FaithX Seeks New Respondents for Episcopal Pulse: A Weekly Micro-Survey

The FaithX Project
Posted Oct 19, 2022

The FaithX Project is seeking new volunteer respondents to increase the sample size of its weekly 2-minute micro-survey called “Episcopal Pulse.”

Respondents answer brief, 1-2 question, weekly 2-min. micro-surveys, designed to quickly take the pulse of the Episcopal Church on a single issue relevant to the life of the denomination, its dioceses, and their congregations. Applicants are asked to make a 6-9 month commitment to answer the question sent them.

If you would like to partner with us in this important project, submit your application to be a respondent here:

FaithX began this project as experiment manager under TryTank Experimental Laboratory. In September, the Episcopal Pulse experiment concluded successfully and TryTank bequeathed the project to FaithX.

For more information or if you’d like to start a weekly pulse-type micro-survey in your denomination, contact the Rev. Ken Howard, executive director of FaithX at
