Sam Marullo
Director of Research on Missional Communities; Professor of Sociology

Dr. Marullo directs Wesley’s newly created Center for the Missional Church, located at our Wesley Downtown location.  He joined the Wesley faculty in 2010 after serving more than nine years as Chair and Professor of the Department of Sociology at Georgetown University.  A 2010 M.Div. of Wesley, Dr. Marullo now serves a crucial role in equipping church leaders for missional engagement in the world.  The Center helps to “turn churches inside out” as leaders learn about fruitful ministry practices in service, mission, social justice, and community transformation.  The Center supports Wesley’s curriculum development in the areas of urban ministry, public theology, missional church and evangelism.  Dr. Marullo teaches courses in the areas of missional church, urban ministry, social justice, and social research in ministry.
