Prof. Marc Mullinax (MHC-History ’77) teaches courses in the academic study of religion, Appalachian and Asian religions, Christian theology, Youth Ministry, and religion’s intersections with sociology, biology and history.  A big focus in his classes is: How is the human imagination engaged in the practices of religion?

On campus you’ll find him in the library (and all over campus) holding office hours, speaking with students, and having conversations with other faculty (he’s currently the Faculty Chair).

He’s been teaching at Mars Hill since 2001, and often travels  to South Korea to teach summer courses. He blogs, takes lots of pictures, speaks in local churches, and works for peace and justice in his personal life. You can find his C.V. here.

Come visit, and join me for a class! Mars Hill continues to inspire me to strive for excellence. I’ll work hard with you for your value-added education! -Marc
