Royal Ambassadors (RAs) is a Bible-centered, church-based, Southern Baptist mission education organization for boys in grades 1-6 and Challengers is the organization for youth in grades 7-12.
Why the Name Royal Ambassadors?
The RA Motto, “We are Ambassadors for Christ,” not only gives the organization its name, but also gives the boys and leaders a lifestyle goal. The Scripture passage 2 Corinthians 5:17-20 describes the purpose of Royal Ambassadors. While the RA motto is found in verse 20, the other verses sum up Paul’s declaration of why we need to be ambassadors for Christ.
What are Challengers?
Challengers is the youth mission education organization for young men in grades 7-12. Challengers provides mission training and mission accountability as young men support each other to fulfill their personal commitment to live out and share the gospel.
Challengers also gives young men a wide range of ministry, mission experiences and develops their leadership skills. Challengers are transformed from average guys into on-mission Christians.
