National Commander - Rich Mariott

National Royal Rangers Commander from 1999 thru 2007



New National RR Commander Announced
Wednesday, April 7, 1999

This was an email that was sent to Royal Ranger leaders around the US.

Richard Mariott, Royal Rangers commander for the Northern California-Nevada District, has been appointed the new national commander of the Assemblies of God ministry to boys. Mariott has served as district commander since 1989 and was also appointed as district men's director in 1992.

Mariott comes to the position of national commander with a wealth of experience in Royal Rangers. He served in his local assembly's Rangers program before becoming district commander. With a love for the outdoors and a burden to reach boys for Christ, Mariott believes in the effectiveness of the Royal Rangers outreach.

A Vietnam veteran, Mariott has received one of the highest awards presented by the Air Force, the Air Force Accommodation Medal. He will assume leadership of the national Royal Rangers office at the General Council of the Assemblies of God in Springfield, Mo., in June.

The Rev. Ken Hunt has resigned his position as national commander. He leaves his office to pursue a new ministry direction after having serviced from September 1989 to the present.

"After seeking the Lord now for many months," Hunt says, "both my wife, Sharon, and I have come to know that God is leading us into yet another phase of ministry. Sadly enough, this means leaving the national Royal Rangers ministry. I give thanks for 10 wonderful years. Having fallen in love with Royal Rangers, I have enough memories to last a lifetime."
