Boys & Young Men // Grades K–12

Mentoring future leaders to discover and become
the men God intended them to be. 

Rangers meet every Wednesday night to fellowship with other boys and get training for the incredible Christian adventures that lie ahead of them. This fun and highly-relational program has been tailored to meet to physical, spiritual and social needs of boys in every age group. Boys are encouraged to attend faithfully to earn rewards for completing the necessary Bible, leadership and skills training that will equip them to be effective future leaders of church ministry. Refer to this calendar regularly for updates on local as well as district-wide events.

As men and boys learn new skills and do things side-by-side, they are given opportunities to establish friendship – the bedrock of the mentoring relationship. While many of their peers stall out on the journey to adulthood, these boys and young men move into manhood with confidence and in relationship with their Heavenly Father and the Church. 


Learning what it takes to be a godly man.

Royal Rangers is a church-based mentoring ministry for future men. Discipleship in manhood is modeled by mentors who guide boys on a Bible-based journey to maturity in faith.

Boys study and apply what the Bible says about doctrine, sexuality/integrity, Biblical worldview, cultural issues, and Christlike Manhood.


Skilled mentors, trained in servant leadership development.

Guided by resources written specifically for boys of every age group, adult leaders are trained to create a growth environment so that Royal Rangers is a boy-led, adult-facilitated ministry. This empowers the boys to be less self-sufficient and more Christ-dependent. Less self-centered, more others-centered.


Royal Rangers has always been an integral part of Oak Creek Assembly of God and has produced scores of Christian leaders that actively serve in ministry today. We continue this tradition as we welcome over 200 boys in our Children's Wings every Wednesday night from 7pm
