Dr. Jim Berg

Growing up in South Dakota, Jim Berg spent countless hours side by side with his dad, tinkering on the family Volkswagens and taking care of the farm. Working with machinery taught Jim to trouble shoot, an ability he has since put to use in counseling. He draws many of his examples and illustrations from his experiences growing up in a working class home. Dr. Berg works on his V W bug, Herbie. Jim credits restaurant work during his high school years with teaching him “people skills,” and college as being the place where God got a hold of his heart, and “blended” all of his growing up experiences together to give him the ministry he has now. Berg shares the important spiritual truths the Lord has taught him with a broad audience from thousands of students to a host of readers and listeners.

Berg holds a MA in theology from BJU Seminary and a DMin in biblical counseling from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He served as dean of students at BJU from 1981 to 2010. Today he is on the faculty of the BJU Seminary.
