The Seven Experiences
Royal Rangers uses seven experiences to guide boys on their journey to godly manhood. You can easily customize any of these experiences to reflect your church’s vision, preferences and practices.
- CONNECT WITH A COMMUNITY OF GODLY MEN
Boys and men build relationships side by side as they do activities together. Regular, consistent interaction between boys and men is key.
- DO FUN ACTIVITIES TOGETHER
Boys want to participate in a variety of activities, and the Royal Rangers ministry features a vast collection of resources to support their interests. Leaders are encouraged to plan a wide range of activities to appeal to a broad spectrum of boys.
- GROW IN CHRISTLIKE MANHOOD
The Royal Rangers advancement system is an outcome-based discipleship journey. Boys and young men are encouraged to earn special recognition in each group, quarterly and annually. The system intentionally connects the Royal Rangers discipleship process to the boys’ journey to manhood—adventure, character and task.
- LEARN IN INTERACTIVE WAYS
Boys learn best when they hear instruction, see it demonstrated, immediately do it themselves, and when appropriate, have the opportunity to teach others.
- BELONG TO SOMETHING BIG
Boys and young men want to feel as though they are part of a winning team or program. Attire contributes to a sense of belonging, to a sense of being part of something bigger than self.
- LEAD YOURSELF AND OTHERS
The Royal Rangers program provides boys and young men with opportunities to learn and practice leadership skills that will help make their God-given dreams a reality.
- SERVE YOUR FAMILY, CHURCH AND COMMUNITY
The Royal Rangers program encourages and provides tools for boys to make a difference in the world around them.
