Interserve International Structure
Interserve has 14 National Offices, 6 formal Partnering Agencies, and 23 Country Teams. While our operations hub is in Southeast Asia, we have a wider team located around the globe which include members of the International Leadership Team. Each National Office is registered in their respective country. Each Country Team is responsible to the International Leadership Team.
We refer to our missionaries as “Partners”. Partners join Interserve through the National Office in their home (passport) country, and then serve with us wherever they are needed. They are accountable to the Team Leader in the country in which they serve.
Interserve International Governance
The International Director, and the International Leadership Team are accountable to an International Council comprising of 10 elected members. The 14 Interserve National Offices and representatives of each Country Team all participate in the election of the International Council.
