Jump to navigation Jump to search

Peter Berg, one of the Russian Mennonites who participated in the founding of the Einlage Mennonite Brethren Church in South Russia in 1860 ff. With Abram Unger, Heinrich Neufeld, and Gerhard Wieler he was arrested and put into prison on the charge of involvement in forbidden religious acts; for two weeks they were held there in great distress. Since he was not in agreement with the religious excesses of Neufeld and Wieler, he and others were excluded by some early leaders from the Mennonite Brethren Church . He immigrated to the Kuban and lived there in quiet seclusion to the end of his life.
