Sagebrush Academy of Leader Training (SALT) is an intensive development program to prepare participants for vocational and nonvocational ministry. SALT focuses on key components that are designed to help every participant develop as an individual, a minister and a leader. By investing in your leadership through SALT, your love and knowledge of Jesus Christ will grow in amazing ways.

Why Register for SALT?

Biblical Training

Pastors and ministry veterans will teach sound doctrine and practical ministry providing students with a greater Christian biblical worldview and understanding of the Bible.

Personal Study

There is a significant amount of reading, research, and personal study time required to successfully complete SALT. We encourage students to take one class and focus on what God is teaching them through that study.

Servant Leadership

Overview: There has always been a leadership crisis in the world! In the 70s, a new concept emerged: the idea that one can be both a servant and a leader simultaneously.
