Summer Staff Team


Pastor Matt Beem
Camp Pastor July 2nd

Matt Beem was born and raised right here in the Lakes Region. Like many in this area, he did not grow up attending church. Matt came to faith in Jesus Christ at the age of 25 while living in Phoenix, AZ. He initially served as a contemporary worship leader in several Phoenix churches. Sensing a call to pastoral ministry, Matt earned his MDiv. from Fuller Theological Seminary. In 2014, he returned to his native New Hampshire in order to serve God in the place he calls home. Matt currently serves as the lead pastor of The Baptist Church of Franklin, NH.


Pastor Brandon Dupuis
Camp Pastor July 24th

Brandon was raised in northern NH and only left the area to serve in United States Marine Corps. When his term ended, after returning home from Iraq wounded, he moved back to NH. During this season he chose to dedicate his life to the Lord and marry his longtime childhood friend, Jamie. They now raise their 4 children in the same home he grew up in. Brandon felt the call to ministry 9 years ago, which began with Prison Ministry and being a leader of a prayer team out of Oklahoma. Shortly after that, he went on to enroll in Bible College and then served as a Children’s pastor for 4 years. He then felt the call to move on to become the Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church in Berlin NH and Jefferson Christian Church in Jefferson NH. This is Brandon’s 5th year as camp Pastor at Sentinel. Camp Sentinel is a very important part of his family and their ministry as a whole! His wife also serves as one of the Board Members for camp and his children enjoy being campers each year!
