    Free to ServeFree to ServeFree to ServeFree to ServeFree to Serve
    Growing up in the church, we learned about serving others. We were told that we are to be servants, and that the best way to show the love of God was to serve the people around us: our families, our friends, our communities.

    So the church at large schedules service events (also known as "service opportunities"). Things like a car care event where single moms and widows can get their car taken care of for free, or a dinner for the homeless of our county once a week. We set a date, gather volunteers and supplies, and a few people really work hard to make something beautiful happen in their community.

    And while these things are not bad (they are, in fact, quite amazing), there is a problem.

    But the problem isn't the event. The problem isn't your church. The problem is you. The problem is me. The problem is the idea that a once-a-month service event is what it takes to follow Jesus. We aren't called to check something off our to-do list once a month, or even once a week.

    We are called to serve. Everyone. Everyday. Serving others is a lifestyle. It isn't something we turn on and back off again. We are called to serve. It is the reason we've been given the freedom of Christ.

    Galatians 5:13-15 (MSG, emphasis added)
    It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Just make sure that you don't use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that's how freedom grows. For everything we know about God's Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That's an act of true freedom.

    God has made us free to serve. We have what we have (money, talent, time) to serve others. Serving was never about large events (not that large events are bad, just not the end-all). Serving is about doing what I can to help anyone and everyone around me.

    It can be as involved as an event that requires planning, or it can be reaching something on a high shelf in a grocery store for someone who can't.

    So rather than looking for the next great service opportunity, maybe you and I should start loving and serving the people we encounter everyday. Buy someone outside a cold drink, help an elderly person carry/load their groceries. Hold the door for someone. Smile.

    We have been made free. Not for our benefit, but for the benefit of others and the glory of God. It has to start somewhere. Why not with you?


About Us

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way,let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven. (Matthew 5:13-16 NIV)

Our Purpose

SaltTee gives 100% of all profits from each t-shirt directly to ministry. Too often ministries fail for lack of funding. In other instances precious time is taken away from the ministry to search for support. Our concept, was to use our knowledge of business to deliver a premium product to raise financial support for ministry in Hato del Yaque, Dominican Republic.

SaltTee was built and is run completely by volunteers. There are no salaries, rent or design costs. All marketing is via word of mouth, social media or is subsidized by business partners. The only cost in each SaltTee shirt is material, screen printing and shipping. This allows us to deliver a premium t-shirt at an affordable price and give the maximum amount of support to ministry.

Each t-shirt comes with a story and is designed to encourage the question "what does that shirt mean?" When your new SaltTee shirt arrives, it will include the story behind the shirt with your shipment. You are invited to share this story, or if you prefer, you can direct those who ask to SaltTee.com where they can read the story for themselves.
