Yes the crashing happens on more than just ministra app happens in Plex as well and if you find my post about Roku bricking old devices it will be interesting to know what Roku device you have?
as me and 4 friends all have a Roku 2 box and it’s funny how this issue started happening all at the same time after an update. I have given up now and gone with a firestick zero issues so far, Roku are shady hence removing minstra and bricking peoples devices so you have to upgrade
The Roku 3 (model 4230) was released April 2015, so now approaching 6 1/2 years old. While Roku still supports it with OS updates, providers don't always continue their support for older players. They have the ability to restrict what model devices their channel will work on.
For the users with a Roku 2, be aware there are five different versions of the 2. The newest version was the model 4210, also released April 2015. Of the five versions, only the two most recent models are still supported by Roku (the 4210 and 2720, released Sept 2013). All earlier players are no longer supported by Roku. They simply don't have the processing power to run the latest version of the OS, as well as many of the latest channels. Most service providers have stopped supporting the older players as well.

@sparmar, as mentioned by @MrBluePlaydoh yesterday, you will need to reinstall the new app that has been released yesterday. It is now called Ministra Play. The existing app (Ministra Player) is still throwing error and you can just remove/uninstall it.
Try removing the channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channel back once more.
Does this clear up the issue you are seeing? Please keep us posted.
