WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 10) — Melissa Rogers, special assistant to the president and executive director of the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, discussed faith and President Barack Obama’s White House at the Religion Communicators Council’s annual convention in Washington, D.C.

The official web site states the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships forms partnerships between government and nonprofit organizations, both secular and faith-based, to more effectively serve Americans in need. The office does so in ways that are consistent with the guarantees of the U.S. Constitution and other laws.

As she began her address, Rogers said that “many discussions of faith and various presidents and White Houses focus on the personal faith of presidents and their outreach to religious communities.” While noting that those are important topics, she said her presentation will focus on three other relevant issues regarding how the administration relates to faith and religion.
