Posted Sep 20, 2021

The FaithX Project and TryTank Experimental Laboratory are seeking 700-volunteer respondents to take part in a proof-of-concept experiment for a proposed regular 2-minute mini-survey called “Episcopal Pulse.”

Respondents will answer brief, 1-2 question, regular mini-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. The experiment would last 6-9 months.

The selection process will be designed to form a representative cross-section of the Episcopal Church. Respondents are expected to be associated with the Episcopal Church at the congregational, diocesan, or denominational level.

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