What is iSalt?
The iSalt program is a leadership development and discipleship program that aims to teach students and adults to view the world around them as a mission field. The program includes sixteen weeks of training and preparation, and ends with an international mission trip (currently we are heading to Bulgaria in Eastern Europe), where the teams put what they've learned into practice.
To even be accepted to this team, students and adults have to show that they are already actively living like missionaries at home and in their communities, and demonstrate that they are leaders who are ready to face challenges and do hard things. They have to commit to a lengthy preparation process which begins in March and includes completing weekly assignments-learning, growing and stretching themselves beyond their normal commitments to school, jobs, church and whatever else they do. They also have to be committed to serving as leaders both at home and on future mission trips, whether through iSalt, their own churches or other organizations. As you can see, the iSalt program is much more than just a trip - it's a leadership development program that includes a trip. Graduates of the iSalt program will not only see the world differently, they will have the practical skills necessary to lead teams in serving others, wherever God takes them!
The committment to this team requires a great deal from each person, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and financially - but we believe that the results will far outweigh the investment. We look forward to seeing leaders who will not just go to church, but who will BE the church - in everything they do.
