Royal Ambassadors (RAs) is a Southern Baptist missions education organization for boys in grades 1–5. RAs provides an opportunity for boys to develop Christian character through missions involvement and virtue commitments, in addition to growing spiritually, physically, mentally, and in relationships with others. Royal Ambassadors leaders utilize activities that are designed to help boys learn about God’s mission, participate in missions experiences, pray for and give to missions, develop and use mission skills, and learn about and support the missions work of their church and denomination.
The Bible speaks about the importance of educating boys about God’s Word and modeling how to serve. “Train a child in the way he should go. When he is old, he will not turn away from it” (Proverbs 22:6 NIV). Missions-minded Christian men serve as a living library of knowledge and as role models for boys to see what it means to grow in a relationship with Christ.
Committed leaders are at the heart of the Royal Ambassadors organization. Our leaders desire to help boys develop as ambassadors for Christ.
“Remember your leaders. They spoke God’s word to you. Think about the results of their way of life. Copy their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:7–8 NIV).
The Royal Ambassadors organization continues to provide an opportunity for leaders to help transform the lives of boys and help them become missionaries of their generation.
The purpose of Royal Ambassadors is found in the RA Pledge. Boys and their leaders are encouraged to make a commitment to live out these words. To build the Christian character needed to keep the promises of the RA Pledge, RAs learn biblical virtues.
