Henry Burt, MDiv '19, is in his first year of PhD studies in practical theology at Princeton Theological Seminary. His research interests involve a framework of pastoral care methodology that can best address shame- and guilt-ridden individuals and communities, so that they might pursue more flourishing livelihoods. Burt’s work centers on philosophical and theological anthropology, and he hopes to further explore a connection between pastoral care and virtue ethics.

Prior to his PhD studies, Burt graduated with an MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2019. He brings with him from his undergraduate years (BA Psychology and Exercise Science, St. Olaf College, 2016) a passion for cultivating residential community within an educational setting.

Burt is nearing his ordination process for the pastorate in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Along with church ministry, he enjoys cross country running, singing in the Seminary choir, and international travel.
