About Royal Rangers


LOGO_Royal Rangers.jpg

The Royal Rangers program is an activity-based, small group church ministry for boys and young men in grades K-12.  Our mission is to evangelize, equip and empower the next generation of Christlike men and lifelong servant leaders. We provide Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment.

The Royal Rangers program is a cross-generational ministry that interconnects well with children, youth and adult ministries and fits easily into the fabric of pastoral vision and into the flow of church ministries.  We affirm the male hands-on, interactive learning style by featuring an intentional discipleship journey for boys and young men based on their unique design, needs and interests. Every meeting, outing or service activity is designed to encourage boys and young men in their walk with God.

We provide men with the tools to model Christlike manhood as they mentor boys on a Bible-based, Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered journey to maturity in the faith. Boys learn to study and apply what the Bible says about integrity, doctrine, biblical worldview, cultural issues and manhood. In addition, the Royal Rangers ministry molds boys into servant leaders, teaching them vital social, equipping, attitude, leadership and service skills.


Meeting weekly on Wednesday evenings at 7pm in the Children's Wing of HCC. For more information, please contact Royal Rangers Director, Wayne Newton or Community Kids Director, Michele Hyre.

Adventure Rangers Advancement Trail

Every great challenge a young man accepts helps to build his character, increase his determination to achieve, and improve his ability to set goals and fulfill them. The Adventure Rangers Advancement Trail offers such a challenge in the Trail to the Adventure Gold Award. 

The key to progressing on the Advancement Trail is earning merits. Each merit has a colored border, indicating its color group. After completing a specific number of merits in the required color groups, the Adventure Ranger can earn one of the Advancement awards. For example, the Advancement awards leading to the Adventure Bronze Award are the Powder Horn, Bowie Knife, Tomahawk, and Long Rifle.

After completing each set of steps and a few other requirements, the three medals he'll earn are:

  Adventure Bronze Award

Adventure
Bronze Award

  Adventure Silver Award

Adventure
Silver Award

  Adventure Gold Award

Adventure
Gold Award

There are several ways to earn the merits on the Adventure Rangers Advancement Trail. Some of the merits will be earned during the weekly meetings, while others will require extra effort outside of meeting times. The merits can be earned in any order, and while the Adventure Gold Award has specific merits that are required, the other merits that are earned are up to the individual Ranger's choice.

RANGER KIDS Advancement Trail

The Ranger Kids Advancement Trail is based on the needs, interest and characteristics of boys in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. The Trail is a plan of advancement through learning—from both experiences and activities—and being recognized for their learning. It is designed to offer every boy adventure and fun. The Trail is more than an interesting course of action; it is a new experience—a new achievement. It is a Ranger's opportunity to grow through new abilities, knowledge, and desires.

The Ranger Kids Advancement Trail is made up of three trails:

 E1 Award - typically earned after one full year of involvement in the program

Trail to the Elk

  Adventure Silver Award

Trail to the Wolverine

  Adventure Gold Award

Trail to the Cougar

To earn each trail's patch, the Ranger Kid must earn the four awards along the trail. For example, once a Ranger Kid has earned the Antelope Award, the Ram Award, the Caribou Award, and the Buffalo Award, he receives the Elk patch.  The boys can earn these awards in any order because they are all of equal value, not based on previous requirements.  The individual steps that the Ranger Kid must take to earn each award are directed to help him grow PHYSICALLY, SPIRITUALLY, MENTALLY, and SOCIALLY

DISCOVERY RANGERS Advancement Trail

Being a Discovery Ranger will give a boy many chances to do new things. He will learn new skills, like camping, building models, giving first aid, and cooking while learning about God and His Word. Royal Rangers will give him the chance to be rewarded for finishing merits and steps on the Advancement Trail.

Here's how the trail works. As the boy follows the trail, will grow to new heights on the "Trail to the Gold Eagle." He'll work on merits, and every time he finishes a set of merit requirements, he will receive a new patch. As he earns merits he will also have the chance to complete a new advancement step.

After completing each set of steps and a few other requirements, he'll have a chance to earn three medals:

 

 E1 Award - typically earned after one full year of involvement in the program

Gold Falcon

  Adventure Silver Award

Gold Hawk

  Adventure Gold Award

Gold Eagle

There are several ways to earn the merits on the Trail to the Eagle. Some of the merits will be earned during the weekly meetings, while others will require extra effort outside of meeting times. The merits can be earned in any order, and while the Gold Eagle has specific merits that are required, the other merits that are earned are up to the individual Ranger's choice.
