What others say about SALT

SALT’s Head Trainer

Brother J

“Throughout the twists and turns of the recently completed Three-Year Certificate Program, God opened my eyes and bolstered my confidence. Witnessing the first graduation ceremony at the WP training site, and seeing the joy of more than 20 graduates, brought such excitement and gratitude to my heart that words cannot express. Overcome by emotion, I could barely see through my tears. There is still a long way for us to go, so I keep urging myself: in the future, I must prepare each lesson even better, so that the students can get the best training possible. Glory to the Father! Amen!”
(Sharing after the first graduation of the first batch of the Three-Year Certificate Program in early 2021.)

Bless Vietnam Initiative

Quang Nguyen, President

“SALT has brought clarity of Truth and deep understanding to the simple believers in Northwest Vietnam where training is rare and seldom at an appropriate level for low education learners. It is not just SALT materials, but also the devout SALT trainers who have given Vietnamese pastors a model of Godly teaching that inspires them to do the same in their villages. I appreciate the way SALT trainers modified their teaching illustrations to adjust to their audience. SALT’s impact has been very profound!”

The Stewardship Foundation

 Dr. Cary Paine, Executive Director

“The need for pastoral training in Asia is well-documented, and many organizations are engaged in leadership development. We appreciate SALT’s practical and serious grassroots approach to curriculum development and training. Engaging national leaders, they focus upon this one thing and they do it very well. SALT doesn’t strive to be the biggest and best – but simply faithful and effective to their calling. The mustard seed principle is at work. They offer a high value investment. Their impact on the growth of the Church in Asia is impressive.”
