From the beginning of The Master’s Seminary, the Busenitz have been here, Irv as a founding faculty member and Karen as a leader of the Semwives Fellowship. Dr. Busenitz is now the V.P. for Academic Administration as well as a Professor of Old Testament. Karen continues in a leadership role, including being a prayer warrior for the women, as well as being a group leader, because of the desire the Lord has given her for this ministry and the opportunity to pursue it. She is also actively involved in ministering to her husband and family, the Seminary and its families, and serving in their Sunday School class with her husband. Dr. Busenitz is an Elder, primarily involved with the Missions Council that gives both of them opportunities to minister to the missionaries of GCC. Most of those are also TMS grads, and their wives are former Semwives. The Busenitzes have been married for 44 years and have two grown sons and their families, including six grandchildren. Making their home now in Santa Clarita, they originally came from the Mid-West, Irv from Kansas and Karen from Oklahoma. They enjoy snow skiing together though it doesn’t happen very often. Karen loves spending time with their family including the grandchildren and also enjoys having people in their home. She occasionally speaks to women’s groups. One of her current favorite verses is Psalm 44:8, ”In God we have boasted all day long, and we will give thanks to Your name forever.”
