My son has Down Syndrome, but that is not what defines him. He serves each week as a junior leader in the Royal Rangers group I lead. I cannot begin to express the important role Royal Rangers has played in his personal development and self-worth. What an awesome ministry!
Bruce Witt Leader and father - Wisconsin / Northern Michigan District Council
I credit Royal Rangers for a lot of what I am doing today. Royal Rangers provided an extended family and a feeling that I wasn’t alone when at times I felt I was. Rangers provided stability and security. It was so incredibly valuable to us to know that there were people who really cared about us and believed we had a future.
Hal Donaldson Cofounder and CEO - international disaster-relief agency Convoy of Hope
Using Royal Rangers in our church reached out to our schools and neighborhoods in untraditional ways. Utilizing Ranger Derby races and bicycles giveaways, we regularly ministered to hundreds of children who didn’t even attend our church.

I never really realized I didn’t have a father around because I had my Royal Rangers leaders. I needed a godly man’s influence, and my Royal Rangers leaders filled that role. I always felt bad for the other kids because they only had one dad and I had six!
Doug Clay General Treasurer of the Assemblies of God
For 17 years, I had the privilege of leading Royal Rangers in the three churches where I was a pastor. Families were added to our church as their boys became a part of this ministry and their parents followed.

For more than 50 years, churches all across the country have used the Royal Rangers program to impact their communities by reaching boys.
Royal Rangers uses seven experiences to guide boys on their journey to godly manhood. You can easily customize any of these experiences to reflect your church’s vision, preferences and practices.
Boys and men build relationships side by side as they do activities together. Regular, consistent interaction between boys and men is key.
Boys want to participate in a variety of activities, and the Royal Rangers ministry features a vast collection of resources to support their interests. Leaders are encouraged to plan a wide range of activities to appeal to a broad spectrum of boys.
The Royal Rangers advancement system is an outcome-based discipleship journey. Boys and young men are encouraged to earn special recognition in each group, quarterly and annually. The system intentionally connects the Royal Rangers discipleship process to the boys’ journey to manhood—adventure, character and task.
Boys learn best when they hear instruction, see it demonstrated, immediately do it themselves, and when appropriate, have the opportunity to teach others.
Boys and young men want to feel as though they are part of a winning team or program. Attire contributes to a sense of belonging, to a sense of being part of something bigger than self.
The Royal Rangers program provides boys and young men with opportunities to learn and practice leadership skills that will help make their God-given dreams a reality.
The Royal Rangers program encourages and provides tools for boys to make a difference in the world around them.
