The mission of Royal Rangers is to evangelize, equip and empower the next generation of Christ-like men and lifelong servant leaders. We provide Christ-like character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment. The Royal Rangers program is an activity-based, small group church ministry offered on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm in the Family Life Center for boys and young men from kindergarten to eighth grade.
This is a great program for boys in kindergarten, first, and second grades, located upstairs in the Main Building. The Ranger Kids Advancement Trail is based on the needs, interests, and characteristics of young boys. The Trail is a plan of advancement through learning from both experiences and activities, and being recognized for their learning. It is designed to offer every boy adventure and fun. The Trail is more than an interesting course of action; it is a new experience, a new achievement. It is a Ranger’s opportunity to grow through new abilities, knowledge, and desires.
Discovery Rangers is an exciting journey for boys from third to fifth grade. You'll find it in the Family Life Center. Being a Discovery Ranger will give a boy many chances to do new things. He will learn new skills, like camping, building models, giving first aid, and cooking, while also learning about God and His Word. Royal Rangers will give him the chance to be rewarded for finishing merits and steps on the Advancement Trail.
Royal Rangers has a more challenging path for boys as they approach manhood. Have your sixth to eighth graders meet us in the Family Life Center to embark on their journey. Every great challenge a young man accepts helps to build his character, increase his determination to achieve, and improve his ability to set goals and fulfill them. The Adventure Rangers Advancement Trail offers such a challenge - the Trail to the Gold Medal of Achievement. It is a plan to help you earn the Gold Medal of Achievement (GMA), a medal of great distinction and honor. It was first offered in 1964 and the tradition continues to this day.
