New National Director Appointed

September 2, 2014

Karl Fleig (pronounced Flike), District Men's Ministries and Christian Education Director for the Indiana district of the Assemblies of God, has been appointed as the new National Director of Royal Rangers. Karl replaces Doug Marsh who announced in April that he would be transitioning into full-time leadership of Royal Rangers International, the AGWM ministry Doug began in 2002 to expand the ministry of Royal Rangers around the world.

Karl comes into his new role with over 13 years of leadership expereince in the Indiana district office which included oversight of the Royal Rangers program there.  His district responsibilites included men’s ministry, discipleship, kids’ camps, and more.  He has been very active in Royal Rangers for many years, attending numerous national LEAD conferences and other national events.

This transition promises to continue the strong relatiionship between Royal Rangers USA and Royal Rangers International.  Both Karl and Doug have a passion for mentoring the next generation and will work well together to strengthen this ministry globally.

Royal Rangers continues it ongoing purpose to mentor boys and young men, providing Christlike character formation and servant leadership development 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.


Message from New National Director Karl Fleig

September 2014

I’m coming into this position at a great time. Royal Rangers has seen many changes over the last several years, and as a result, we are better equipped, more relevant, and poised for our greatest days. Our last Camporama in 2012 was the largest ever. New outposts are being chartered every month, and churches that haven’t had Rangers in a while are coming back. Just a month and a half ago, the largest Rendezvous ever was held at Camp Eagle Rock! Director Marsh and the national team have done a tremendous job; we owe them a huge debt of gratitude.

It’s because of their hard work we get to do the fun stuff! As I continue to get settled into the position, I feel our focus needs be on stability and growth! We have had many necessary changes and improvements in recent years. We now need to provide additional assistance to outposts in understanding and implementing them to ensure everyone in Rangers experiences the benefits they bring. Secondly, we will focus on growth. As mentioned above, we are already experiencing the benefits of the last few years. As others continue to embrace and understand the Rangers ministry, we will continue to see even more!

I loved the theme of the last Assemblies of God General Council, “Believe.” This year the Assemblies of God celebrates its 100th anniversary, commemorating when 300 gathered, believing God to raise up a movement for “the greatest evangelism the world has ever seen.” We are part of the Church that believes in “...Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine...” (Eph. 3:20).

Royal Rangers is the result of an individual who dreamed and believed. Johnnie Barnes started it, but the reason Rangers still exists and thrives today is because every man and woman involved in the ministry since then still believes. They believe that God has a plan for them and that they can make a difference. They believe that they can do all things through Christ and that evangelizing, equipping and empowering the next generation of Christlike men and lifelong servant leaders is possible. They believe because He who began a good work in them will bring it to completion and that influencing more boys and young men than ever, more effectively than ever is going to happen! Never has there been a time that so desperately needs what we do. I believe God has positioned the Royal Rangers ministry for such a time as this. I’m excited and ready! Thank you to each of you for what you do. Our future isn’t up to one person, but together, infused with the Holy Spirit, our best days are ahead!

Together in His Service,

Karl Fleig
National Director of Royal Rangers
