Supporting you is a big priority
Living and working overseas is
a huge change to anyone’s life. New experiences from the move are part
of the adventure, but new stresses also arise. Supporting our Partners
is a big priority and we do all we can do be there with you all the way.
Interserve helps to network a strong structure
of fellowship, prayer and care in both home and host countries for our
Long Term Partners and Short Termers. With the help of our seconded
agencies and your sending churches, we ensure that your spiritual well
being is nurtured in your host country so that you can continue to be
salt and light in the communities you serve.
Placements are always
in regions where others with the same heart for the Kingdom are also
serving so that you will never be alone.

We want our Partners to have the best
fundraising assistance possible. Interserve provides financial
support based on Biblical principles and sound financial management.
are a member of ACFID (Australian Council for International
Development) and adhere to its Code of Conduct. We prepare annual
reports and our books are audited annually by a registered company
auditor. We also have a finance committee that meets monthly to closely
monitor our finances.
We make sure our Partners living overseas
are provided with sufficient and timely financing. We are familiar
with the necessary expenses that are involved with departing to the
field and the costs of upholding overseas ministries. We believe that
Partners should leave the field feeling good about the financial side
Team Support is the group of people committed to supporting Interserve Long Term and Short Term Partners through prayer, relationship and financial support. This commitment means that Partners, Supporters and Interserve are linked together — in faith and dependence on God’s provision.
One of our principles is that Team Support is fully pledged before an Interserve Partner is sent overseas. This means that each and every Partner has the financial support required for their first term overseas and they don't need to worry about raising more finances while they are away.
For our Partners who work primarily in community development, support is tax deductible for the Australian donor. Support for Partners who are primarily involved in church work is not tax deductible.
We want you to keep growing. That’s why
Interserve recognises the benefit of continuing professional
development for Partners. Professional refreshment can be gained at
home, before or after a service. It can also be obtained during periods
of service by attending structured courses or through visits to other
countries’ projects or institutions.
Emergency Medical, Compassionate Support
It’s important to us
that you are provided for in the case of medical emergency. Interserve
Australia provides Emergency Medical Evacuation Insurance for all
Partners in each of our regions. Emergency compassionate leave
insurance is also available to Partners at their own expense. While
serving overseas with Interserve, Partners and their children are
covered by Interserve’s International Medical Fund.
