    Training Resources

    There are three types of video trainings available below. We ask that Parish Point Persons and their Core Teams complete all three. Table Facilitators—who will be vital to the success of this initiative in your parish—have one specific training they need to complete.

    It is recommended that the Planning Training be completed well in advance of starting this study, followed by the Table Facilitator and Implementation Training closer to when you will begin, in order to ensure that you are prepared for a successful study. Supporting documents for each training video, including a presentation outline and downloadable slide deck, are also linked below.
