The Salt Company is the college ministry of Veritas Church. It exists to passionately influence students in the Cedar Rapids area with the gospel, raising up leaders who are trained, equipped, and released for a lifetime of pursuing Jesus. The Salt Company gathers on Thursday nights during the school year and summer for worship and teaching, as well as throughout the week in student-led connection groups.


We gather weekly on Thursdays at 8pm at Veritas Church (509 3rd St. SE) during the school year to hear teaching from the Bible and worship through live music. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word for us today. Our usual pattern at Salt is to teach through books of the Bible. 


We desire to not only be a ministry that worships corporately, but one that also meets weekly with smaller groups to create authentic relationships. Student leaders lead Connection Groups every week. Connection Groups meet in many different locations, on and off campus.


We believe in students being raised up to reach our area campuses. Student leaders lead Salt Company connection groups. They set the pace for their peers by starting honest conversations about life, God, and what they're hearing at Salt.

Student leadership is our primary means of discipling students during their college years. We look to intentionally invest in student leaders who then get to invest in their friends, classmates, co-workers, and community.

Applications for the 2021-2022 school year open March 7th and close April 1, 2021.
