2012 Royal Rangers Going Forward

Remembering our Elder Tom Bender, a great supporter, friend, and active member of Outpost 207.  We miss you Elder Bender.

What a year 2011!  Let's see what God has in store for Outpost 207 in 2012!

Yes, we have some changes and challenges, but His Word at work in us and for us will propel us forward to what the vision reveals in 2012.  With scheduling changes come adjustments as to how we accomplish the goals and expectations of "mentoring men for the future", but always know our mission has not changed for "reaching, teaching, and keeping boys for Christ".  We will continue to evangelize, equip, and empower boys to be lifelong servants of God.

With the support of our Children's Ministries leadership under the direction of our Pastor, we will move forward to provide the training, ministry, activities of interest to the boys, and certainly providing opportunity for boys to gain leadership experience.  Our Royal Ranger leaders are already planning on ways to implement the word in all we do this year, following the directive of our Pastor to put first priority on the Word, reading through the bible this year.  Our boys have full opportunity to not only read the Word, but receive merit awards for each book read.

This year, 2012, is the 50th Anniversary of Royal Rangers, nationally, and as such we are planning to attend the 2012 National Camporama in Eagle Rock, Missouri in July.  Camporama, is held every four years, but this year will be special, with the celebration of 50 years of Royal Rangers, active all over the United States and around the world.  We are encouraging as many as can to attend this exciting camp of ministry, fun and adventure, to include fellowship with Rangers from all over the nation and world.

There is much to do and few hands to do it, but we trust God will bless the work of all the hands attending to this great ministry.  We want to invite every man who has a heart for boys and who will give some time each week to our boys, to join us.  Training will come, but only if there are men who will come to receive it and then run with it.  The rewards may only be known in eternity, but, it only takes one boy won to Christ or seeing a boys life changed, to remind us of the importance of mentoring future men for Christ.
