Royal Ambassador Point System (Revised 12/3/12)
In order to accumulate points, each member must have demonstrated the basic Royal Ambassador skills, during the calendar year. These basic skills are: 1) Royal Ambassado Pledge 2) Royal Ambassador Motto 3) Read scripture 4) Raise a hymn 5) Offer prayer Points shall be earned for participation in each of the following activities. Members will be ranked in ascending order by the highest number of accumulated points. This simplifies the system and reduces much of the work to simply keeping roll for key events and activities. In order to keep the interest high as the year progresses, we have a Royal Ambassador of the Month Program, where a member is recognized for his achievement on a monthly basis (member accumulating highest points during the calendar month). 1) Meeting attendance - Royal Ambassador Meetings (2 Points) - Youth Church meetings, including Bible Class (1 Point); 2) Royal Ambassador Group mission activities (3 Points); 3) Royal Ambassador Interest activities (1 Point); 4) Youth Church Sunday participation a) Church School teachers, program participants, etc.) (1 Point); b) High Points participant (3 Points); c) Devotions (typically on 4th Sundays) (2 Points); 5) Bonus points or special activities (2 Points ea. to be communicated ahead of time); 6) Couselor input on final selections and determinations; a) Demerits for poor conduct reported by counselors (1 Point ea. occurrence).
