Theory of Change workshop

November 8, 2021 @ 11:00 am November 21, 2021 @ 5:30 pm

A Theory of Change is your ministry’s story of how you believe change will unfold.

Are you planning to change, grow or add a ministry?

What impact are you having? How do you know? What difference is your ministry or program making? Learn what your mission is and understand the roles in achieving it.

The cornerstone of effective evaluation is a thorough understanding of the program you are trying to evaluate. This workshop will help you break your program or ministry down into its component parts, differentiating between things like “what you do” and “what you achieve.” Upon completion of the workshop you’ll have a completed Theory of Change and logic model.

  • A Theory of Change will provide a roadmap that outlines the steps by which you will achieve your mission. A Theory of Change can aid in aligning your stakeholders to your larger mission and help them understand their role in achieving it.
  • We’ll illustrate your Theory of Change with a logic model to show your stakeholders the intended relationship between investments and results.
