Chartering season is underway; it opened August 15 and continues through October 31. While it’s true that chartering is open year-round, this is the window of time you are asked to renew so you can enjoy the benefits uninterrupted. (All charters not renewed by September 1 expire.)
The Outpost Locator is one of the newest chartering benefits. All you have to do to be listed and easily found by families looking for a church devoted to mentoring future men is charter. That simple. What great publicity! Plus you gain all the other benefits—the discounts, the newsletters, the promo kit loaded with resources (like banners and videos) for branding your outpost in the church and community, and so much more.
The best part of chartering is it makes you a partner in a ministry that is growing all across the nation and around the world. Each charter fuels the ministry, enabling us to influence more boys and young men than ever, more effectively than ever.
Thank you for mentoring future men!
PS – October 6-12 is Ranger Week. This is an ideal time to feature Rangers at your church, perform service projects, interact with potential mentors and members, and, of course, participate in the best hour of the year, the International Prayer Vigil. Click here for ideas and resources.

What is Royal Rangers?
Royal Rangers is a mentoring program for future men. We provide Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment. Our mission is to evangelize, equip, and empower the next generation of Christlike men and lifelong servant leaders.
Mentoring Future Men
We are prepared to take Royal Rangers to a whole new generation of future men, to the iPod generation. The iPod has three characteristics important to its users. These same qualities are reflected in Royal Rangers.
Mechanically, every iPod is the same. It is a robust electronic device designed to deliver high quality music. Royal Rangers is likewise a robust mentoring ministry that shapes future men into godly husbands and fathers and excellent servant leaders in every sphere of life. Royal Rangers is a tool that men and boys, serving together, can use to evangelize their world, equip the next generation of Christlike men, and empower them to become lifelong servant leaders.
Flexible & Effective
Functionally, each iPod is unique, reflecting the user’s choices and preferences in music and media. Royal Rangers is also highly flexible and agile, enabling each outpost to implement our effective discipleship process while reflecting the preferences and practices of its local church leaders to best impact the families in its communities.
Royal Rangers provides flexibility in…
- Activities - Outdoors, sports, trades, professions, arts, technology, and ministry.
- Cost - Royal Rangers offer cost effective options so every boy and church can participate.
An iPod is a device that is highly interconnected with other technologies. In a similar way, Royal Rangers is highly modular and interconnected, a complement to the ministries of any church. Royal Rangers serves as a compliment to other church ministries, such as…
- Boys & Girls Missionary Challenge (BGMC)
- Speed-the-Light (STL)
- Youth Ministries
- Men’s Ministries
- Girls Ministries
The Value of Royal Rangers
Royal Rangers provides an effective means of discipling boys and young men by utilizing direct personal relationships between men and boys, developed around a core of shared interests and experiences. Activity-based ministries are essential to the spiritual development of boys. (More)
Our History & Heritage

The Royal Rangers program is defined by the core principles upon which it was built. These core principles of evangelism, discipleship, leadership, achievement, and service are represented by our pledge, code, motto, and emblem.
