We are coming into the tail end of a very full year. From our NW Region Connect Conference, to our FCF and Ranger Camps, to our almost 10,000 miles traveled by the training team for 2 NRMC's a National Academy, and Lead Conference, our district has completed all it set out to do in events this year. God has been good to the Southern Idaho District and we are looking ahead with anticipation to all of those things that will be ready and waiting for us next year. In the meantime, we have something exciting that we would like to share.
For those outposts and boys that are looking to teach a green merit, we would like to suggest teaching the Global Missions merit. A requirement in this merit is that two district mission events are attended, one of the accepted being a Light for the Lost banquet. (LFTL) "Since we have the LFTL Banquet Tour happening this month I wanted to let the commanders know that they could bring their boys to a LFTL Banquet in their area to help the boys obtain this merit. We just need to know in advance that they are going to be there." Says Rev. James Dunn, former pastor of Caldwell's Church of the Domes, and current director for So. Idaho LFTL events. "The banquet cost $10.00 per person if they want to eat, but arrangements could be made for them to arrive in time to hear Bro. Doyle Fulkes present LFTL."

Royal Rangers is a mentoring program for future men. We provide Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment. Our mission is to evangelize, equip, and empower the next generation of Christlike men and lifelong servant leaders.
Welcome to 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 Christlike men, and lifelong servant leaders. We provide Christlike 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 Christlike 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.
The Royal Rangers program at a local church is referred to as an "outpost" and may consist of one or more groups. Each group follows a program of activities based on the interests and abilities of boys in that group. The links below provide details on the advancement system used in each group:
| Ranger Kids
Grades K - 2
| Discovery Rangers
Grades 3 - 5
| Adventure Rangers
Grades 6 - 8
| Expedition Rangers
Grades 9 - 12
