About Jim

For over 30 years Dr. Jim Burgdorf has ministered in a variety of capacities. Over the years, he has worked with several nationally acclaimed bands as a musician, vocalist, and writer. He has been on pastoral staff with several churches across the United States. Jim has served the local church in both associate and worship pastor roles. He and his wife Karyn, their daughters, son-in-law, and two grandchildren, Magnolia and Sawyer, reside in sunny Florida.

Through the ministry of a teacher and the gifting of a psalmist, Jim challenges believers to be consumed with the pursuit of God’s presence — stating that "WORSHIP" is not simply a musical term but an attitude of the heart, a passion of the heart

Since attending Southeastern University, Jim has taught in conferences, churches, Bible schools, and Worship Workshop’s on six continents. In recent years, the international reach of Jim Burgdorf Ministries has been primarily among the former Soviet states — Ukraine, Russia, Latvia and Estonia.

Jim has written and produced many books and music projects, including an original Russian language, praise and worship project, freely distributing tens of thousands into households across Russia and Eastern Europe.
