The project seeks to develop and implement strategies of curating, collaborating, and capacity-building in order to show why and how traditioned innovation is crucial to a vibrant, life-giving future.

About the Project

The heart of the project is the cultivation of hospitable spaces for reflection at the Christian and secular intersections. These intersections are crucial in principle for practicing traditioned innovation, and they are even more important given the current conditions of both the church and the world. We invite small groups of seasoned leaders to journey with us through curated conversations, life-giving spaces for reflection and innovation, and fostering dense networks of connection and support. 

The Traditioned Innovation project is made possible through the generosity of Lilly Endowment, Inc.

"Traditioned innovation is a mindset that enables us to focus on flourishing, creativity, and the life that really is life."

Storytelling & Case Studies

Cultivating Hope and Connection to God

We source and capture video stories of organizations and institutions making significant pivots together to address the crises of our time. Often, these stories expose deeper and interconnected challenges that call for creativity grounded in a deep understanding of identity and mission. In our storytelling, we seek to surface practices of traditioned innovation that respond to the most challenging problems of our present moment and inspire hope for our time.
