The Faith-Based Advisory Council is an advisory group and members of the council are appointed by the Executive Director of the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives in consultation with the Governor.
The Faith-Based Advisory Council provides advice and counsel to the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives on matters affecting the faith community. The IFBAC reviews OFBCI materials for appropriateness and will assist in assuring that OFBCI efforts appeal to a broad range of constituents, and are not inappropriately biased towards any particular faith, region, or interest groups. The IFBAC raises awareness and interpret issues of particular concern to their constituency.
The Faith-based Advisory Council also assists in proposing outreach strategies and communication models to bring greater cooperation between the faith community and state government and works with the Executive Director to:
1) Plan/promote the annual Governor's Luncheon for Faith Leaders.
2) Conduct quarterly hearings to record individual and collective good works and best practices in an annual report to Governor Daniels.
3) Develop a 92 county tactical faith-based disaster preparedness/response network and database.
