We all know the prevalent saying "there's a stairway to heaven and a highway to hell," which is indicative of the number of people who will likely go to each place. What if we could change that? What if we could turn the stairway into a highway? What if all it took was influencing one boy; helping them make a conscious decision to serve the Lord and minister to his friends and fellow classmates?
April 27-29, 2018, boys of all ages are invited to attend the largest event hosted by the North Texas Royal Rangers. There they will interact with other believers, experiencing an event to fire them up more for the Lord. There will be fun activities from field games to shooting events, a show of classic vehicles, as well as fellowship at meal times.
A couple of special events are also taking place at this year's Pow Wow. First, we will be doing a Ranger Derby, so bring your Ranger Derby cars to race against boys and men from all across the district. Second, we are also running a Lego® Derby. This is where you build a derby car out of Legos® and we'll race them against other Lego® derby cars.
Most importantly there will be a special speaker bringing the Word each day, fanning a fire in each and every person who attends. This is an event you and your boys do not want to miss!
The registration fee is $83 per person. If you are chartered, you receive a 15% discount, resulting in a registration fee of $70 per person for chartered churches. This includes a challenge coin that is earned by the boys through participation in the activities, the patch, a t-shirts, and five meals. Registration is due by April 9. Any registrations received after that date will need an additional $15 per person.
