Faith-based Measurement & Metrics

Many faith-based organizations are increasingly concerned that secular systems of measurement and evaluation do not fully reflect their organizations’ work or desired impact. Calls have been made for the development of “faith-based measurement and metrics”. This framework includes ‘spiritual’ outcomes valued by faith-based organizations but often not measured in mainstream impact evaluations, such as a person’s experience with trust, hope, and love.

In 2015, a group of researchers with experience with these topics convened in New York City at Salvation Army NYC Offices to review current work related to “Faith-based Metrics and Measurement”.
