Leader's Conference

Our district Leader's Conference is an annual event conducted in the spring of each year to provide program updates, leader training, and event information for the coming year.  This event provides outpost leaders with an opportunity to connect with other leaders from across the district, share ideas, find valuable resources, and be encouraged and strengthened in their role as a Royal Rangers leader.  Come join us for our next Leader's Conference!

April 5 & 6, 2024 - Oak Grove AG in Springfield

This year's Leader Conference will provide you with an experience that is fun, informative, and beneficial.  The following features will be included in hopes of making this event a valuable experience for you.

Friday, April 5th

Training Classes

Official Royal Rangers training modules will be provided.  Pre-registration is required.  Details will be provided soon.  Classes begin at 9AM and end by 5PM.

Friday Night Prayer & Praise

Beginning at 6:30 PM we will gather for a night of prayer and praise, thanking God for all He has done in our district in the past, and seeking His will for our future.  Following the service, ice cream and snacks will be provided.

Missions Auction

Immediately following our fellowship time (about 8PM) we'll be having our annual missions auction to raise funds for BGMC or other missions projects.  Bring your unneeded camping gear, books, patches, tools, craft items, or anything else you'd like to donate for the auction and watch someone go home blessed with your old stuff as a new treasure - and all for missions!
