Mary Pulliam

Senior Director of Church Relations 

Mary held various sales and customer service positions in her previous work life but discovered her true passion was for serving churches. She began her service in 2002 as Executive Director of Love In the Name of Christ (Love INC) before transitioning in the spring of 2015 to the position of Director of Church Relations at One Body Collaboratives, Inc.

During her time at Love INC she grew the church network from fourteen partner churches to over eighty churches. This increased church presence makes it possible for the clearinghouse to direct callers to already existing help in the community, and to fill in the gaps by helping churches develop classes and services to support these struggling families.  She has been instrumental in working with the churches within the network and has launched several ministries created to serve struggling families. These gap ministries, housed and operated through local churches, provide various needs such as toiletry items, household items, clothing, classes, etc. to callers who contact the clearinghouse.

Mary is a mother to three adult children, Catherine, Emily and Lincoln and grandmother to Julie, Hunter and Ashton. She is proud to call the Rock River Valley her home and is excited about focusing on the area of Church Relations.
