pregnancy, and the support of women and children. DuBois will also address the goal to cultivate dialogue with leaders and scholars of various faiths and disciplines from around the world.
The Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships was created by Obama this past February as a resource for Americans who are committed to improving their communities regardless of religious or political views.
“There is a force for good greater than government,” said President Obama. “It is an expression of faith, this yearning to give back, this hungering for a purpose larger than our own, that reveals itself not simply in places of worship, but in senior centers and shelters, schools and hospitals, and any place an American decides.”
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Jane Voss at 708.293.4907 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
