RR History

Royal Rangers is a worldwide ministry of the Assemblies of God and is designed to provide youth with challenging activities while providing them with Christian instruction. Royal Rangers Began in the United States in 1962 and has spread to various christian denominations as well as globally, with over 73 countries involved in developing the future leaders of tomorrow.
In January 1962, Rev. Johnnie Barnes moves to Springfield, Missouri, to put together a program for boys. Rev. Charles Scott suggests the name “Royal Rangers.” Rev. Barnes becomes the first Royal Rangers national commander. The first pilot program is conducted at Webster Park A/G in Springfield, MO, with a second unofficial pilot program conducted at Bethel A/G, also in Springfield, using the same materials.

The Singapore Royal Rangers started way back in 1977 with the formation of their very first outpost, Singapore Outpost 1 at Bethel Assembly of God.

The Singapore National Royal Rangers office was officially set up in the early-80′s by our first National Commander Rev. Nicholas Choo. Commander Nicholas was also instrumental in starting Outpost 1 back in 1977.

Commander Roy Tay was our second National Commander, who has later handed the leadership over to Commander Chia Eng Kiat in 2001.
