Test and Learn

September 12th, 2014 by Beth A. Lewis

At Augsburg Fortress we often use the motto “test and learn!”  This doesn’t come without a focus on deep listening to our customers and intentionally inviting feedback in many ways from people across the Church.


sparkhouse Senior Editor Dawn Rundman sent me this photo showing several of our colleagues working together packing field test materials for a new Sunday School curriculum in development.  Thirty congregations across the USA have agreed to test these materials on September 21 and 28 with children in grades K-6, then send us feedback.

This feedback helps us produce great curricula such as the ones you’ve already seen: SparkHolyMoly, Connect, and Whirl, plus our new children’s faith formation resource, sparkhouse online?

We love hearing from you!  Tell us via comments on this blog post, emails, tweets, Facebook posts or your preferred means of communication what you like about our resources, what you don’t care for, and what would be even better….this applies not only to faith formation resources for children, youth & adults from sparkhouse but also to worship, music, congregational life resources from Augsburg Fortress and text and reference materials from Fortress Press.
