Adopting a growth mentality.
For seventeen years I had the privilege of leading Royal Rangers in the three churches where I was pastor. Families were added to our church as their boys became a part of this ministry and their parents followed.

Rangers made a difference in Robert.
My son Robert has Down Syndrome, but that is not what defines him. He has earned his GMA and has graduated from the Leadership Training Academy. He is currently serving with me in Discovery Rangers as a junior leader. I cannot begin to express what an important role Royal Rangers has been on his development and self worth. What an awesome ministry!

Effective outreach.
What if our traditional church reached out in untraditional ways? Central AG in Springfield, MO has been doing just that. Using Royal Rangers, the church has reached out to the public schools in the area using Ranger Derby and bicycle give-aways to minister to hundreds of children who don't even attend their church.
Springfield, MO
After school.
What if education moved beyond books and into life? In Camden, NJ, the murder capital of the United States, a group of Royal Rangers are partnering with a charter school to change the lives of its students. Utilizing Royal Rangers as an after school program, dozens of boys are being ministered to as their behavior and grades improve while Christ begins to reign in their lives.

Gaining a father.
What if the fatherless gained a father? The Rock Family Worship Center in Huntsville, AL have been using Royal Rangers as an outreach to the disenfranchised communities in the area. Every Tuesday night they bus in over 80 boys from low-income government housing neighborhoods, feed them, and teach them how to be godly men. On Wednesday nights they offer Royal Rangers to their regular attendees.
