Jeremy Berg is founding pastor of MainStreet Covenant Church in Mound, Minnesota. He earned a Masters degree from Bethel Theological Seminary (2005) and B.A. in Biblical & Theological Studies from Bethel University (2002). He and his wife, Keri, have three children — Peter, Isaak and Abigail — and live in Minnetrista, MN.
Jeremy and Keri began planting MainStreet Covenant Church in his hometown in the summer of 2010 and launched weekly services in January 2012. Read about the church planting journey here.
Prior to church planting, Jeremy served as the high school pastor at Faith Covenant Church in Burnsville, MN (2007-2010). Before that he used his influence as a teacher, coach, driving instructor, and youth pastor in his hometown of Mound, MN, to launch The Revolution (2005-2007), a grassroots youth movement reaching teens with the message of the Jesus. The Revolution sparked a fire in Mound, made local headlines and brought young people together from several area churches for music-focused outreach and worship events.
In his spare time Jeremy enjoys playing guitar, golfing, browsing used book stores, tractor rides with the kids, and Saturday morning walks to the record store with Keri.
