Seminaries
Through the generosity of members of the Grand Canyon Synod, we are able to financially support Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary and we are able to support the seminary education of specific individuals at various seminaries.

We often receive thanks from the seminaries and their candidates for our financial support. Please know that we accept their gratitude on behalf of all members of this Synod. We encourage you to continue to support our seminaries through your own individual gifts or through the budget of your congregation.
