KNIGHTS TEMPLAR HOLY LAND PILGRIMAGE for Christian Ministers. In this program, the various State Grand Commanderies of Knights Templar sponsor Christian Ministers on an paid study pilgrimage in Israel for 11 days. Local ministers are invited by individual Commanderies of Knights Templar to consider the possibility and a nomination form is submitted. Selection of sponsored ministers from each state must be registered by October 10. 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. In February 2019 the Knights Templar will sponsor the 42nd Pilgrimage of Christian Ministers begun in 1977 by our own Fred P. Lesley, Past Grand Commander. Since its inception Michigan has sent a total of 256 ministers while 2,208 have been sent from the Commanderies across the country. Returning ministers have a first-hand knowledge of the very places described in the Bible and are well equipped to transfer that knowledge and the excitement of having been there to their congregations for the remainder of their careers as messengers of God’s Word.
