Louisiana Grand Commandery Accepting Nominations
for Upcoming Minster Holy Land Pilgrimage Program

Do you know a Pastor who has never been to the Holy Land? Nominate them to be considered by the Louisiana Grand Commandery for a paid-for pilgrimage to deepen their knowledge of the Bible.

The Knights Templar Holy Land Pilgrimage is a program related to the Grand Encampment Knights Templar of the United States of America, with the mission to send credentialed Christian Ministers on a Biblical study and historical / cultural immersion experience who would not have the opportunity otherwise.

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.

To nominate someone, contact your local Knights Templar Commandery, or contact Committee Chairman Rev. Brother Dennis F. Snoddy at

Nomination deadline is September 1, 2021.
