"Rangers is much more than awarding medals" according to Jody Smith, Adventure Rangers leader, "it's about mentoring future Christian leaders". And that is exactly what Oak Creek AG strives to do. Evidence of how they equip boys and young men for ministry is evident. During the morning service, a Ranger operates one of the TV cameras - one of the skills tought by Rangers. Another is setting up the banquet tables while his friends usher parents and guests to their seats. During the ceremony, one of the medalists explain how the Expedition Rangers are building a tree house as part of the set for the church's Christmas musical.
"Rangers certainly has come a long way and we are building relationships with one another like never before" Smith added.
Gerry Krebsbach, our District Director was present to award one Ranger Kid his Gold Trail, three Discovery Ranger Gold Eagle awards, four bronze medals, three silver and the prestigous Gold Medal of Achievement to Noah Kelly.
