The Royal Rangers
The Royal Rangers is the auxiliary of the Men’s Ministry. Its objective is to train the youth to grow up and take over the leadership mantle of our nation, society and church when the older generation is no more. We believe that how a person is brought up will affect his character and leadership qualities.
Hence, based on Proverbs 22:6 and Luke 2:52, the R.R. group aims at reaching out to all boys inside and outside the church, teaching them how to be effective leaders and providing them with avenues to explore their talents. Royal Rangers is a world-wide boys ministry designed to reach, teach and keep boys for Jesus Christ. It was created by the Assemblies of God in 1962, and has grown to more nations than ever imagined.
Our numbers keep growing daily! We are currently in more than 50 countries world wide
To instruct, Challenge and inspire boys in the area of Bible doctrine, Christian service, moral conduct, and basic beliefs of our church through means of interesting activities the boys enjoy.

ADVENTURING IN THE OUT-OF-DOORS HIKING
There is nothing like the adventure of hiking along a wilderness trail through the woods, along a leaf covered path that wanders along a stream. hear the sounds of birds in the air, seeing nature, animals scurrying through the woods – a new discovery around every turn.
There is nothing like the adventure of getting out of doors, finding a good camping spot by a stream, pitching your tent. building a campfire, cooking meals over it, setting around a council fire at night singing songs and telling stories.
Realizing a boys basic desires for outdoor adventure, camping and hiking have been placed high on the list of activities for Royal Rangers. To enjoy these experiences, a Royal Ranger should learn to take on himself in the out of doors safely and comfortably. For this reason he should learn skills in rope craft, sanitation, shelter and equipment, fire craft and cooking. The Royal Ranger Standards
