Faith-Based Community Initiative: Department of State

Shaun Casey, professor of Christian ethics at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, will head the office. Casey also advised President Obama’s presidential campaign on outreach to religious voters. According to the The Huffington Post, religious leaders have campaigned for such an office for a long time.
