What I will evaluate in this project is whether the ABI accomplishes its stated purpose in the lives of those who participate. Do they find themselves equipped and motivated to serve in their congregations with greater confidence? Do they feel adequately equipped to function outside of their congregations in the community for the spread of the Church of Jesus Christ? What needs to be strengthened in the ABI? What needs to be changed in the ABI? What can the ABI do to reach more people within the Church? What kind of mechanism can best be used for periodic evaluation of the AIM?
