Jim Lundgren, class of ’72
Senior Vice President and Director of Collegiate Ministries
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA
Jim Lundgren has served on InterVarsity Christian Fellowship staff for over thirty-five years. During those years he has been a Campus Staff Member (University of Wisconsin, Madison and Whitewater), Area Director (Wisconsin and Metro Chicago/Northern Illinois), Divisional Director (Metro Chicago and Indiana), and Regional Director (Great Lakes West). As Collegiate Ministries Director, Jim works with the National Field Directors to lead InterVarsity’s ministry with students and faculty in all fifty states.

Jim received his B. S. in Business Administration from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and an M. A. R. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. While Regional Director for twenty plus years, the Great Lakes West Region grew steadily with significant expansion in ministry with Asian Americans, Graduate Students, Greeks, and Roman Catholics. He co-directed Marketplace ’86, InterVarsity’s conference on marketplace ministry.

Jim and his wife, Mary Beth, live in Madison, Wisconsin. Before their marriage, she served as the Director of Women’s Discipleship and Counseling at her home church in Indianapolis, Indiana. His two sons, Tim and Andy, are both in their twenties and live in the Madison area. He loves (to his great sadness all too often) the Chicago Cubs and Bears. He enjoys reading in the areas of history and leadership development, and from The Bible Speaks Today series from InterVarsity Press.
