New Outpost Leader Orientation Guide

The National office put together an Outpost Leader Orientation program, a valuable tool for local outposts that will result in equipped leaders aligned with the vision of the ministry. The program serves as a quick introduction to Royal Rangers, guiding the new leader through onboarding and consists of 4 easy requirements to be completed by the leader. This includes meeting with the pastor who oversees the Royal Rangers ministry in the church.

On completion, the new Commander will receive a Certificate of Completion from the District Director and will be placed on our communications lists so that he or she can be informed of upcoming district training events and will have access to the district staff for support and further guidance as needed.
