Royal Rangers is an activity-based, boy-led, adult facilitated boys mentoring ministry for boys in grades K-12 providing "Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment." A camping theme is at the heart of most activities, along with a merit award system whereby Royal Rangers must demonstrate specific knowledge and abilities. Since 1962, this program developed by Rev. Johnnie Barnes has since spread to churches in over 90 other nations. The uniforms, mottoes, practices and operation borrow heavily from Scouting, but the underlying values are somewhat different. The General Council of the Assemblies of God runs Royal Rangers USA in the United States and Royal Rangers International is an official mission of the council.
