The iSalt Program
“You are the salt of the earth.”
Since 2008, through our iSalt.org ministry, we have trained nearly 100 students and adults to start seeing the world around them the way God sees it—as a mission field. After interviewing and being invited to join one of our teams, they go through four months of training, finally putting what they’ve learned into practice during a trip to serve with us in Bulgaria. Team members have gone on to serve all over the world in the mission fields God has called them to.
Over the years, God has taught us a lot about missions, and particularly about short-term mission teams and how they can be most effective. The iSalt program helps each team member to understand the big picture of God’s work, and how they can be a blessing rather than a hindrance to the spreading of the Gospel. It includes topics such as:
- The importance of working with the local church and/or missionaries
- Doing missions for the right reason
- Why understanding the local culture is important
- The importance of language
- Be flexible or be miserable
- Practical questions to ask as you prepare
- Much, much more!
We would love to have you bring or join an iSalt team to Bulgaria, or to help you train a team that is serving anywhere in the world (including your home town!). Contact us with questions, and for more about iSalt, visit www.iSalt.org.
