Boys today are under assault. Ongoing cultural changes and the powerful influence of a secular media have created an environment where the path to manhood is no longer clear, and many boys are losing their way. Dr. James Dobson, nationally-acclaimed family counselor, author, and founder of the Focus on the Family radio program, warns, “Now, more than ever, boys are experiencing a crisis of confidence that reaches deep within their soul”. The Royal Rangers program provides an effective means of discipling boys by utilizing direct personal relationships between men and boys, developed around a core of shared interests and experiences. In order for the Church to fulfill its mission to make disciples of all nations, it’s essential that our boys be mentored by the Church’s community of godly men through an intentional process of growth and discipleship. Royal Rangers provides an excellent tool for engaging the men and boys of your church and community in the ongoing process of building Christlike men.
Royal Rangers is a ministry that reaches across the United States and in over 90 nations around the world. It motivates boys spiritually through Bible study and memorization, devotionals, and Christian role models. Boys are strengthened mentally by an advanced awards-based weekly program. Further, the boys increase their physical prowess by participation in age-specific activities and recreation. Finally, they are introduced to church, community, and nature-related activities to develop their social skills and awareness.
