Episcopal Pulse Survey

The Episcopal Pulse is a research initiative piloted by The FaithX Project and TryTank Experimental Laboratory, aimed at understanding the heartbeat of The Episcopal Church. ECF is proud to partner with FaithX to continue this program and gain insight into the health and hope of our church.

Exploring Episcopal Pulse

In 2022, TryTank Experimental Laboratory and The FaithX Project introduced the Episcopal Pulse experiment — a series of 39 weekly, 2-minute micro-surveys. These concise surveys featured 1-2 thought-provoking questions and engaged ordained and lay Episcopalians from all walks of life.

Diving Deeper

Building on the experiment’s success, ECF is thrilled to partner with FaithX to continue the Episcopal Pulse as a monthly 5-minute micro-survey in 2024. The Pulse will dive deeper into the topics explored in the pilot, giving ECF and FaithX insights on the most pressing topics facing our church today. These learnings will enrich our resources for congregational leaders and enhance our programs to better serve local Episcopal communities.
