ROYAL RANGER SERMON COMPETITION
EXPLANATION AND PURPOSE
This competition is to encourage our young men to prepare a short sermon that will bless the people of God.
Sermons must include scripture quotations.
We encourage the boys to use the theme and scripture verse for this year Pow Wow in their sermon.
All presentations must be in harmony with the Statement of Fundamental Truths of the Assemblies of God.
It should be original material, not simply a memorization of someone else’s message. Participants are, however, permitted to use illustrations which may or may not be from their own personal experiences.
Each entry will be evaluated on the following criteria:
Introduction, theme interpretation, organization of material, language, transitions, illustrations
Body posture, eye contact, gestures, enthusiasm, confidence/self control, use of voice adaptation to audience.
Notes are permitted.
No props accept a pulpit, a folding chair and a Bible.
Participants must wear a Class “A” uniform. No costumes.
No audio tapes or audio visual devices are permitted.
All presentations must be reverent toward God and His people.
Time Limits: Discovery Rangers – 4 to 7 minutes.
Adventure Rangers – 5 to 8 minutes.
Expedition Rangers – 7 to 10 minutes
Sermons should reflect the Pow Wow theme.
Awards will be given in all three age categories.
Sermons will be graded by qualified speakers and pastors. Sermons are open to the Participants of the Pow Wow.
First place for each age group will receive a Bible.
