We are the Modern Knights Templar, an Ecumenical Christian and Chivalric charitable Order. We do not claim a direct lineage to the original Knights of the Temple, but we do seek to emulate their positive attributes in our daily lives today. We have adopted two of the original Templar missions of Protecting Christians at Risk particularly in the Holy Land and the Middle East and in Keeping the Road to Jerusalem open to all people as our own.

Affiliated with the International Order (OSMTH)





In Memoriam

We here honor those fallen Knights and Dames who have humbly passed into the hands of our Savior. They are always remembered, for in remembering them they are always with us in Spirit, and their ideals will be upheld by those of us who remain, until we each in His time are called to stand before Him, and together, we serve once again.

Please consider a one-time donation to the Jerusalem Mite to honor our most recent fallen Knight or Dame.
