Brad is no stranger to camping having served on summer staff at Bluewater Covenant Bible Camp, summer and full time staff at Covenant Pines Bible Camp, on the board of Covenant Park Bible Camp, as well as on the Adventurous Christians Commission. Brooke has worked alongside Brad as a significant volunteer at New Life Covenant, coordinating the VBS program and Women’s Bible studies.

The Shannon’s have three children, J – 11, Ryan – 10 and Katie – 5. Brad made news two years ago when he snowmobiled over 1800 miles from Twig, MN to Churchilll, Manitoba as a fundraiser for a new church building.

“I have known Brad for many years and am excited to work alongside him and Brooke at AC,” says CPM Executive Director, Dave Cairns. “Brad has a heart for ministry and a love of God’s creation. I’m excited for what the future holds at Adventurous Christians under his leadership.” Please join with the Covenant Pines Ministries community in welcoming Brad and Brooke Shannon to Adventurous Christians.

The Shannon’s will begin in early July.
