Rev. Dr. James Berger is the pastor of Hope United Church (PCUSA) in Fort Myers, FL. Originally from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, Dr. Berger was ordained in 1975 as a pastor of the Presbyterian Church (USA). He has served churches in Beverly Hills, CA; Petersburg, Alaska; Nassau, The Bahamas; and in Fort Myers, FL.

Dr. Berger is an accomplished guitarist and singer, and has used his talents in wedding services. His adventurous spirit has led to a diverse experience in his ministry of weddings. He has married couples on glaciers and beaches in Alaska, on beaches in the Bahamas, and Florida, and he conducted the first legal underwater wedding in the Bahamas. He has conducted weddings at The Beverly Hills Hotel and the Bel-Air Country Club, with Atlantis Resorts and the Ocean Club, Superclubs Breezes, Sandals, the Sheraton Paradise Island, the Marriott and the Wyndam Cable Beach hotels, to name just a few. Locally he has officiated at ceremonies at the Hyatt Regency, Pink Shell Resort, The Brooks Community Center, Lovers Key, The Vines, Marco Island, Sanibel Island and Vanderbilt Beach. He works cooperatively with the wedding coordinator and other support staff (ie photographer, videographer, etc). He personalizes each service, providing the couple with the actual order of service used at the wedding as their keepsake after the ceremony. Dr. Berger approaches each wedding service as a joyous beginning to a life together, and the opening act to a couple’s grand celebration of their union. He can also perform the ceremony in Spanish, French or German, if desired. Dr. Berger is a member of the National Association of Wedding Professionals. Jim and Patricia live in Estero, FL. Read less

Dr. Rev. Jim Berger made our Wedding Day so incredibly special Our guests commented continuously throughout the night how well he performed our Ceremony. Our favorite part of the Ceremony was something we, nor anyone else attending our Wedding had ever experienced before.
He took the time to ask everyone to stop and take a moment to breathe in the air, and asked us all to envelop ourselves with the beautiful scenery, the moment we were in, and the the love everyone was feeling during our Ceremony. This was so beautiful and is a memory we will treasure forever.
The verses he spoke and the feeling of joy behind his words made our Wedding different and added so much more to our Special Day! It was such and honor and pleasure to have such a beautiful soul marry my husband and I and present us to our family and friends as "Husband and Wife!!"

Dr. Jim was fantastic! He is loving and caring and down to earth. He gave us our premarital classes and helpful advice on how to best start out our marriage. And he was wonderful during the ceremony- making sure we had time to soak it all in since it happens so fast. I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr Jim was exactly who I hoped to find for our wedding. He was Godly, pleasant, professional and engaging. Several of our guests reached out to me to complement what a great ceremony Dr Jim provided. He personalized our ceremony to the point that you would have thought he had known us for awhile when in fact he only met us once before. I would highly recommend Dr Jim Berger.
