In August 2014, the S.A.L.T. Connection was founded by Charita Howard. The non-profit’s mission is to help Christian women learn how to develop an intimate relationship with God so they can then use their biblical knowledge and life experiences to become a spiritual mentor to other women.
In June 2015, the first S.A.L.T. Connection class began. In September 2015, a board of directors was established which includes the following persons: Charita Howard (Founder), Marsha Loggins (President), Danica Harris (Secretary/Treasurer), Danielle Scruggs (Board Member), Audra Howard (Board Member), and Sheila Spikes (Board Member). On June 15, 2016, the S.A.L.T. Connection was approved to be a non-profit organization.
In June 2016, the first S.A.L.T. Connection class graduated with six women successfully completing the program and receiving a spiritual mentor certificate of completion.
Today, the S.A.L.T. Connection continues to hold classes which provide education and training for women that will enable them to become spiritual mentors for other women. The classes consist of 12 women of diverse backgrounds.
The S.A.L.T. Connection is a faith-based nonprofit organization that provides education to help Christian women learn how to study God’s Word for a victorious life, live a lifestyle of worship through obeying God’s Word and use their biblical knowledge and life experiences to become a spiritual mentor to other women.
Pouring God’s Word into women so that they can pour into other women.
S. – STUDYING FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH – 1ST PETER 2:2
A. – APPLICATION FOR A VICTORIOUS LIFE – COLOSSIANS 1:10
L. – LIVING TO WORSHIP GOD – ROMANS 12:1-2
T. – TEACHING OTHER DISCIPLES – MATTHEW 28:19-20
The primary goal of the Spiritual Mentor is to make disciples. Jesus commissioned all disciples to go into the nations and make other disciples; teaching them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matt 28:19). Then He also tells us that we are the SALT of the earth; we add flavor and enhancement to this dark world. It is our duty to pour into others so that the flavor will continue to flow. However, we cannot teach or pour into others unless we are properly trained and equipped. This training begins with the Word of God. It is also through God’s word that Christians will develop a more intimate relationship with God.
One who is authentic in Christ, willing to learn and grow as one of His disciples, and reproduce their knowledge and experience to others.
You must have a desire to spend time loving people.
One who has a desire to know Christ, be willing to grow in Christ, or be willing to have someone in their lives as a friend and guide.
