The Rev. Derrick Harkins, the pastor of The Nineteenth Street Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., was named the faith outreach director of the Democratic National Committee in October 2011. Since then, he's traversed the country with his deputy, Joshua Dickson, making the case among people of faith that President Obama deserves a second term. Harkins says the president's values -- fighting for justice and equality, jobs and education -- are values that many in the faith community espouse.
