President Reestablishes Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships

Melissa Rogers will be executive director of the office.

President Biden on Tuesday signed an executive order re-establishing the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, first established by President George W. Bush 20 years ago. The office promotes partnerships with religious and secular organizations to better serve people in need.

The president has named Melissa Rogers to serve as Executive Director and as Senior Director for Faith and Public Policy in the White House’s Domestic Policy Council. Josh Dickson, White House Senior Advisor for Public Engagement, will serve as the Deputy Director. Both officials served in the same roles during the Obama Administration.

President Biden said, “I’m re-establishing the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships to work with leaders of different faiths and backgrounds who are the frontline of their communities in crisis and who can help us heal, unite, and rebuild. We still have many difficult nights to endure. But we will get through them together and with faith guiding us through the darkness and into the light.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Melissa Rogers and Josh Dickson as they return to their roles in the White House Office of Fait-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
  • For God to work through the reestablished office to support religious and nonprofit groups to help the hurting and needy.
  • For churches and Christians nationwide as they step up and show the love of Christ.
