Number of Influenced Networks
INDICATOR PHRASING: Number of church networks influenced to become actively engaged with CCT
What is its purpose?
Demonstrating the scale of CCT through measuring the number of different networks actively engaging in a CCT process 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
‘Church Network' refers to a group or system of interconnected churches that are non denominational in nature. They do not have an overarching governance system, but instead share similar values and commit to sharing resources (learning, best practices, strategic issues and in some cases financial resources).
This measures the national level. If networks are also engaged at the regional level this will be tracked separately by TNE.
A church network should not be counted if it merely has some facilitators who have been trained in CCT. Instead, networks must be actively engaged' at the national level.
Church networks can be engaged directly by Tearfund or indirectly through partners and allies.
For a church network 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 CCT.
Country teams should monitor their engagement with church networks in a “Stakeholders mapping” spreadsheet. This mapping should reflect and track the engagement and relationships with church denominations and 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 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.
