Authenticity + Mission

Life is about more than just financial success or professional esteem

You’ve found your identity in Jesus Christ and want to live a life rooted in his story. You want to live a life that makes plain his heart for the wounded, the poor, the marginalized, because his love brings transformation. Knowing him changes everything.

The problem is you don’t see yourself as a typical overseas Christian worker.

You are a regular person with real-world professional skills who wants your faith to be integrated into your life, your work and everything you do.

You don’t want to put your training on the shelf. You yearn to find like-minded professionals who value excellence and are committed to creatively using their skills and expertise for the good of local people.

We think you belong with Interserve.

The Interserve team experience was one of the highlights of my year as an OnTracker.  The team welcomed me to the country and supported me. Our team members were from all over the world, with a shared desire to work in this country--and I loved learning about a new culture through such a variety of cultural perspectives. 

-Short-term partner in Southeast Asia

When we were in the hard places we knew that Interserve was behind us, taking care of us and all the details, so that we could focus on the work God had for us.

Interserve's commitment to unity in diversity is a witness to who God is and an important reminder that we should be peacemakers and bringers of reconciliation as his servants.
