ministries have long been successful in providing quality social
services to the needy. But standard process-based evaluations
often fail to register these life-changing transformations.
Moreover, as a result of this limited evaluation method, many

leading tool for responding to this challenge.. Not only does this
discipline document the degree to which ministries achieve specific
goals, but it also helps faith-based organizations to be more
accountable both to those they serve and to those who fund them,
making them better stewards of their funds and increasing clients'
individual results. Ultimately, outcome-based evaluation begins a
cycle of continuing improvement and greater success. Hear three experts tell their
