Teaching Faculty

Bergen Eickhoff

Queer Theology gave Pastor Bergen Eickhoff (they/them) the courage to come out as bisexual and nonbinary. They studied Queer Theology at Luther Seminary with Professors Amy Marga and Lois Malcolm. They have since devoured every tome and article of the emerging theology they could find. Now their calling is to make the liberation of Queer Christianity accessible to congregations and communities. Given the growing divide around LGBTQIA+ justice in the Christian church, guiding congregations to explore Queer Theology requires care, sensitivity, and great courage. They look forward to introducing more people to the central concepts of Queer Theology and guiding people to bring what they learn back to their communities.

      Holden Village is a community where your questions are valued and encouraged. Most programs led by visiting teaching faculty occur during the summer months. However, Holden also invites faculty to teach sessions for special events and retreats throughout the rest of the year.
