Ernest Champion

Royal Rangers Commander & Deacon

My name is Ernest Champion, and I have been the head Commander of the Royal Ranger group at River of Life Worship Center for over ten years.  The Royal Ranger mission is to reach, teach and keep boys for Christ. I enjoyed participating in this ministry for many years as a child and into my teen years. This positive experience is one that I wanted to pass on to other boys. We have many fun adventures in studying the Word of God, camping, fishing, other outdoor activities and our annual pinewood derby car race. Any questions about the Royal Ranger group can be directed to my email,

More about the Royal Rangers:

Royal Rangers is a mentoring program for future men.  We provide Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment.  Our mission is to evangelize, equip, and empower the next generation of Christlike men and lifelong servant leaders.

Mentoring Future Men

We are prepared to take Royal Rangers to a whole new generation of future men, to the iPod generation.  The iPod has three characteristics important to its users. These same qualities are reflected in Royal Rangers.

The Value of Royal Rangers

Royal Rangers provides an effective means of discipling boys and young men by utilizing direct personal relationships between men and boys, developed around a core of shared interests and experiences. Activity-based ministries are essential to the spiritual development of boys.

Core Principles

The Royal Rangers program is defined by the core principles upon which it was built.  These core principles of evangelism, discipleship, leadership, achievement, and service are represented by our pledge, code, motto, and emblem.  These principles can be displayed together using our program poster.
