Associate missionaries have an affiliation with BICWM, but BICWM does not provide any administrative or financial support. BICWM acts as a link to the North American BIC constituency.
Assignment must be with a mission agency duly recognized by a body such as Missio-Nexus or with specific approval from the Board for World Missions.
All associate missionaries are self-supported. BICWM does not provide any financial support nor do they provide any benefits.
An associate missionary is:
- Not required to complete the MDP, but it or another organizationís equivalent is recommended
- Required to be a member in good standing of a BIC congregation before approval for service
