National Flame of Honor Recipients

In 1994, the National FCF Executive Committee facilitated the creation of a new award, the FCF Flame of Honor. This award was created to recognize those who had made outstanding contributions to advance the cause of the Royal Rangers and/or the FCF ministry. This award is authorized by the National FCF Executive Committee and is awarded only after the application has been thoroughly reviewed and deemed worthy of being awarded this level of honor.

In authorizing the Flame of Honor, it is the intention of the National FCF Committee, with approval from the National Royal Rangers Council that it shall be given as recognition, from the FCF, for:

Unselfish acts of heroism, for service dedication and devotion to the FCF purposes, or to the goals of Royal Rangers, or to the advancement of Christianity, or for the betterment of mankind.

These could be single acts, a series of deeds, or a lifetime given for service to others. Consequently there is no hard, fast criteria that a person must meet to qualify for the Flame of Honor. Indeed there is nothing that a person can do specifically to earn it. If, in the eyes of the person making the recommendation, the person being recommended had exhibited exemplary conduct that would serve as inspiration to others, then he may qualify should the committee concur. The acts may be unheralded or they may command headlines.
