ROYAL RANGERS - OP #63
Hello and warm Christian greeting form the Commanders and boys of outpost #63.
Royal Rangers is a Christian ministry affiliated with the Assemblies of GOD church. The ministry’s goal is to “Equip, Evangelize, and Empower the next generation of Christ-like boys and servant leaders”. It has been in exists for over fifty- (50) years and is in over eighty-(80) countries around the world. It started in 1962 when the LORD called Commander Johnnie Barnes to start a Christian camping ministry for boys. The program used to reach the goal has been review and updated to meet the many challenges and needs of the boys today and getting Rangers ready for the 21th century.
An outpost are the boys and commanders affiliated with their local church. It is part of a local section and joins in with the other churches/outposts to provide events and activities for the boys. The sections come together as a district to provide additional ways to keep boys interested in Rangers. The focus of all these activities/events is to draw boys closer to the LORD by a devotion, pageant, or being a GODLY example. Prayerfully the boys will realize that GOD needs to be number one in their lives and dedicate their hearts to the LORD.
There are four (4) different age groups in Rangers. Ranger Kids is for boys from kindergarten to 2nd grade, Discovery for 3rd to 5th graders, Adventures for 6th to 8th graders, and Expedition for 9th to 12th graders. Boys become Lieutenant Commanders at eighteen (18) years old and Commanders at twenty-one (21) years of age. Just as there are, many opportunities for boys to learn camping skills, trades, sports, and leadership, commanders have a number of training options available to them to advance and learn how to teach both boys and other commanders.
Here is part of what the Rangers use to “Equip, Evangelize, and Empower” the boys:
