Number of Influenced Church Denominations
INDICATOR PHRASING: Number of church denominations influenced to become actively engaged with CCT
What is its purpose?
Demonstrating the scale of CCT through measuring the number of different church denominations Tearfund is actively engaging with on a CCT process either 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
‘Denomination’ refers to a recognized autonomous branch of the Christian Church (including Mega Churches) which governs, shares doctrine and resources a group of churches.
Mega churches can be counted as a denomination, even if they don't use that title themselves, if they have governance across smaller churches.
A denomination should not be counted if it merely has some facilitators who have been trained in CCT. This is about strategic engagement with the denomination.
Church denominations can be engaged directly by Tearfund or indirectly through partners and allies.
For a denomination to be ‘actively engaged’ on CCT, Tearfund, or our partners, should be intentionally building a strategic relationship with key actors at the denominational level to journey with them around CCT.
Country teams should monitor their engagement with church denominations in a “Stakeholders mapping” spreadsheet. This mapping should reflect and track the engagement and relationships with church denominations and church networks that are being strategically targeted.
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.
CCT coordinators at country level should monitor church denominations at the national level regularly and keep progress updated.
TNE and CCT advisers should provide support in the mapping of church denominations, prioritizing, support and advice for strategic relationship building and monitoring the progress.
Cluster and regional level relationships will be monitored separately, by the CCT and TNE cluster advisers
