Savion Lee was raised by his mother and mentored by his grandfather, but had no strong male Evangelical Christian figure in his life. Until his congregation, Faith Baptist Church in Wichita Falls, started Royal Ambassadors. Each week, men instilled Godly values in him and gave him the tools that would guide him the rest of his life.

“When I got involved in Royal Ambassadors, I found other men who were willing to be that Godly role model for me. They lead me to a path of righteousness,” Lee said.

“I found a group of guys who are unashamedly called to serve God and lead their other sons. They indirectly adopted me as one of their own.”

The results of the weekly discipleship and missions education efforts began to reveal themselves more the older Lee became. Decisions became tougher through high school and into college, but Lee relied on his strong faith foundation to navigate them. He matured into his faith and became a leader.

Then he first sensed God’s call during a RA camp. “At one of the campfire gatherings, I shared that I felt like God is calling me to full time ministry.”

The next step included serving as a RA summer camp state staffer for four years. Lee invested in the next generation of young men, helping them lay the spiritual groundwork that has been so crucial to him.

He recently graduated from Rice University and is serving as an intern at a campus ministry that shares the gospel and makes disciples. After that, he looks forward to following God wherever He leads, knowing he’ll take all he learned through RAs with him.

“Thank you for your commitment to serve,” he said. “I praise God that are men out there who recognize the importance of God in the lives of young men and boys.”
