Most Christian organisations are missing out on the power of measuring and communicating the impact that they are having – both socially and spiritually. Casting vision for transformation is critical as it allows people to understand the dreams and goals of an organisation, but measuring and communicating impact then allows successes to be celebrated and processes to be improved moving forward. Furthermore, clear reporting of impact could help to inspire the whole Church to join in transforming societies whilst enabling projects to qualify for funding beyond the normal Christian avenues.
The following document from Eido Research outlines a plan to develop a framework and research process that will enable Christian mission and development organisations, educational institutions and churches to measure and communicate the social and spiritual impact of their work. Together these will form the Kingdom Impact Framework (KIF).
