Below you will find links to resources you should plan on completing prior to the first day of  your CATWALK training.   You may want to set aside 10 minutes for each reading and about 30 minutes for the Interpretation review.  You will also receive a copy of the book “Owl Sight” via email so that you can read more about the CAT process and what we have learned in our 25 years of working with congregations. We also suggest that you look around our website so you are familiar with the helpful tips and other tools that we offer.  

We look forward to working with you and please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help you in your work or if we can answer any questions.
