Our Methods

  • Boys love sports where they are a valued member. We offer a wide variety of sports merits where boys can be "hands on" and can apply their leadership qualities.

  • Modeling practical skills that allow Rangers to take on "guy" tasks helps them know that they have what it takes to be a man. Empower the boy at your side.

  • Whether you are designing, building, or playing with technology, guys just like gadgets. Use technology as a tool we can use to relate to the next generation of boys.

Outdoors

Royal Rangers has made many changes to create greater flexibility for a growing number of churches looking for cross-generational discipleship ministries that could be custom fit to the unique needs of each church and community. 

A broader activity-base is now called for so churches can influence a greater number and a more diverse group of boys and young men. Today, our activities include:

  • Outdoor Skills
  • Sports
  • Trades
  • Technologies
  • Arts

The purpose of these is to establish mentoring relationships because men and boys develop friendships and much needed confidence by doing things together side-by-side. Relationships enable men to accomplish mission.  

Beyond teaching the boys in your class a merit, take the boys into the great outdoors to instil/nurture their love of the wild! Below is a number of resources for you to use to spend time building relationships side-by-side.
