This is the Senior Adult Ministry of the West Texas District Council of the Assemblies of God. We are here to encourage those from 50 and over to use their talents and skills to assist the local church in effective ministry for the Kingdom of God.
SALT stands for Senior Adults Living Triumphantly. This event is held each spring with an emphasis on discipleship training. There are services both in the morning and evening. Workshops are added to help equip individuals to serve God through the local church.
The retreat is designed to be uplifting and refreshing for our spiritual lives. During this time there are two services each day along with planned activities. One of the highlights is to gather around the piano and sing some of the hymns of the church.
