The Global Engagement Team of the Grand Canyon Synod exists to encourage and foster increased involvement by our congregations in ways that connect us globally. This team collects information about what congregations in this synod are doing in these areas; makes resources available to congregation seeking to engage globally in new ways; seeks to identify champions for these areas in each congregation; and strives to strengthen our companion synod relationship in Senegal.

in 2019 a group of young adults from the Grand canyon Synod traveled to Senegal to form relationships with our Senegalese brothers and sisters in Christ. The group included Geraldine (Faith), Julie (Esperanza/University), Stephanie (Our Saviour's-Phx), and Sam (Faith).
