Number of Influenced Theological Training Org.
INDICATOR PHRASING: Number of theological training organisations Tearfund is influencing to promote a holistic understanding of mission and poverty
What is its purpose?
Demonstrating the scale and depth of CCT through measuring the number of different theological training organisations who are actively being engaged around integral mission or CCT as a result of Tearfund funding and/or as a result of catalytic influencing or facilitation from Tearfund.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Theological training organisation (TTO) refers to a Bible college, seminary, or theological institute which provides higher education specializing in one or more of preparing students for Christian ministry, biblical studies, doctrinal or eccliastical theology or practical ministry.
For a TTO to be ‘actively engaged’ on CCT, Tearfund, or our partners, should be intentionally building a strategic relationship with key actors at the leadership level to journey with them around IM/CCT with the intention of influencing TTO's curriculum or teaching.
This measures the national level. If TTOs are also engaged at the regional level this will be tracked separately by TNE.
Church networks can be engaged directly by Tearfund or indirectly through partners and allies.
Cluster and Country teams should monitor their engagement with Theological training organisations in the same “Stakeholders mapping” spreadsheet that is used to monitor church denominations and church networks‘ engagement. This mapping should be the result of a joint conversation between country teams, CCT and TNE cluster advisers, in order to facilitate alignment over country support and impact.
(Cluster and regional level relationships will be monitored separately, between the CCT and TNE cluster advisers)
For this indicator, there should be a simple survey to track how the theological training organisations are being engaged. The recommended spreadsheet classifies the relationship and also progress towards influencing the content of CCT in the curriculum.
This can be collected through asking the organisation’s leadership and checking published course material.
TNE will oversee the collection of this data every 6 months, in close relationship with the country teams and CCT cluster advisers.
Cluster and regional level relationships will be monitored separately, by the CCT and TNE cluster advisers
