After a period of recording and performing as a professional musician, Burns Stanfield was ordained in 1991 as a minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA) to pastor the congregation at Fourth Presbyterian, South Boston. While this church was once near closing, it has since grown substantially and is now a vital community presence. It runs a community arts ministry, a large free summer day program, tutoring ministries, recovery efforts, and more.

Stanfield is an Adjunct faculty member in preaching and worship at Andover Newton Theological School and also teaches at Harvard Divinity School. He continues to write music, perform and record. He also performs with “Sweet the Sound”.
