What if tried and true methods from the corporate world could raise your ministry’s probability of success by a considerable margin?

Lorenzo Lebrija, director of TryTank, a lab for church growth and innovation, has developed a straightforward framework for experiments in new ministry based on research and interviews. With only three 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.

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

LORENZO LEBRIJA founded TryTank, the experimental Lab for church growth and innovation. He was the Chief Development Officer for the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, and served as Pastor at St. John’s in San Bernardino and priest associate at St. Athanasius in Los Angeles. He earned his Master’s of Divinity at the General Theological Seminary, as well as an MBA from Florida International University.
