The Royal Rangers ministry is nearly 50 years old and many leaders have reached retirement age or have medical issues, commitments or other situations that keep them from serving as a Royal Rangers commander. Royal Rangers is now a ministry for all ages; you must be 5 years old to join the Rangers Kids program, and you must be 55 years old to join the Royal Rangers Alumni (RRA) program.
Our objective for the RRA program is to provide a method by which RR leaders (age 55 plus) may continue to serve as a vital part of the Royal Rangers Ministry. RRA provides an opportunity for leaders to share their knowledge, expertise and experiences with boys and local commanders. The RRA provides the opportunity for you to continue to be involved in Rangers as your time permits.
Many times we have made the statement that the mission of Royal Rangers is: "To Reach, Teach and Keep Boys for Jesus Christ." There are still many boys that need to be reached for Jesus Christ and you can be a vital part of reaching boys for Christ.
Royal Rangers leaders upon reaching retirement age or when medical problems, or other reasons prohibit them from serving as a commander, may feel they no longer have a part in the Royal Rangers ministry. This is certainly not the case, as many of these leaders have a wealth of knowledge and experiences and are willing and able to serve on a limited basis.
The Royal Rangers Alumni will provide the structure by which these Royal Rangers leaders may continue to be a vital part of Royal Rangers and provide assistance to their districts or sections on their time schedule.
It is further recognized that people in the retirement age bracket frequently develop medically problems, loneliness or other situations and they need our fellowship, prayers and support.
