Boys, Royal Rangers


The Royal Rangers program is an activity-based, small group church ministry for boys and young men in grades K-12.  Our mission is to evangelize, equip and empower the next generation of Christ-like men and lifelong servant leaders. We provide Christ-like character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment.

The Royal Rangers program is a cross-generational ministry that interconnects well with children, youth and adult ministries and fits easily into the fabric of pastoral vision and into the flow of church ministries.  We affirm the male hands-on, interactive learning style by featuring an intentional discipleship journey for boys and young men based on their unique design, needs and interests. Every meeting, outing or service activity is designed to encourage boys and young men in their walk with God.

We provide men with the tools to model Christ-like manhood as they mentor boys on a Bible-based, Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered journey to maturity in the faith. Boys learn to study and apply what the Bible says about integrity, doctrine, biblical worldview, cultural issues and manhood. In addition, the Royal Rangers ministry molds boys into servant leaders, teaching them vital social, equipping, attitude, leadership and service skills.

Our Royal Rangers program is referred to as an "outpost".  Each group follows a program of activities based on the interests and abilities of boys in that group.

Girls Ministries


What is Girls Ministries? Girls Ministries is a church-based discipleship program that has a legacy of godly women coming alongside girls, guiding them on a path to become mature and godly women. Our goal is simple: To see every girl moving toward a deep relationship with Jesus Christ, and to realize her importance and potential in the kingdom of God.

What Makes Girls Ministries Different? Girl's Ministries discipleship program is the premier program for preschool through high school girls in the world. No other girl's ministry program has our variety of activities, focused discipleship track, or a 60-plus-year proven track record of helping girls become confident, godly women who are leaders in the church, home, and world.

Why Gender-Specific? Research shows girls learn more quickly and deeply when they are taught by a role model. Girls need a real-life example. When a girl understands what it means to be a godly woman, she aspires to the design that God intended. A single-gender classroom has many benefits, but the greatest of these is for a girl to feel safe and secure in her discovery of who God intended her to be.

Join the Club: If you're looking for a girl's ministry that seamlessly weaves fun and biblical training together, Girls Ministries Clubs are for you! Your girls will get: 

• Adventures, activities, and games that show them how discovering God's Word is fun! 

• Lessons in valuable life skills from sportsmanship and integrity, to cooking and outreach.

• One-on-one help in choosing actions, attitudes, and behaviors that please God.

The Bottom Line: Relationships Girls encounter challenging situations as they grow up. By intentionally fostering relationships between girls and leaders through Girls Clubs, you can create a safe environment for girls to discuss issues they face and get godly counsel. Most importantly, Girls Ministries Girls Clubs show each girl that God loves her and wants a relationship with her.
