March 9, 2020

This project is now a few years old.  However we still need your help to keep it up to date. Do you have any history for your activities at outpost, sectional, district, regional, or national events for 2020 or before? We would love to get a copy and get it posted on the history site. Whether is it Pow Wow packets, FCF packets, posters, documents, patch scans, staff listings, etc.  All history for your district and section can be posted. Please contact Mark Oliver and it will get updated quickly. We ask that patch scans/photos be a minimum resolution of 300x300. If you take a photo, please put one patch per picture and take the photo close to the patch so we get it up close.

Historical Stories

Chi Omega Rho

Sent from Anthony Hubbard - historical article

Chi Omega Rho (the Collegiate Order of Royal Rangers) was started in the Fall of 1972.

Prior to this time Nationsl Commander Johnnie Barnes had felt the need for a program designed for college students who were interested in the Royal Rangers Ministry.

The first two chapters were started simultaneously at Central Bible College (CBC, now part of Evangel University) and Evangel College (now Evangel University)

The National Office made the decision that Chi Omega Rho would be designed around knighthood and the religious customs and manners of medieval knights.

This was designed to provide fellowship to former Royal Rangers on the campus, to promote Royal Rangers to interested students, provide education and service to the local outposts, and districts, and to build comradery among the members through activities.

The Chi Omega Rho patch was designed by Johnnie Barnes. The first design was oval in shape and was later replaced by a round design.

The Advancrment patches were designed by Michael Harris "Sir Stalwart the Oakhearted knight"

These three levels of advancement were the knight Esquire, knight bachelor and the knight baronet.

Entrance into Chi Omega Rho was by participating in a Quest.

A revised version of Chi Omega Rho was piloted by Rev. Rob Hawks " Sir William the Wise" of the Pen Florida district in 1991. This pilot was cancelled in the spring of 1994.

Chi Omega Rho was officially halted in 1999 and ceased to exist as an organization.
