Diamond Lake Lutheran, Minneapolis, MN

This is the fourth or fifth time I have used the CAT with a congregation. I believe it is one of the best tools out there to gain valuable information and needed information for a congregation during a transition time or in planning for the future. (June 2022)

Christ Episcopal Church Valdosta, Georgia

I would highly recommend Holy Cow.

The charts were extremely helpful demonstrating our current position and where we actually need to be. I liked the comparisons to other churches to be understand our rankings. Our interpreter was excellent and did a fantastic job of helping us understand the data. (June 2022)

Presbytery of Mackinac

It was an excellent experience, utilized a large number of the presbytery in the information gathering portion and helped our presbytery get to a new place of movement.

Our work enabled hope which had been lacking, as well as next steps to accomplish a plan. Another benefit was that the whole presbytery was part of the formation. (May, 2022)

New Covenant Community Church, Akron

The time that Emily and Elizabeth so graciously offered to us was truly illuminating and enlightening, and their presentation was engaging, insightful, and immensely helpful. At our Governing Board Meeting, everyone commented about what a gift it was to learn from them. (May, 2022)

Living Word Lutheran Church, Graham, WA

The CAT helped in finding out our strengths and concerns when choosing a new pastor. Our consultant was fantastic! A wealth of information and knowledge. Understanding and caring personality!

Do not try to use people within your congregation to try to develop questions and interpret results. Professionals are necessary! (April 2022)

St Luke’s Episcopal Church, Park City, UT

The Congregation Assessment Tool gave amazing insight to our members that will help us move forward. Susan was amazing. Her knowledge and interpretation was easy to comprehend. She was sensitive to our participants, and kept us on track.

Holy Cow! Consulting is a very comprehensive, organized group! (February 2022)

St. Andrews-Covenant Presbyterian Church Wilmington, NC

Emily Swanson did our Zoom sessions. She was thoroughly informative; but more importantly loving and grace-filled. She saw our struggles without knowing what they are – proof that data is so important.

I would highly recommend this experience for any church going through transition time. (February 2022)

First Presbyterian of Mt. Gilead, Ohio

Excellent ability to explain the CAT results in a way we could all understand. Very positive and helpful even when presenting the church’s challenges. Great guidance moving forward with pastor search. The presentation served this leadership team well. I would hope that more churches take advantage of the gift of Holy Cow. (November 2021)

Christ Episcopal Church Smithfield, Virginia

Susan Czolgosz’s interpretation of our Vital Signs report was extremely insightful and gracefully presented. The information will certainly prove critical as we formulate our Parish Profile and move forward as a congregation to call a new rector and set priorities. She is the consummate professional who held our undivided attention throughout. Well done! (January 2022)
