What is Royal Rangers?
Royal Rangers is a mentoring ministry and program for future men. We provide Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment. Our mission is to evangelize, equip, and empower the next generation of Christlike men and lifelong servant leaders.
How do we start an Outpost?
We initially discuss the general basics of what Royal Rangers is and basics of starting an Outpost begins with an initial visit to the church with the anticipated leaders, Men’s Ministries leaders and members, Pastor, Youth Pastors, other interested persons, etc. This initial meeting may be either a formal presentation to your church body on a Sunday morning or other group meeting time. Or a less formal meeting on a time scheduled by the Pastor (i.e. Saturday morning, weeknight, etc.). The first major step in starting an Outpost is knowing what to do and that foundation is built through our great training, firstly Ranger Basics and the new Essentials training course.
What is Ranger Basics?
Ranger Basics is the first level of training that familiarizes prospective leaders with what Royal Rangers is, it’s history, how an Outpost functions, chartering an Outpost, various age levels, curriculum and advancements, uniforms, etc. and most importantly how to lead a boy to Christ. The course lasts approximately 8 hours and is coordinated through the conference staff and by experienced certified instructors. We will coordinate a Ranger Basics course with your church on an available day (Saturday is best) with your church hosting (providing facilities, coordinating lunch, promoting with your church members and prospective leaders, promoting with other local churches for their interest in the training, etc.). After this Ranger Basics course, your church will have the foundation to start your Outpost as well as knowledge of continuing into the various additional training levels and courses.
