Pilgrimages for Christian Ministers

An Investment in Christian Ministry

The Knights Templar Holy Land Pilgrimage is a program related to the Grand Encampment Knights Templar of the United States of America.

Our Mission:  To send credentialed Christian Ministers on a Biblical study and historical / cultural immersion experience who would not have the opportunity otherwise.

PURPOSE: To strengthen Christian ministry by providing an intensive travel and study program for credentialed ministers in the form of a study pilgrimage to the Holy Land.  Our experience tells us how much the opportunity to ‘walk where Jesus walked’ can positively affect the preaching, teaching, and spirituality of Christian ministers.  It is our plan to immerse the Pilgrim ministers in the land, the sights, the sounds, the history, and the cultures of the Holy Land, past and present.

KNIGHTS TEMPLAR HOLY LAND PILGRIMAGE for Christian Ministers.  In this program, the various State Grand Commanderies of Knights Templar sponsor Christian Ministers on an expenses paid study pilgrimage in Israel for 11 days.  We do not solicit applications.  Local ministers are invited by individual Commanderies of Knights Templar to consider the possibility and a nomination form is submitted.  Each state has its own process for selection.  Selection of sponsored ministers from each state must be registered by September 30.  This is a fully packed itinerary and a physically aggressive program that involves 5 -7 miles of walking many days, often uphill or up steps and on uneven surfaces The KNIGHTS TEMPLAR HOLY LAND PILGRIMAGE for Christian Ministers takes place in February of each year.
