Royal Rangers

Royal Rangers is the ultimate indoor and outdoor spiritual adventure for boys! The goal of this ministry is to help boys grow in four ways: spiritually through Bible study, scripture memorization, and devotionals; mentally by an advanced award-based weekly program; physically by participation in activities and recreation such as camping and learning outdoor survival techniques; and socially by being introduced to church, community, and nature-related activities. Dedicated leaders provide direction during our Tuesday night outpost meetings in our church, which are designed to develop the total boy for Christ.

Boys are divided into four groups:

Ranger Kids – Kindergarten through Second grade
Includes a challenging and fun advancement system encouraging boys through indoor and outdoor activities and games. The weekly lessons and objectives help reinforce godly principles in their daily lives, and they will have opportunities to achieve many advancement awards that can be placed on an awards vest and worn each week as part of the official Royal Rangers uniform.

Discovery Rangers – Third through Fifth grade
Features an exciting premier advancement system. In this system boys will learn through camping and non-camping activities. An emphasis is placed on learning at their own pace in a merit-based curriculum.

Adventure Rangers – Sixth through Eighth grade
Participate in more challenging camping and outdoor activities while emphasizing skill development, advanced camping, Junior Leadership Training, Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship (FCF), and Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals with national recognition.

Expedition Rangers – Ninth through Twelfth grade
This is considered a high action-packed adventure trail in which the boy is further challenged by advanced camping, camp craft skills, and ministry opportunities. These activities offer boys in this age group ways to become more self-reliant and develop confidence and a greater appreciation of God. Several advancement programs are available including Air Rangers, Sea Rangers, Trail Rangers, Junior Chaplancy, High Action Rangers, Junior Leadership Academyopportunities and more. Boys will be challenged to serve through Home Missions, Foreign Missions, Youth Ministry, and Men’s Ministry.
