Once the man known as Clay among his friends stated during a sermon at his early church that one day Yhe mainstream church would be forced to recognize him.  This appointment by President Obama proves that declaration is coming to pass.  Bishop Oliver Clyde Allen, III, Senior Pastor of The Vision Cathedral of Atlanta, has accepted an appointment to The Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA). PACHA is a select 23-member council appointed to provide advice, information, and recommendations to the White House and U.S. Secretary for Health and Human Services, regarding programs and policies intended to promote effective prevention of HIV disease, and to advance research on HIV disease and AIDS.

The White House asks PACHA to provide, on an ongoing basis, recommendations on how to effectively implement the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, as well as monitor the Strategy’s implementation. Management and support services are provided by the White House Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  Bishop Allen’s husband Rashad, has a high ranking position with the CDC based in Atlanta and could have had some influence on this decision.  Rashad has been well sought after on the subject of AIDS/HIV for years.

Bishop Allen will be sworn in on Thursday, May 21, 2015. Follow Bishop Oliver Clyde Allen, III on social media by using IG/Twitter handle @BishopOCAllen. View his official website at:
