The fundamental goal of training is to inspire, mobilize, and resource leaders to empower them to achieve their greatest success and effectiveness.

Royal Rangers training is based on three core values:

* Spiritual Development

All classroom and event-based leadership training will have a spiritual emphasis.

* Ranger Skills Development

Training will focus on the seven methods Royal Rangers use to minister to boys. Ranger skills are a key component of this success.

* Leadership Development

Leadership development will be key as Royal Rangers moves to become a boy led, adult facilitated ministry.

It takes a leader to mentor new leaders. Training will help Royal Rangers strengthen its leadership core.

Church leadership believes that well trained leaders are the key to any ministry’s success. Pastors understand that a trained volunteer is much more likely to commit their time and can be counted on to show up every week. For these reason, and others, the Royal Rangers program places a high priority on leader training.


What Does OLAL Stand For?

OLAL or Outpost Leader Advancement Levels are a streamlined training process with clear objectives and achievable goals. These combine local training offered by the district and national training events designed to equip leaders with the skills needed to be an effective leader in the local outpost.


How Do I Get Trained?

You have many opportunities throughout the year to receive training in South Texas. These events will be published on our training calendar and updated throughout the year. In addition you can sign up to receive our newsletter which provides details on training opportunities.


What order to I need to be trained in?

The training elements do not have to be taken in any specific order. As training elements are available to you, take them so you don’t delay your training process. For example, if Ranger Essentials is available before Ranger Basics, or First Aid/CPR before you take Ranger Safety online, take the available course. Also, if WCO is available before NRMC or NEEC, take it.
