Covenant Bay Bible Camp
Pigeon Lake, AB

A weekend long gathering of encouragement, networking, and professional development designed for paid and volunteer youth workers in the Evangelical Covenant Church of Canada. It is the desire of the ECCC Youth Ministry Network and Covenant Bay Bible Camp to equip and train youth ministry leaders in their role at the local church. Youth ministry is dynamic and it is important to continually sharpen one's ministry tools as well as add new ones. From practical lessons like organizing and the administration of a youth ministry to staying fresh while serving in the trenches of youth ministry. This weekend is strategically scheduled for the weekend right before the ECCC Pastor and Spouse retreat, to reduce travel cost for some attendees. 

We have some incredibly gifted and knowledgeable speakers lined up for you! 


Ginny Olson is the Acting Director for Youth Specialities. Ginny has served in youth ministry in a variety of ways including youth pastor, youth ministry professor, speaker, consultant and writer. She has a long history with Youth Specialities as a presenter, Thought Partner, and an author of two YS books - Teenage Girls: Exploring Issues Adolescent Girls Face and Strategies to Help Them, as well as Youth Ministry Management Tools 2.0, (with Mike Work).


Tim Ciccone is Director of Youth Ministry for the Evangelical Covenant Church and has a deep passion to serve and encourage youth workers across the denomination.  He is father to Caleb, Josiah, Samantha, and Ethan and has been married to Maria for 18 years. Prior to his role Tim was the Pastor of Generational Discipleship at Hillcrest Covenant Church in the Kansas City area. He earned his MDiv from North Park Theological Seminary and has been serving in the church for over 24 years. Tim is passionate about people finding and following Jesus!
