Joy Bussert M.Div.


Joy Bussert is currently residing in Northfield, Minnesota while serving as an Interim Pastor for the SE MN Synod of the ELCA. She enjoys the rolling river bluffs of southeastern Minnesota. She finished, but has never published, her doctoral dissertation from Union Seminary, NYC, “The Theological Problem of Suffering and the Elimination of Violence against Women and Children.” She is the proud mother of Kate, who is happily settled in as a  Theater Studies/English Literature major at Wellesley College outside of Boston, MA.  Joy thought that the October 2012 Class Reunion was a great time to re-connect with friends, old and new, but wondered what had become of the Women’s Center, (located in Bacon House), where she worked with Ann Owens-Brunger and Gilmary Bauer from 1975-1977. Anybody know?
