Ministries Launched

Date: June 5, 2023

In the business that is our every day, it makes sense to pause every once in a while and take stock of our work. Recently, I looked at the more than 90 experiments we have conducted to see what lasting impact TryTank is having.

It turns out that we have given birth to 13 new ministries which we then passed on to partners to continue the work! Among them are: Episcopal Prayer on Alexa, Latino Ministry in a Box, HeartEdge USA, Virtual Preaching Monks, Spanish Missalette, Digital Church, Episcopal Pulse, Blessing of the Animals Evangelism, and Holy Week Experience. It is so exciting to see these experiments now having a life of their own!

It’s also interesting to see the experiments which never made it. Be it the prohibitive cost, the lack of interest, or simply that it did not work. The one thing all of them have in common is that they represent faithful innovation. We do it to spread the Gospel of Jesus. If we keep that at our center, we’re doing just fine!
