Ideas for Helping Royal Ambassadors Learn the RA Pledge
Included are suggestions for activities just for learning the RA Pledge.
Working with Boys
To work with boys, you need to understand them. A wise leader will seek to understand the strengths and weaknesses of boys and plan activities that will challenge them physically, mentally, and spiritually. No two boys are the same, but they share many of the same traits.
Positive Reinforcement with Boys
Boys who are obstinate, disruptive, and slow to finish may be brought into a spirit of cooperation with proper attention and positive expressions.
RA Bible Memory Verses
Looking for additional RA memory verses? Are your RAs working toward their Mission Bible Memory Medals? If so, these verses are a good starting place for their memorization work.
Risk Management Tips
These tips are meant to help in planning. They are in no way exhaustive. Please consult with your church leaders and proper authorities regarding specific issues in working with children.
Developing RA Leaders
You are an example, a living library of knowledge and skills that others seek to acquire. Do you currently have a “Timothy”-type person in your life? Will you prayerfully identify one or more persons to whom you can pass the torch of leadership? In doing so, you will leave a legacy of leadership that will affect subsequent generations.
Attention getters are used to draw everyone’s focus to the leader, allowing him to make announcements or give directions for the next activity.
Enlisting RA Leaders
Committed leadership is one of the most important parts of the Royal Ambassadors organization. Recruiting and cultivating leaders is crucial to establishing and maintaining a dynamic Royal Ambassadors ministry.
