Thank you to everyone who came out Saturday for our Annual Banquet. We had a lot of fun, food, and memories. As you know, Michael Keese has stepped down as our District Director, but he can’t get away from us that easy. He has accepted the position as our new Regional Coordinator. God has timing for everything, and his hand is evident during this transition.
||As some of you now know, we have a new District Director. We have been looking and praying for God to help us find a new director, and he never fails. Randy Stewart has graciously accepted the appointment, and we are excited to serve under his leadership. This is a transition period for us, so please be patient. Michael and Randy are getting many things transferred, and it will be done in phases.
Here are a few things you need to note:
1. All Ranger Store orders will be handled by Michael Keese till the end of the year.Please send your orders to (firstname.lastname@example.org)
2. We will be transferring email addresses over to Randy, so there will be some delay or mixup. Please be patient.
3. Michael will keep (email@example.com), so feel free to send him an encouraging note.
We will let you know when the email transfer is complete in an upcoming E-Pathfinder.
My fellow commanders,
For those who were unable to attend the banquet last Saturday, I made the following announcement:
It is with mixed emotions that I have submitted my resignation as District Director of South Carolina Royal Rangers, effective June 30, 2015. I have served in this position for ten years, half of the 20 years I have been in Rangers. It is time for me to step aside and let someone new stand up and take charge of this ministry, someone who is better equipped to handle the changes that have occurred in technology and this ministry over these years.
It is my intention to stay involved in Rangers in my local outpost, and to continue as a certified instructor teaching new commanders/leaders how to use and work in the Ranger ministry.
I regret I have no recommendation for my replacement. This is one reason I am staying until June, to give the staff a chance to find that someone, for God to call that individual to stand up, and say I “heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me,” Isaiah 6:8. I also did not believe it would be right to step down with the busiest time of our calendar coming up.
To the best of my knowledge I am stepping down in good standing with the district, churches, and commanders that I have served during these ten years. It has been an honor and a blessing to serve in this position and I look forward to continue to serve in other capacities as the opportunities arise.
Thank you for supporting me during this time and thank you for your support of the Royal Ranger ministry. Be blessed!
Michael A Keese, District Director
New Girl’s Ministries Director Appointed.
The Assemblies of God National Leadership and Resource Center is excited to announce Mandy Groot as the AG National Girls Ministries Director.
Mandy currently serves as the Ohio AG District Girls Ministries Director, a position held since February 2009. During that time she has invested in creating a strong foundation for gender-specific ministry to girls through developing and empowering leaders throughout the Ohio Ministry Network. Her time in district leadership has given her a firsthand look at the needs of the local church for Pentecostal resources that are relevant to today’s girl.
Her influence reaches beyond her district as she has been a steady and upbeat voice within the community of District Girls Ministries Directors. Mandy was invited to serve on the NGM Task Force in 2012, a position that allowed her to provide ministry insights to both the former NGM Director and Senior Director of Children’s Ministries.
Tom and Mandy have been happily married for eighteen years and are blessed with three incredible boys: Micah, age eight; Levi, age seven; and Noah, age four. Mandy will begin filling the role of AG National Girls Ministries Director in January 2015 when she and the family relocate to Springfield, Missouri.
Mandy’s investment in leadership development, vision to church leaders, and ongoing training opportunities will play a key role in the outcomes-based, cradle-to-grave discipleship strategy of the Assemblies of God. Every young girl needs a role model who will journey with her through the ages and stages of life —someone who is a living example of God’s love and grace in their own life. This is accomplished as leaders continue to grow in their own relationship and allow His love to overflow into the lives of those they come in contact with.
The future of National Girls Ministries is bright as we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit to provide resources to help churches reach girls in their community.

We have a new National Director!
September 2, 2014
Karl Fleig, District Men’s Ministries and Christian Education Director for the Indiana district of the Assemblies of God, has been appointed as the new National Director of Royal Rangers. Karl replaces Doug Marsh who announced in April that he would be transitioning into full-time leadership of Royal Rangers International, the AGWM ministry Doug began in 2002 to expand the ministry of Royal Rangers around the world.
Karl comes into his new role with over 13 years of leadership expereince in the Indiana district office which included oversight of the Royal Rangers program there. His district responsibilites included men’s ministry, discipleship, kids’ camps, and more. He has been very active in Royal Rangers for many years, attending numerous national LEAD conferences and other national events.
This transition promises to continue the strong relatiionship between Royal Rangers USA and Royal Rangers International. Both Karl and Doug have a passion for mentoring the next generation and will work well together to strengthen this ministry globally.
Royal Rangers continues it ongoing purpose to mentor boys and young men, providing Christlike character formation and servant leadership development 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.
We have some news from Mark Entzminger, Senior Director of Children’s Ministries, about our National Director, Doug Marsh.
Doug will be stepping down as National Director and continue in full time missions as International Directors. Mark said, “…Doug will be making a gradual transition to this full-time missions status over the next three to six months. This will allow him to retain his role in leadership of Royal Rangers USA while we immediately begin a national search for a new director.”
You can read Mark’s full letter here: http://scdrr.org/forms/DougMarsh.pdf
Please pray that God will guide our National Committee and Leadership in their search for a new director.
