SALT19 Pre-Conference Labs

At SALT Conference, we work hard to create an environment where you can increase your skillset at a fraction of the cost that it would take to bring in an outside teacher. But some topics take more than a 1-hour workshop. This is why we created the SALT PRe-Conference Lab.

The day SALT19 Conference begins, we’ll offer four distinct, and in-depth learning opportunities, for those who want to go deeper in the best learning environment of the conference: 

Tickets are $99/person.
Space is limited.

Option 2: Creating an Online Church Community

Darrel Girardier & The Brentwood Baptist Communications Team

The internet has changed the way the church serves its congregation. More than likely the visitors at your church found you online….first!  This class was designed to help your church build a communications strategy that will serve your community and allow for an immersive internet experience.  Join Darrel Girardier as he leads this class and helps you develop strategies and processes for your churches social media, advertising, website and email platforms.

Tickets for this class will be limited to 80 spots.


Option 3: Worship Leader Bootcamp

Worship Leaders, Musicians
Michael Farren (Grammy Nonimated, Worship Leader)

The ultimate goal of a worship leader is to draw the congregation into an attitude of worship, but that is the end result.  There are so many things that have to happen to create the environment and that is why this class was created.  From recruiting and growing your worship team to implementing new songs, this class will cover all areas the worship leader deals with in a week.

Tickets for this class will be limited to 80 spots.

PRe-Conference Lab - Audio

Option 4: I Like The Sound Of That

Audio/Sound, Worship, Tech Teams
Doug Gould (Pro-Audio Instructor)

This intensive will give you hands on experience in setting up a great sound system. Through this three-hour lab we’ll cover a myriad of topics including the foundation of a great sound technician: the heart, Getting inputs right, Cables, DI Boxes, Adapters, Microphones, The bus, EQ, Processors and more! This will be a great class for those who know audio, and anyone who is new as well. Doug has a gift for teaching in a very “non-techie” manner.
