Royal Rangers is a ministry of Askewville Assembly of God.

The mission of Royal Rangers is to provide a platform to evangelize boys for Christ, equip them to become the next generation of Christ like men, and empower them for service as lifelong servant leaders.

The purpose of Royal Rangers is to mentor and shape the boys lives with Godly direction and character while teaching life skills.

The vision of Royal Rangers is to evangelize, equip, and empower them to become the Christian men GOD wants them to be.

The mission, purpose and vision of the Askewville Royal Rangers Program is met through learning Bible based codes, pledges, mottos, having devotions and prayer time as well as offering a variety of activities and exercises that are fun for the boys.

 The Royal Rangers program is built on the premise that learning should be fun and interactive. Learning in Royal Rangers therefore follows a “hear-see-do-teach” mentoring process where boys hear instruction on a topic, sees the skill demonstrated, and are given the opportunity to do it themselves. Then, as their skills improve, they are given the opportunity to teach others, further developing their own understanding of the material.
