White, who became the first-ever female clergy member to deliver an invocation at a presidential inauguration last January, delivered a sneak peek this week of what’s to come, telling CBN’s “Faith Nation” that she and other faith leaders on Trump’s advisory council are gearing up to work on six, specific initiatives.

“We’ll have about six initiatives – exciting, exciting things that, if we thought we did some things last year, boy, wait until this year,” White told hosts David Brody and Jenna Browder. “We’ll be touching on everything from humanitarian, working of course on criminal justice reform, religious liberties, so many different aspects, mental healthcare, substance abuse.”

White said that some of these initiatives will roll out during the “early part of the year” and that there are plans to not only carry through on policy, but to sync up these efforts with houses of worship in an effort to maximize impact.

“There are many things that are planned through the White House and the president to see these initiatives not just launch but successfully working with churches, organizations, synagogues, all people of faith,” White added. “So, I’m excited to be a part of it and kind of to be at the helm working with the principles in the White House.”
