4 Introduction to SALT The Need for SALT A survey of training needs in AGI churches was conducted in This survey identified that training was needed in the churches, especially for those people most involved in ministry. The survey also revealed that many churches had training needs that could not be met within the local church. The idea of an AGI training school began to take shape. The Aims of SALT In 2012, the three pillars of AGI were identified, namely: (a) Raising up leaders, (b) Strengthening the local church, and (c) Planting churches. In that same year, SALT was established to train and equip leaders to pursue these three aims. The SALT Program SALT is a certificate level course and is made up of a number of modules. The individual SALT modules support the aims of SALT, as shown by the map of learning outcomes. Students are expected to demonstrate commitment to the program by attending no fewer than 90% of the classes. This is an additional program learning outcome in addition to the individual module learning outcomes. Recognition SALT is recognised by the AGI Credentialing Committee for the purpose of pursuing ordination with AGI. To benefit from this recognition, students must succeed at assessments in all the modules listed in this handbook, and the results must be verified at the SALT examination board by external examiners appointed by the AGI credentialing committee. Page 4 of 27

5 Modules The individual modules are described on the following pages. The Learning outcomes for each module indicate what the student will be able to DO after successfully completing the module. Learning outcomes indicate the minimum level of achievement required to pass the module.
