Meet Julie Bullock
Julie Bullock brings a unique gift mix to our team of generosity strategists. She has had experience in a wide variety of capacities influencing churches and organizations to embrace a culture of generosity. Prior to joining Generis, Julie served as the director of stewardship and generosity at Community Christian Church, a multi-site church in Chicagoland with 13 campus locations. While on staff at Community, Julie also served as the director of development for the NewThing network, Community’s church planting network, as a generosity coach to new church plants and churches desiring to go multi-site.
Julie has also served as the director of development for Wheaton College, leading a team of 30 advancement professionals in a $160 million capital campaign and previously served as a top major gifts officer on Wheaton’s team during their $260 million campaign as well, the largest in Wheaton’s history.

Julie, her husband Jud, and their daughter Jayma reside in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area, where Jud raises beef cattle and where they both are involved in their church – of which Julie serves on the board.
Julie is experienced and talented at working with innovative churches of all denominations and sizes – from those with a $200k annual budget to those with a $50M annual budget. You’ll find Julie to be a sharp mind with a warm and energetic spirit and a work ethic of excellence.
Let’s be honest; there are times when one-on-one guidance, encouragement and accountability brings out the best in us and accelerates our ability to chase down those big, audacious dreams. The Generis Coaching experience is designed to align with your greatest needs and is delivered over a period of time that makes the most sense for you.
No matter the size of your God-inspired dreams, it can be daunting to think about chasing down the necessary resources. The truth is that while vision almost always exceeds current realities, the means to support your vision is within your grasp.
With Generis, you’re not alone. Our customized Campaign approach will help you assess, rethink and reframe your current reality, allowing you to reach your specific goals while also establishing a foundation for increased generosity overall.
From time to time, it can be extremely helpful to analyze the habits of your overall giving climate to see what is currently working as well as where opportunities for a culture of generosity to increase might exist.
The Generosity Assessment is a one-day experience that provides a thorough assessment of your church’s effectiveness and reveals new opportunities for creating a culture of generosity. Think of it like an x-ray into the giving perspective of the church.
