The purpose of Royal Ambassadors is to involve boys in missions. Involvement in missions is living one's faith daily: personal experience in witness and ministry, and giving and praying to support persons involved in missions. Royal Ambassadors helps boys to become aware of the needs of people around the world and to respond to those needs. We seek to lead boys to a personal commitment to Christ and assist them in their Christian growth experience. Through RA's, boys are led to an awarenes of their responsibility to Christ and encouraged to become his ambassador.
This purpose is outlined in the Royal Ambassador Pledge:
"As a Royal Ambassador, I will do my best:
- To become a well-informed, responsible follower of Christ.
- To have a Christ-like concern for all people.
- To learn how to carry the message of Christ around the world.
- To work with others in sharing Christ.
- To keep myself clean and healthy in mind and body."
