OVERVIEW

We can have a greater impact if we think strategically about our desired impact while planning, implementing and evaluating our programs.

By the end of this workshop, you will determine the precise link between your ministry's activities and outcomes for the purpose of planning, participation, and evaluation. 

 

This workshop is for recipients of an Embracing the Spirit grant – communities of faith developing new ministries and new forms of ministry (or ministries going through renewal) that show potential for positive spiritual, social, and ecological impacts and potential for financial sustainability.

The workshop is asynchronous, so you can do it at your own pace. You'll work at variable rates depending on your experience with planning and strategy. I suggest you schedule an hour to review the workshop material on Monday or Tuesday, two to three hours to complete the learning activities on Wednesday or Thursday, and an hour to comment on the posts made by your cohort members on Friday or Saturday. The timeframe below is only a recommendation.

MODULE 1 SCHEDULE

from approximately June 8th to June 17th

Module 1 of the workshop is designed to provide an overview of the Theory of Change and logic models. You will begin by learning about the Theory of Change as a product and process and how it differs from a logic model.  You will then use your own programs to investigate the workshop material, and immediately apply your learning. Once you've crafted your Theory of Change we'll have an individual coaching session to review it and prepare you for module 2.
