Urban Vision has a second category called an ‘Associate’. This is a unique arrangement within Interserve England & Wales and so it does not link the individual in any way to Interserve Fellowship worldwide.
Associate status allows flexibility for individuals for whom a more formal link is not practicable or advisable due to professional restrictions. In turn, Urban Vision is enriched by its Associates due to the contribution of their invaluable insight and experience to the Urban Vision network.
Urban Vision Associates are people who have a sense of calling to the task of cross-cultural ministry but with varying degrees of commitment to the Interserve family. Associates are looking for the benefit of interaction with people who understand the issues and are able to be supportive in ways that the average local church may not.
