A large part of the Salt Network Global vision is doing university church planting in cities in Southeast Asia and East Asia. We are building & expanding university focused church planting teams in each of these cities that would include long-term church planting catalysts, non-staff elders, semester folks, and 2 year overseas residents.

The goals of this residency include: 1) learning language; 2) gaining valuable ministry skills while helping the team; 3) taking one CST class online each semester; and 4) evaluating whether long-term overseas work should be the trajectory of your life and if it is whether that is in a vocational ministry role, a job-taking or job-making role. We want each resident to have clear experiences that will train them for whatever direction God would lead their life

The cost for each resident per month is approximately $2,700. Residents will be expected to raise $2,200/month, as $500 will come from Salt Network churches. Residents will receive a regular salary with reimbursements for ministry expenses.

Requirements for this residency will include:

  • Vital involvement in Salt Company leadership at your sending church.

  • Going on a Salt Company summer trip.

  • A desire to consider long-term overseas work as your life’s trajectory.

  • Your Salt Network church committing to be your sending church.

  • Approval from the overseas and Cornerstone Global leadership team.

To begin the process of starting a Salt Network Global Overseas Residency in July 2020, let your Salt Company staff team know during your re-app interview and your church's missions leader. Fill out the Initial Overseas Interest Form below to let us know of your interest. The SNG staff team will get in touch with you about a video call or face to face meeting. Final decision will be made in early December 2019 by the Salt Network Global City Team Leader and your sending church.

If interested in 2020 or beyond, still contact us to begin the process.
