What if tried and true methods from the corporate world could raise your ministry’s probability of success by a considerable margin? TryTank, a lab for church growth and innovation, has developed a fresh straightforward framework for experiments in new ministry based on research and interviews. With three clear steps, this framework can have a lasting impact on any church that uses it. You can even start innovating today, using this specific and actionable process within your church community.

This workshop is for you if:

  • You want to try new things!
  • You’re curious about design thinking.
  • You want to learn a few tools that can help you maximize your chance of success.
  • Want to find the steps to prove your idea before you invest too much.
  • You want to take away practical skills you can share with others, to help them think about new ways of doing things.

Scripture is full of examples encouraging us to try new works in the name of God. This 2-hour workshop gives the tools and templates for how to do just that, and to find God in the failures as well as the successes.

This course is taught by the Rev. Lorenzo Lebrija, the founding director of the TryTank Experimental Lab, a joint venture for innovation in the church from Virginia Theological Seminary and General Theological Seminary.  Recipients will receive a copy of his book, How to Try:  Design Innovation and Church Innovation.
