Re-Visit Your Calling


(Find A Cave, If Necessary) By Rev. Bobby Basham District Commander


s we enter a new year, my prayer is for the Lord to reinvigorate our hearts and give all of us a fresh anointing to serve Him and the boys He has placed in our care. Royal Rangers is a tremendous tool to reach into a young man’s life and see Jesus change him into a man of God that serves his church, his community and his family. This is our goal and reason for being. The entire Potomac District Royal Rangers staff exists to serve our commanders and boys, to enable all of us to reach more boys, to see boys grow in God, and to ignite a fire in lives of boys that will spread to other young men. Guys, it can happen and it needs to happen. As we begin to gear up for the next year, don’t be afraid to re-visit your calling and purpose in this ministry. There are times in my life, that like of Elijah, when I need to go back to a cave and figure out my calling and my direction. It is from there that the Lord hears our prayers and speaks to us once again in that small, still voice, recharging our hearts and our mission. With that said, may I encourage each Ranger leader, especially those of you who serve on a sectional staff, please make our Potomac District Commanders’ Conference on March 25-26 a priority event in your calendar this year. At last year’s conference, we began our journey of encouraging leaders, and this year we want to keep walking down that path. Our keynote speaker for Friday night will be our past District Superintendent and current Regional Executive Presbyter, Dr. H. Robert Rhoden. We are changing up our conference in response to the feedback from last year’s event, and I believe you will like the changes. We will be meeting at West End Assembly of God in Richmond this year, and I encourage you to bring your spouse and have a fun and relaxing weekend. More details about our conference will be forthcoming in the days ahead. Leaders, and boys, if you have to, go to a cave, get alone with God and let Him once again speak into your life, and you can then leave that place of sometimes despair with renewed anointing and passion. It is an honor to serve this great ministry.

CLARIFICATIONONFCFMEMBERSHIPDUES By Rev. Bobby Basham, FCF Chairman and Bill “Red Paddle” Chestnut, FCF President


e have discovered some confusion over our FCF charters in terms of Royal Ranger charters, time of charter and participation in FCF events and RRA members’ financial responsibilities in reference to FCF. We hope to alleviate confusion and misunderstanding among our members and Royal Rangers. Royal Ranger Charters and FCF Charters Royal Ranger charters that are now done online with National Royal Rangers are only for Royal Rangers and do not include FCF. To avoid further confusion, we will now refer to FCF charter as FCF membership dues to maintain the distinction. FCF membership dues are to be mailed to our district FCF and not National Royal Rangers.

FCF membership dues year will run from October to October just like the Royal Ranger Charter but can be paid at Pow Wow in August or at district FCF events such as the Spring Trace or Fall Trace to our FCF Scribe. If dues are mailed to our chapter, please mail them directly to our Blue Ridge Chapter Scribe, payable to Potomac District Royal Rangers. But please understand, FCF dues are not part of the event registration, but in addition to. Anyone who is unable to cover his dues or event registration will need to discuss his situation with the FCF President before attending an event. We want everyone to be active and to participate, not to exclude anyone.

day, are required to have up-todate dues and to pay event registration. The Scribe will be able to assist any who are unsure of the status of their dues in order to facilitate good communication. Royal Rangers Alumni are a valuable part of Royal Rangers, and we appreciate their service to this ministry. It is expected that if they are part of a church with a chartered Royal Ranger outpost, they would charter with their outpost. However, if they are part of a church without an active Royal Ranger ministry, their RRA membership allows them the privilege of participation in District Ranger events that are available to chartered outposts. Membership in FCF and FCF dues are in addition to chartering and/or membership in RRA and are expected to be current for one

See FCF DUES, page 8

ToOurChurchLeaders,aLittleBitAboutFCF Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship (FCF) is a critical extension of Royal Rangers. While we may dress up in time era clothing and camp in primitive shelters, the heart of FCF is service to Rangers, to the church and the world at large. Our members invest literally thousands of man hours in ministry and thousands of dollars in missions each year, each of which can be documented. FCF members are the elite of Rangers whose passion is to serve Christ and the local church. It is the service arm of Royal Rangers, and the motto is “To Give and to Serve.” This Ministry is growing, and we pray that it helps us to retain men and boys who have a heart to serve God and to honor a time era, where a man’s word was his bond and a hand shake stood the test of time. It is an atmosphere where young men can become men of God.

Ranger Alumni News Congratulations and welcome to William Terry Butts of the Northeast Section as the newest member of Royal Rangers Alumni in the Potomac District. The Royal Ranger Alumni (RRA) program was recently inaugurated to provide a method by which Ranger leaders (age 55 plus) may continue to serve as a vital part of the Royal Rangers Ministry. RRA provides an opportunity for leaders to share their knowledge, expertise and experiences with boys and local commanders. The RRA provides the opportunity for you to continue to be involved in Rangers as your time permits. Royal Rangers leaders upon reaching retirement age or when medical problems or other reasons prohibit them from serving as a commander, may feel they no longer have a part in Royal Rangers ministry. This is certainly not the case, as many of these leaders have a wealth of knowledge and experiences and are willing and able to serve on a limited basis. RRA will provide the structure by which these Royal Rangers leaders may continue to be a vital part of Royal Rangers and assist their districts on their time schedule. The objective of the RRA is to provide opportunities for service and ministry for former/retired Royal Rangers leaders. Those interested in joining the ranks of the Royal Ranger Alumni can contact their sectional commander or sectional RRA coordinator for an application.

GOLD MEDAL SPOTLIGHT Isaac Brannon recently became the first Royal Ranger from Outpost 74 at Full Gospel Assembly of God in the 34-year history of that ministry to earn the Gold Medal of Achievement. At his Court of Honor on Nov. 7, he became GMA #403 for Potomac District.

The Value of Royal Rangers to Me By Isaac Brannon


started Royal Rangers as a Straight Arrow, under the old curriculum. I made friends, learned a lot about God and had a lot of fun every Wednesday night. I remember learning memory verses like Matthew 7:12, John 3:16, and the most challenging for me, Psalm 23. These verses, among others, revealed to me just how much God loves everyone, and how He expects us to act. By the time I was in Discovery Rangers, I could better understand the different things we would go over each week. I liked completing the various Bible and skill merits. I enjoyed completing the merits because they were a lot of fun, and because they involved practical application after we’d mastered the skills. Through Discovery Rangers, I have learned how to do things like fire BB guns, build fires, sharpen, use and store tools, and cook on campfires. In Adventure Rangers, I was taught things like how to survive in the wilderness by building primitive shelters, how to clean dishes on campouts to prevent the spread of food-borne illnesses, and how to pack a backpack for backpacking trips. Through Royal Rangers, I’ve also learned more important things, like how to be a leader, and the importance of responsibility. I’ve learned to do what I know is right, even if it’s not the most popular thing to do. I’ve also learned the importance of reading my Bible, and talking to God every

day in order to develop a personal relationship with Him. I realized that I will never get as close to God as possible if I don’t talk to him frequently and carry His word in my heart. My Expedition Ranger commander, who also happens to be my dad, has really challenged me lately to seek after God and let His light shine through me at school every day. He often reminds me that there’s always someone watching me, no matter where I go, who is paying attention to how I talk and how I act. I have found the Spirit Challenges to be very meaningful as well. They have taught me how to carry myself through high school without being swayed by the modern day pressures placed on teenagers like me. I’ve also taken on various lead-


ership positions in my outpost. I was Senior Patrol Guide in Discovery, Adventure, and Expedition Rangers. I was also Patrol Guide and Assistant Patrol Guide several times. Through these positions, I’ve learned the importance of integrity and responsibility. I now know that as a leader, you need to do the right thing, even when no one is around. I’ve also learned that in order to be a leader, I need to respect those in authority while setting a good example for others to follow. I think some of the most valuable Royal Ranger experiences for me were at the Junior Leadership Training Camps. At JTC, I learned things like how to lead a boy to Christ and how to conduct a council fire service. At JSC, I learned how to build a shelter in the woods and how to collect safe drinking water. And at JTT, I learned how to dress when hiking or backpacking and the advantages and disadvantages of different types of backpacks. I always left these camps proud of what I’d accomplished and eager to share what I learned with my fellow Rangers. The camps were fun, but challenging. A lot was expected of me and the rest of each patrol I was part of. Everyone had to be responsible and cooperative, because there was no adult standing right over you tell-

Sectional News Roundup


Larry Seeds Recognized for Outstanding Service By Roger Riendeau Sectional Commander Congratulations to Royal Ranger Cmdr. Larry Seeds who received the Potomac District’s Outstanding Service Medal on Nov. 14. Cmdr. Seeds was recognized and presented at Churchland Assembly of God in Portsmouth, Va. by Rev. Bobby Basham for serving as the Tidewater South Sectional Commander for 13 years. In 1996, when the Tidewater Section became too large, the District split the section into the northside and southside sections. When asked, Cmdr. Seeds eagerly took on the task and the rest, as they say, is history.


VETERAN LEADERSHIP CELEBRATED Larry Seeds (center stage) acknowledges his award of the Outstanding Service Medal for 13 years of service as former Tidewater South Sectional Commander during a presentation in November. During its infancy the Tidewater South Section had six outposts; now it has grown to include 13 active outposts.

What Royal Rangers Means to Me

Congratulations Commander Larry. We will be forever grateful for your guidance and direction.

Potomac District Light for the Lost Tour 2011


ing you what to do all the time. Through these camps, I was able to become a better leader and example for the younger Rangers in my outpost. I was taught how to be mature, and how to have fun at the same time. One of the main reasons I enjoy Royal Rangers so much is because of the fellowship it offers. I love going to these events to fellowship with people who share my faith. I have several friends that I see several times a year thanks to Royal Rangers. Royal Rangers has provided me with so many awesome outdoor experiences, all of them Christ-centered. That is why Royal Rangers is so valuable to me.
