Royal Rangers Ministry for Boys

Our Royal Rangers boys’ ministry group meets on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in our Activities Building. Under the strong, caring leadership and examples of godly men, our boys are mentored, earning merit badges and achievement awards as they learn about how to live a life that honors Jesus.

Royal Rangers is an activity-based, small-group church ministry for boys in grades K-5 providing “Christlike character formation and servant leadership development in a highly relational and fun environment.”


Mike Besmer is our Royal Rangers Lieutenant Commander of Outpost 248 here at New Bethel Assembly.

Purpose of the Royal Rangers Ministry:
*  To evangelize boys for Christ
*  To Develop the total boy for Christ (spiritually, physically, mentally and socially)
*  To keep boys in our churches

Royal Rangers ministers to boys through Bible study and memorization, devotionals, outdoor and camping activities, and Christian roles. 

A highlight for the whole church is the annual Pinewood Derby, where boys and adults alike can craft a race car from a block of pinewood and compete in a fun afternoon of racing.
