So. MO Royal Rangers Network hosted a 2023 Commanders Conference for Royal Ranger Leaders in the District. March 31st and April 1 held a special purpose in bringing our District Royal Rangers in So. Mo up to speed on updates and recognitions as well as fun fellowship. 

Friday was full of all kinds of learning.  District Staff RR Exec. Committee Meeting from 9 to 4:45 with a lunch break.  Training event was held.  Safety and Ranger Foundations.  Friday evening was full of Bunko game playing and Missions Auction. 

Saturday was general session.  Many speakers brought forth all kinds of great stuff to grow your local outpost as well as prosper your church and all the Christian Fellowship.  Greg Perkins or Men's Ministries Director always does a great job of bringing home the devotions and stirring our hearts and the Spirit that is in us to always strive towards the mark of Jesus Christ in our busy lives.  John Hicks our District Director was very busy as well as Richard Michael our District Training Coordinator in keeping things moving and growing.  Several updates from the National Office.  Karl Fleigh and JR Whinery talked about the Every Boy Initiative and how excited we are to see RR ministry open to every Evangelical Church that is excited to have Royal Ranger Ministry involved in their local church. 

Oak Grove AOG hosted this event with Gary and Sabrina Rowe facilitating and feeding the excited crowd.  Jerry Hanies brought out some always sought after FCF accrutements and Lindel Reece kept the Ranger Store open for purchases.  David Perkins has for 20 plus years kept our District Conference Records and Pow Wow Records and was once again busy tallying up and handing out notebooks.  So many names I am missing to mention as you all know you are so very valuable to RR ministry.
