The President's Message

On behalf of Southern Asia Leadership Institute, I am pleased to welcome you into the exciting educational journey that you have chosen to pursue. Our Lord has a wonderful plan for your life. The amazing thing about God’s plan is that He will put people and experiences in your pathway that will insure the fulfillment of your maximum life potential. 

The vision of Southern Asia Leadership Institute is to see a generation of leaders with character, integrity, and a heart for worship, serving Jesus Christ in their own communities throughout India. We endeavour to prepare leaders and equip them to serve diverse people groups in India by offering degrees and diplomas in theological and leadership studies. 

Our program is designed to train young men and to ground them in the Word of God to serve their fellow countrymen and demonstrate the love and compassion of our Lord Jesus to the world. You will interact with and learn from some of the very talented individuals. Most exciting of all, you will learn the concept of a Christian worldview so you may bring this knowledge with you as you further your educational goals.

Southern Asia Leadership Institute was born out of a missionary vision the Lord granted to us.  We believe worship is the key for mission. The Institute opened in June 2013 with sixteen students. We offer three-year B.Th. program in theological and leadership studies and a two-year diploma program in theology. 

It is our conviction that our graduates are world-changers precious to the Lord and we sincerely hope and pray that you will let SALI become your personal vehicle to academic growth and spiritual maturity.
