Company Trapper

20 Points
 

Bourgeois

60 Points
 

Free Trapper

120 Points

 How points are earned:

Service points are accumulated when an FCF member volunteers his time (with no consideration for wages) in church, in community projects, in special needs organizations, or in humanitarian acts. He will receive one-half point per hour of service done within the community where he resides. For volunteer work done outside of his local setting, he will accumulate one point per hour of service, not counting travel time. He continues to add his total points together even after he has attained the next step. Projects are determined by the Chapter FCF Trappers Brigade Authorization Committee.

Service Projects:

Within the local church, service projects may include mowing the church lawn; visiting the sick; serving as an usher; teaching or helping in Sunday school; participating in youth, bus, or music ministry; doing office work or printing; and participating in missions emphasis, fund-raising, clothing, or food drives.

Within the local community, projects may include helping families who have lost their homes because of a disaster (e.g., fire, tornado, or flood); assisting needy people or children's groups; or working at a hospital, library, service center, voter registration drive, city recreational facility, juvenile detention center, the Big Brothers organization, or the Boys Club.

Outside the local setting, the member may accumulate points (not counting travel time) for missionary trips with MAPS (Missions Abroad Placement Service), FCF Pathfinder missions projects, missionary trips with AIM (Ambassadors in Missions), Convoy of Hope projects, AGHM (Assemblies of God Home Missions) projects, AGWM (Assemblies of God World Missions) projects, Care Corps projects, U.S.O. (United Service Organizations) projects, disaster assistance, search-and-rescue missions, etc. Check with your District Commander or Chapter President for other considerations.

Recognition:

For each additional thirty points earned, the Free Trapper will receive a numeral to be placed on his Free Trapper Medal.

A Chapter FCF Trappers Brigade Authorization Committee will review the points tabulated by the FCF members who qualify for recognition pins. Each FCF member needs to complete an application and be interviewed by the committee. During the interview the FCF member will share the details of his service project. Pictures, letters, artifacts, items of interest, and things learned, enjoyed, or experienced should all be shared when meeting with the committee. Young Bucks must complete the service under the supervision of an adult leader.

 


 Pathfinders

Founded in 1995, PathFinder Missions exists to construct churches, Ranger camps, Christian schools, clinics, orphanages, missionary dwellings, or anything a missionary needs to build God’s Kingdom at home in the USA, or in the most remote areas of the world.

Teams need a variety of construction talents, such as carpentry, masonry, framework, post and beam work, and native material construction. Accepting the challenge of a Royal Rangers PathFinder Missions trip may also require you to use your campcraft, woodsmanship, backpacking, and survival skills.

PathFinder Missions trips are classified by three levels of intensity, from entry level to advanced, and awarded accordingly:

The Bronze PathFinder Mission — U.S. Missions construction projects outside one’s home district. (Such as Indian reservations or in urban settings.)

The Silver PathFinder Mission — Overseas projects to moderately accessible construction sites with basic conveniences. (Such as churches, Rangers camps, or orphanages.)

The Gold PathFinder Mission — Overseas construction projects to harsh, remote areas of the world where other teams are unable to go due to the tough living conditions of these assignments. (Such as packing or boating equipment and building supplies to site.)
