The Ministry Leadership Center is now MLC…

We work with values-based organizations and programs to clarify, strengthen, and demonstrate impact.

Our platform of empirically validated social science and evaluation methodologies, coupled with a deep understanding of the distinctive priorities and culture of values-based organizations, advances your impact and mission.


Gaining a clear, shared understanding of the outcomes you seek to achieve and the stakeholder perspectives that shape your work. 


Measuring how well your program or initiative is working using scientifically rigorous methods to provide credible, useful information to answer your most pressing questions. 


Leveraging the insights and knowledge accrued through analysis and evaluation to strengthen your impact and chart a course to the future. 

MLC’s familiarity with the expectations and procedures of the Hilton Foundation—and understanding of the needs of faith-based organizations seeking to enhance their impact—can help partners that must discern, clearly articulate and measure their expected outcomes.
