Listen to Buffy's Story



As of April 2012, Buffy serves as the pastor for marriage and family ministries at the College View Church on the campus of Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska. She has been in team ministry with her husband, Ron Halvorsen Jr., since they began their ministry in Florida in 1985. However, it wasn’t until officially joining the church staff at the Keene, Texas, Church on the campus of Southwestern Adventist University in 2000 that she finally got a stipend and the title of pastor. She was also on the pastoral staff at Sligo Church in Takoma Park, Maryland, before moving to Lincoln. Buffy holds a BA in religion from Southwestern Adventist University and an MS in marriage and family therapy from Montana State University. Buffy and Ron enjoy spending time with their grown children and friends, camping in the mountains, reading, teaching, and ministering to ministers and their families.
