Reclaiming Hope: a conversation with Michael Wear

27th February 2017

Appointed by President Obama in 2008 to the Office of Faith-based and Neighbourhood Partnerships and later directing faith outreach for the president’s 2012 re-election campaign, Michael Wear knows about the nexus of faith and politics like no-one else.

Timed to coincide with the publication of his book of the same name - described as “an unvarnished account of faith inside the world’s most powerful office” – Michael will be speaking at Theos, offering a unique perspective on what impact faith did and didn’t have during the Obama years, and where American politics goes now.

Michael Wear is the founder of Public Square Strategies LLC, and a leading expert and strategist at the intersection of faith, politics and American public life. As one of President Obama's "ambassadors to America's believers" (Buzzfeed), Michael directed faith outreach for President Obama’s historic 2012 re-election campaign. Michael was also one of the youngest White House staffers in modern American history: he served in the White House faith-based initiative during President Obama’s first term, where he led evangelical outreach and helped manage The White House’s engagement on religious and values issues, including adoption and anti-human trafficking efforts.
