Leader Training

The Royal Rangers program provides leader training to mobilize, inspire, and resource leaders to achieve their greatest success and effectiveness.  Royal Rangers training is based on three core values:

  1. Spiritual Development.  All classroom and event-based leadership training will have a spiritual emphasis.
  2. Ranger Skills Development.  Training will focus on the seven methods Royal Rangers use to minister to boys. Ranger skills are a key component of this success.
  3. Leadership Development.  Leadership development will be key as Royal Rangers moves to become a boy led, adult facilitated ministry.

It takes a leader to mentor new leaders. Training will help Royal Rangers strengthen its leadership core.

Church leadership believes that well trained leaders are the key to any ministry's success. Pastors understand that a trained volunteer is much more likely to commit their time and can be counted on to show up every week. For these reason, and others, the Royal Rangers program places a high priority on leader training.

Adult Leader Training

Adult leader training is available online as well as at district training events and at national camps & conferences.  As a leader completes their training, they can advance through each level of the Outpost Leader Advancement Levels (OLAL). Details can be found on the Adult Leader Training page.

Junior Leader Training

Junior leader training takes place in the outpost and on the district level. Outpost training involves the Junior Leader Foundations program and leadership merits. District training involves the Junior Leadership Training Academy and a series of Action Camps. Details can be found on the Junior Leader Training page.

Organizational Leader Training

The purpose of Royal Rangers Organizational Leadership Training is to challenge individuals in positions of service beyond the local level to grow spiritually, to develop well-rounded ministry competencies, and to enhance their leadership aptitudes. All organizational leaders are encouraged to begin in this training process as soon as possible following their appointment. The Organizational Leadership Training Chart provides a summary of this training process. Details can be found on the Organizational Leader Training page.
