Virginia Brandt Berg
Virginia Brandt Berg (1886-1968) was born to Nina Lee Marquis and author, lecturer, and clergyman Dr. John Lincoln Brandt is probably best known for being one of a few early radio evangelists via her radio show “Meditation Moments,” that aired for a total of 15 years beginning in the early "30s," and started again in the late "50s."
Up until her passing on March 15, 1968, in Huntington Beach, California, Virginia stayed fervent in her Christian ministry. As a senior citizen in the 1960s, she might be found on the California beaches in her golf cart, bringing food to the counter-culture kids who gathered in Huntington Beach, sharing words of hope and faith with the kids of that generation.
An often repeated theme in her broadcasts and writings is “God is still on the throne and prayer changes things.” Challenging fellow Christians to create a dynamic relationship with their Creator, and to also put the promises of God to the test, she strove to lead her followers to a deeper faith life.
Throughout her long ministry, starting in 1918 and continuing until her passing in 1968, she led a lot people to faith in Christ. Her strong compassion for her fellow humans and her missionary zeal are a continuing inspiration to many through her broadcasts and writings.
