Public Faith

Michael Wear

Michael Wear is the Founder and CEO of Public Faith. As one of President Obama's "Ambassadors to America's believers" (Buzzfeed), Michael directed faith outreach for 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 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. He is the author of Reclaiming Hope: Lessons Learned in the Obama White House About the Future of Faith in America.

Public Faith is a 21st-century, media-forward advocacy organization which exists to represent a faithful Christian witness in politics, and facilitate the political involvement of over a million American Christians.
