Jeff "Surge" Berg... Husband, Dad, Associate, Coach, Trainer, Cop, Laird... Leader!!


"Don't Die Wondering" was a phrase I heard in college and have tried to live my life by ever since.  The early years consisted of playing college football, singing in the university choir, as well as, co-founding a traveling team and big event concert called 'Surge.'  After finishing my Bachelor's in History & Political Science from Ottawa University, I began pursuing full-time ministry earning a certificate of Youth Ministry from the Kanakuk Institute, as well as, a Master's degree in Youth & Family from John Brown University.  Working with teenagers and parents in a pastoral role for over a decade, I left vocational ministry in 2014, taking a position as the Leadership Coach for all Bixby Athletics at Bixby High School and became a reserve Police Officer with Bixby PD.  In late 2015, I started another exciting adventure with the largest retailer in the world (Walmart).  Today, I can be found training Walmart associates all over Oklahoma through our innovative Academy Training Stores, as well as, presenting and speaking through Surge Leadership™ and The Spartan Code®!  Discipline of self, Integrity of heart, Sacrifice in hands and Courage through feet are the principles I choose to live out each day.  And yes, on my 30th birthday I received a 10" by 10" piece of land in Scotland making me in fact a Laird.  D.D.W. my friends!
