Our work Supporting mission Recruitment Recruitment ICS operates as a patronage society for twenty-three of the churches to which we are connected to. This means that we support the church in its recruitment from the moment they start drawing up the church profile, through the advertising, shortlisting and then the interview process carrying on to the post appointment support. ICS is there, seeking to serve the church and support the church representatives, as together we make wise choices about the future leaders. This is done in co-operation with the Diocese involved. ICS also takes the lead on recruitment in a number of other locations where we are pleased to be able to share our expertise in this area and to draw on the network of people we are in touch with who are considering a role in cross-cultural mission.
