Christan Business League will host Dubois.
Reverend Joshua DuBois, Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and Director of the White House Office of Faith Based and Neighborhood Partner-ships, will be the Keynote speaker at the Christian Business League's "Faith and Finance" Breakfast on Friday, March 9th from 7:30-9:15 a.m. at the A. Charles Bowie Educational Center of East Mt. Zion Baptist Church. Over 200 clergy, business people and entrepreneurs are expected to attend. Reverend Dubois' topic will be, "Faith and Finance."
In his current White House position, Reverend DuBois oversees a council of 25 influential religious and nonprofit leaders and scholars. His office is charged with helping such groups improve their communities, by aiding in economic recovery, promoting interfaith dialogue and cooperation, and taking steps to strengthen at-risk American families. In announcing DuBois' appointment, President Obama said, "Joshua understands the issues at stake, knows the people involved, and will be able to bring everyone together - from both the secular and faith-based communities, from academia and politics - around our common goals."
"At PNC, we are committed to supporting efforts that make our communities better places to live and work," said Michael J. Taylor, executive vice president of Community Development at PNC. "Reverend DuBois' address will provide valuable perspectives on harnessing the power of our own strong faith-based community to positively impact the economic development efforts in our neighborhoods,"
