Salt Ventures is committed to raising up the next generation of leaders for Balkan churches and society. Developing leaders is a particular challenge in this part of Europe, where years of oppression and social disruption have weakened public institutions throughout society and driven many talented individuals to seek a prosperous future somewhere else in the world.
Leadership development requires a large investment of time and resources, by qualified professionals, in order to achieve success. Salt Ventures has committed a significant portion of our attention and resources to this vital task.
Developing Leaders Through the St. Trivelius Institute
St. Trivelius Institute is the primary institution through which Salt Ventures works to provide training for pastors, lay leaders, and others interested in education from a Christian perspective. Salt Ventures provides direction, regular faculty, guest instructors, fundraising, and administrative support to the school.
