The Obama administration will be announcing a diverse set of advisers for a revamped White House office that will direct government money to religious and neighborhood groups involved with social service work. Among these groups are a former president of the Southern Baptist Convention, a Jewish rabbi active in Washington and a ground-breaking female African-American bishop. The office is to be headed by Joshua DuBois, a 26 year old Pentecostal minister who headed religious outreach for the Obama campaign. Obama had stated during that his campaign that he intended to expand White House faith-based efforts that began under form president George W. Bush. President Bush created a new white House Office for Faith-based and Community Initiatives by signing the executive order on January 29, 2001.
