Megan Eide, Pastor

Pr. Megan Eide started serving Danebod Lutheran in August 2023, after serving as a pastor in residency at St. Paul Lutheran Church (Davenport, IA) for two years. While Megan was born and raised in Bloomington, MN, her heart has been at home in Denmark since 2018 where she served for a semester as a pastoral intern with the United Methodist Church of Denmark. Megan is especially passionate about the spiritual wellbeing of kids and families, Danish language and culture, and supporting people of all ages through life’s transitions. When she is not zipping around the Danebod campus, you can likely find her out and about with her cocker spaniel, Nisse, as they go for hikes or serve as a therapy dog team. To contact Pr. Megan, please call the church office or reach out to her via email at


Brenda Knudson, Caretaker

Brenda comes from a long line of Danebodians, many of whom were baptized, confirmed, and married here. She began working as the Caretaker in the fall 2021. It should come as no surprise that one of Brenda’s greatest passions is fostering the hospitality and spirituality of this campus so that worshipers, campers, and guests can enjoy the fullness of all Danebod has to offer. Brenda’s other passions are her kids and grandkids. When she’s not tidying up the Dining Hall or remaking beds in the Lodge, chances are you’ll find Brenda spending time with her family, tending the flowers in her garden, or baking sweet treats. To contact Brenda, please call the church office at (507)-247-3000.
