Background Checks

To promote the safest and most secure environment possible, the ELCA and the Grand Canyon Synod strongly encourage our congregations to screen all employees and volunteers, both new and existing, especially those who interact with children.

For information about background checks for lay leaders and volunteers please contact the Synod office.
