We are excited to announce that John W. Hembree has been approved by the Assemblies of God leadership as the new Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship national coordinator. He has served as the interim coordinator since July 2018 when the national coordinator, Paul Walters, passed away suddenly.
Experienced leaders realize that one of the most appealing aspects of Royal Rangers is the activities they enjoy outside the weekly meeting. Meetings are important and form the backbone of any Royal Rangers program, but a consistent program of diverse activities will bring energy and excitement to an outpost like nothing else.
National Director Karl Fleig and I will be leading a Pathfinder Team to Kenya in early March 2018 to finish the first floor of the Royal Rangers East Africa Training Center. The team will be doing work like tiling floors, painting the walls, hanging light fixtures, and even building bunkbeds to make the main building fully operational.
Christmas is coming and now is the time of year when our minds turn to finding ways to show our affection or appreciation to those special friends and family who enrich our lives. If your circle of friends includes a Rangers guy, we’ve got some gift ideas you might be interested in. These could also be worth considering as appreciation gifts to all the Royal Rangers leaders in your outpost as a way of saying thank you for another year of investing in the lives of our boys.
The 2018 National Royal Rangers LEAD Conference will include a Centershot archery instructor’s certification course, provided by our National Shooting Sports Program (NSSP) leadership team. This 8-hour course is open to anyone age 18 or older and will provide attendees with Centershot archery certification to enable them to conduct safe archery events in their districts or outposts.
