Dear Royal Rangers Leaders,

In April, we announced that Doug Marsh would be transitioning into full-time leadership of Royal Rangers International. Since that time, we have been in ongoing conversations with leaders from around the nation as we have prayerfully considered candidates that have been submitted for USA director of Royal Rangers.

We are excited to share with you that Karl Fleig, former Indiana district CE and men’s director, has accepted our invitation to lead this critical discipleship ministry.  Karl was brought to the minds of key leaders independent of one another and then confirmed in what could only be described as a supernatural calling.  

Karl comes with over 13 years of leadership in the Indiana district office and has been involved in varying degrees of Royal Rangers for longer than that.  His district role had him involved in men’s ministry, discipleship, kids’ camp, and more.  He was very active in Royal Rangers, including attending LEAD and other national trainings for a number of years.

I would like to commend both Karl Fleig and Doug Marsh on their commitment to a strong transition and a healthy relationship of Royal Rangers USA and Royal Rangers International.  Both of these men have a passion for mentoring the next generation and will work well together to strengthen this ministry globally.

Please feel free to communicate with Karl through email at or by phone at 417-862-2781 x.4181 to share your congratulations and support.

The National Office has changed the requirements for FCF membership and advancement

Alright guys,  with the new handbook introduced at LEAD conference the National Staff has changed the requirements for both entering into FCF as well as advancing.  Below you will see our plan for this transition.

We will have ONE MORE FRONTIER ADVENTURE that will allow for the traditional Trail of the Grizzly Requirements.  This year only you will be able to enter FCF either on the old system OR the new system.  Once this Frontier Adventure passes it will be on the new system ONLY.

With these new requirements I am also putting the dates out for next year's District FCF events so that noon will be surprised.

 Frontier Adventure:  January 23rd – 24th   2015
Trace:  Feb 20th -22nd  2015
