The logo is a weave, reflecting many aspects of Interserve’s identity and character. This logo is used across Interserve internationally.
Firstly, it represents our values including Wholistic mission, Partnership, Oneness in Christ and Community.
Secondly, it expresses a sense of integration at all levels of our work, including:
At a global level – We come from many nations and Christian denominations. We are united by a common commitment to God’s transformation in of all aspects of society.
At a local level – Each worker commits to becoming part of a local community – serving with the local church as it reaches out in its community. In the spirit of partnership, we invest and share the ministry risks and rewards together with others.
At a ministry level – We work towards transformation in all aspects of life: practical needs, emotional needs, spiritual needs. We integrate all aspects of ourselves – professional, personal, spiritual – in the way we serve. Women and men serve and lead together in all aspects of our work.
Thirdly, it is distinctive because:
The weave is never complete – always a work in progress. No person or team has reached perfection. We recognise the present beauty that God has already created in the awareness that He has much more in store. As an organisation we are constantly learning and seeking to grow.
We pay attention to the individual strand within the weave, recognising its importance in the whole. We attend to an individual Partner, confident in the part they play in a local community; equally, our Partners will attend to an individual, confident in the part she will play in transforming the life of her whole community.
The logo is accompanied by a system of creative expression using vibrant, diverse colour and pattern, representative of the cultures among whom we work.
Interserve is a community of ordinary Christians putting faith into action. We live and work among the most marginalised peoples of the Arab world, Asia and Australia.
Motivated by Christ’s heart of compassion, and in partnership with His church, we share our skills and experience to change tomorrow by what we do today.
