Three students named Magee Fellows

Three Lexington Theological Seminary students have been selected as 2014 Magee Fellows to the Kentucky Council of Churches October 24-25 assembly on Restorative Justice.

  • Pamela Pettyjohn, who is scheduled to complete the Certificate of Pastoral Studies program at Lexington Theological Seminary in September, and begin the M.Div. program at LTS in October. She currently serves as an Associate Minister at First Christian Church in Louisville (Disciples of Christ). Her past involvement in refugee ministries and current work with community ministry and prison/re-entry ministry inform her interest in ecumenism and justice.
  • LaVeeshia Pryor, an M.Div. student at Lexington Theological Seminary. Community Holy Week worship services have been an ecumenical inspiration for her. She wants to learn how restorative justice practices help local communities and what role churches can play in that.
  • Joseph Pusateri, an M.Div student at Lexington Theological Seminary and pastors Simpsonville Christian Church where he collaborates closely with Baptist and Methodist congregations. He brings a special passion for social justice and prison ministry and looks forward to exploring the philosophy of restorative justice more deeply.
