From Former USA National Director- Doug Marsh

I'm pleased to pass along this announcement from Mark Entzminger that Karl S Fleig has been selected by the Executive Leadership Team of the Assemblies of God to lead Royal Rangers USA into another exciting season of ministry. I couldn't be more pleased that Karl has accepted the call to be national director. I pledge my full support and friendship and invite you to do the same. Congratulations, Karl!


Dear Royal Rangers Leaders,

In April, we announced that Doug Marsh would be transitioning into full-time leadership of Royal Rangers International. Since that time, we have been in ongoing conversations with leaders from around the nation as we have prayerfully considered candidates that have been submitted for USA director of Royal Rangers.

We are excited to share with you that Karl Fleig, former Indiana district CE and men’s director, has accepted our invitation to lead this critical discipleship ministry. Karl was brought to the minds of key leaders independent of one another and then confirmed in what could only be described as a supernatural calling. 

Karl comes with over 13 years of leadership in the Indiana district office and has been involved in varying degrees of Royal Rangers for longer than that. His district role had him involved in men’s ministry, discipleship, kids’ camp, and more. He was very active in Royal Rangers, including attending LEAD and other national trainings for a number of years.

I would like to commend both Karl Fleig and Doug Marsh on their commitment to a strong transition and a healthy relationship of Royal Rangers USA and Royal Rangers International. Both of these men have a passion for mentoring the next generation and will work well together to strengthen this ministry globally.

Please feel free to communicate with Karl through email at or by phone at 417-862-2781 x.4181 to share your congratulations and support.

Mark Entzminger

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:
