You can apply at any time. The application process is different for Partners (long term) and On Trackers (short term), but generally applications involve the filling of some forms, compiling your CV, arranging references, completing medical and psychological tests (long term) and attending interviews.
As a Long Term Partner, you will need to be qualified and experienced in your chosen profession or trade and be active in your home church. It’s important that you know who you are as a follower of Christ and have a strong relationship with God that is well integrated with your life.
For On Trackers, your cross-cultural service is packed within a four weeks to year long experience. We’re looking for passionate followers of Christ who are active in their faith and engaged with their home church.
Interserve will work with you to build a healthy support base of financial contributors, prayer partners and personal support team – the people who have your back. You will never be alone. We will help you build a strong network of fellowship, prayer and care through our office staff, our seconded agencies in host countries and your sending church.
We work with you from the beginning to place you where your expertise is in demand and your personal abilities and Christian gifts can be used to their best advantage.
Once overseas you’ll be able to stay in touch with your supporters and Interserve through regular newsletters. The relationships between Partners, supporters and Interserve create a great team approach and great support for your ministry.
