Learn more about the RA/GA Programs

Girls in Action for girls, and Royal Ambassadors for boys, are ongoing missions discipleship organizations for elementary children (K–5th). As children are introduced to missional concepts, they learn they have an active part to play in God’s plan for their lives and for the world. They come to understand God can use them now—even in their youth—to share His love with others and make a difference. Experiences gained through childhood missions education lead to a lifelong commitment of service to God, His mission, and His church.

Through these organizations, children . . .
· Understand the Bible’s message of God’s love for all and His plan for saving them.
· Experience prayer as an active, vital part of supporting God’s mission.
· Discover the purpose(s) of giving learn the proper role of money in a Christian’s life.
· Learn to share their faith with others through missions projects and activities.

Through this year’s themeMission: Hit the Road, children will be challenged to “hit the road” for missions to share the good news of God’s love with everyone they meet on their paths—whether it’s down the street, around the community, or throughout the world! As children encounter friends and community members who do not have a personal relationship with Christ, they can share what God means in their own lives.

The RA Motto
We are Ambassadors for Christ, not only gives the organization its name, but also defines a lifestyle.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to Himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

The RA Emblem
The shield stands for the journey of and a commitment to faith in Christ (Ephesians 6:16). The crown stands for Christ the King and what He represents (James 1:12). The branch is for achievement and victory in the work, (Matthew 25:21) combining skills and actions help accomplish the goal of carrying the gospel to those needing to hear it. The color blue represents loyalty to Christ, His church, and each other. Gold represents the worth of the boy to God’s mission. White represents purity of living, which makes him an effective ambassador.
