SALLTed is a single day event designed for Christian leaders from the public, private and social sectors to gather and discuss God’s vision for the well-being of cities and Metro-Oklahoma City in particular. The focus of the day is how Christian men and women of influence can work together to address and move towards resolving major social issues in a spirit of unity and love for the common good. SALLTed 2013 was the second such event and is available to watch here.
Each year a SALLT class goes through a 9 month training of SALLT curriculum to learn how to leverage their passions, skills, and influence for the common good.
At the conclusion of the SALLT “training year”, a graduation ceremony commissions each of the participants as well as celebrates the unfolding story of the transformation of our city.
The SALLT story began in Oklahoma City and continues to unfold not only locally but also globally.

We believe that the world is a better place when Biblical principles are embraced. In fact, we believe the love for others that comes from an understanding of God’s love, helps shape communities that are known for their service, generosity, work ethic and vision. When Christians understand the Word of God and are responsive to the Will of God in their lives, it improves the quality of life for all people, believers and unbelievers alike. The SALLT program is a Biblically based program that is open to all followers of Jesus Christ.
The SALLT program is comprised of key leaders from all walks of life interested in seeking collaborative ways to strengthen communities through the application of a Biblical worldview. Through this program participants are given an opportunity to build lasting relationships with other leaders who share in a desire to serve others in a substantive and lasting way. Imagine engaging the top leaders in education, government, business, the arts, media, religion and entertainment about the important issues of our time. If you are looking to find people who want to make a difference in the world, you will feel at home at the SALLT Academy.
The goal of this program is not to simply increase knowledge about important worldview matters; it is to engage culture with positive and meaningful solutions to systemic challenges. In particular, the SALLT program provides leaders with practical tools to address problems strategically and proactively. As a result, participants can expect an experience that is inspiring, educational and useful in determining how best to influence their communities for good.
