Royal Servants for Your Youth Group

5-7 week mission trips for students ages 13-19 and college-age.

As a youth worker do you desire to make disciples who make disciples? Our mission trips were created to serve you.

Our promise to youth workers and why Royal Servants for Your Youth Group

Our mission is to support and come alongside youth workers by helping to equip and expose your students to the reality of a world without Christ. We believe your students will return from a Royal Servants mission trip ready and eager to serve. As a youth worker, you can know with certainty our mission trips are:

We do mission trips because we love students, care about their growth, and serve them to become passionate disciples of Christ. We believe a complete disciple makes disciples, and that implies evangelism. The foreign mission field is not only a prime opportunity to teach evangelism and discipleship, it is also a fantastic environment for working in the student’s lives.

Students who are 13 to 18 are placed in discipleship groups (D-groups) with 2 to 3 peers which are led by adult staff disciplers. D-groups meet regularly, usually daily, to reflect upon and apply their training and experience.

Royal Servants mission trips are lead by Reign Ministries’ staff, not summer volunteers. Each staff member is intensively trained. Team leaders experience at least a full year of leadership training before taking a team of their own. Most our team leaders are former youth workers or missionaries. On average they have 11 years of mission experience and 15 years of youth ministry experience.

We have been doing these trips for over 30 years—since 1982. We have led more than 8,000 students on hundreds of trips to 60 nations.

There is no substitute for the local church in a believer’s life. We believe that. We live and conduct our ministry by it. We are tightly focused on serving local churches, not competing for their youth. This idea is not just rooted in theology; it is a part of our DNA. Most of our staff members have served as youth leaders and/or volunteer leaders in local churches for many years. Many are volunteers in their local church youth group while they serve on Reign Ministries’ staff. The moment your student arrives, our purpose is to train him or her to return to you and serve you.

Check out our statement of faith. It is our litmus test for what we teach and practice—focusing on the majors. On everything else, we exhort searching students to seek their answers in and from their local church community.

Take something as important as baptism for example. Each summer we have participants who have not had a relationship with Christ turn and come to Christ. We have students who have never been baptized. We have other students who did not take their first baptism personally. Often these students seek baptism during one of our trips. It is our policy to first encourage baptism in their community. If baptism during the trip seems appropriate, we always consult with the student’s pastor and parents and honor their desires first.

Royal Servants is a mission trip designed by youth workers to be a time of leadership preparation, mission exploration, and spiritual training. A Royal Servants mission trip isn’t a mission-vacation but an in-depth summer of receiving as they give. Many students later report back to us that their season with Royal Servants was a defining moment in their lives and walks with Christ.

And each student receives because we have intentionally designed our trips to be a summer spent in God’s Word, in scripture memory, sound teaching, and discipleship. We want to make sure what they do for Christ is an outflow of who they are in Christ.

Each summer we are entrusted with a parent’s most valuable treasure, their children. Reign Ministries has been taking students overseas since 1982. We have the policies in place and leaders with the experience to make the right choices. The emergency plans are ready to go, and we will never compromise the safety of the team.

We care for more than just each student’s physical safety but also their emotional and spiritual safety as well. Our team leaders are experienced youth and mission professionals. They love students and are competent to counsel correct encourage and exhort as well as lead teach and train with wisdom.

Everything we do has a reason—intensive discipleship, quiet time, worship, teaching, memorization, and prayer. All we do has one purpose, to equip and prepare you to maximize your impact and usher our mission participants into a deeper walk with God.

Our mission trips are a time to readjust priorities—a place for intentional discipleship, focused quiet times, twice-daily worship, and team building.

Close
Each student gives while working alongside indigenous believers in each country. They do all sorts of activities geared toward building the church and meeting physical and spiritual needs of the area. We engage in activities that local believers know is right for their culture, not what we think they need. Close
