The Rev. Christine Nakyeyune-Busuulwa is an Anglican priest, ordained in the Anglican Diocese of Mityana, Uganda in 1999! She has served the Ugandan Anglican Community in Boston, MA., since December 2006. She currently serves St. Peter’s Ugandan Anglican Church in Waltham.
Reverend Nakyeyune attended quite a few schools, namely, Makerere University (Bachelor of Divinity degree, 1999); Uganda Christian University (Post Graduate Diploma in Education a.k.a. PGDE, 2000), and the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts (Master of Arts in Theological Studies a.k.a. M.A.T.S.,2007).

Prior to her coming to the US, Reverend Nakyeyune did chaplaincy work and teaching in secondary schools in her home diocese of Mityana.
At the present time she’s working on a challenging project the biggest ever such undertaking in her life. In the project, she documents and discusses unjust social, cultural, religious, and legal practices in the world beginning with Uganda, that hinder, deter, and disempower women, especially those from poor and unprivileged backgrounds, from owning personal or co-owning with their husbands, family or company property, especially land. She believes that only God-centered solutions have the required depth and power to resolve these injustices.
Rev. Nakyeyune is a believer in the word of God and an effective communicator of it, through her practical and dynamic teaching style, she helps people apply the timeless truths of Scripture to their everyday lives. She desires to stay humble and please the Lord in everything that she does, for she strongly believes it is not her ministry, but it is the Lord’s ministry; it is not her life, it is the Lord’s life. Her mission statement can be found in Luke 6: 31, “as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.” She is visionary, organizer, and dedicated to serving her congregation, and the community.
She is married to Mr. James Francis Busuulwa and they have four daughters, Jovia, Judith, Jemimah, and Joslyn.
