Family Life Pastors Jon and Susan:
Jon and Susan Beam are parents to six beautiful children, and live in Alton NH. They lead their family and lead at homestead as incredible examples of servant leadership. They have taken trips, once with all their kids, to Uganda to do missions work and are active in giving themselves to God's call on a daily basis. They are a couple that model a righteous marriage and Godly parenting, if you haven't gotten to you know them yet, you are missing out!
Jon is on the board for the New Hampshire Alliance and is a rock star at networking local leaders to come together in unity. He participates in helping on the worship team, leading the men's group, cooking bacon, and his absolute favorite is the occasional work of shoveling... which we all know is a divine calling! He is currently traveling back and forth to Uganda to do missions work there!
Susan is a woman to admire! She is a talented seemstress, not just in clothing, but sowing into the lives of those around her. She's a family woman with deep wisdom, a quick wit, and a very large heart. With many talents and different hats, you could find her putting her hand to a number of things, and whatever it may be, it turns to gold.
Pastor Katrina, a graduate from Elim Bible Institute with a major in Bible and minor in music, has been pastoring at Homestead for four years. She has been active in ministry from a young age, whether it was traveling in the middle east with her parents, playing on the worship team, or assisting at the Food Pantry at Lakes Region Vineyard Church in Laconia. She spent three terms in California as a full time volunteer with Invisible Children, a non-profit working to end the use of child soldiers in Central Africa, and has traveled to South East Asia to do work with LOVE146: a non-profit working to end child trafficking and sexual exploitation. She enjoys any time she gets with her husband, Bryant Keefe, hiking with her dog, or any sport that puts her feet on a board! She hopes that when people come to Homestead they will "taste and see that the Lord is good!"
Children's Pastor Judy Eldridge:
Judy is a one of a kind women! Her heart for the children at Homestead is bright and overflowing with love! Judy is a native to Wolfeboro New Hampshire who loves her family to the moon and back! We are honored to have her on our team, and we know your children will grow in the knowledge of God under her care!
Worship Pastor Jonathan Lamper:
Jonathan grew up in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, going to Lakes Region Vineyard Church and participating in different events and youth group all growing up. He is married to the beautiful and kind Amanda Lamper and is the lead singer/screamer for the band Ana Saphira. In his spare time he's either riding his motorcycle (or fixing it?), climbing things, playing with dogs, and going on adventures with his wife . He has a deep passion for Jesus and a strong desire to see the move of the Holy Spirit in worship. We are beyond honored to have him on our team!
Younger: Katelyn Beam
Katelyn is a rare gem! A highschool graduate from Prospect Mountain Highschool (top of her class!), she will be attending Messiah College in the fall. She is a "beam" of light and love to all who know her, with her parents good sense of humor, and easy going attitude, she is a blessing to all who know her. Thought we are sad to see her leave New Hampshire for college, we know that God has so many grand adventures in the future for her that we cannot wait to see unfold!
