True Course Ministries

True Course Ministries is a Texas non-profit charitable corporation. Our ministry exists to provide tools for healthy emotional, spiritual, and personal growth and effectiveness for clergy, ministry, and the church.

As happens with many recent seminary graduates, my first ministry assignment left me somewhat isolated, especially compared to the community one had during seminary studies. Michael came alongside me and helped me develop habits and goals that would not only help me successfully navigate that period of my ministry, but also help set me on a lifelong journey of successful ministry. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for assistance in becoming the best minister that they can be.

Enjoyed your webinar today. I really appreciate your work. . . . My real question is "what do I really want?" I know that I want the things you mentioned today (health, resources, purpose, etc.), . . . Right now, I just feel like I'm putting out fires . . . instead of being strategic.

The work of True Course is helping our team members capitalize on similarities and differences in their personalities and styles for greater productivity. We are experiencing amazing camaraderie even in the most stressful times. Engaging True Course is not an expense, it's an investment.

Absolutely incredible and hit me in so many ways.

Webinar Participant

The Birkman is a non-biased/ straight forward approach which you can continually reference as you make decisions.  It will be an affirmation of your personality and an 'aha moment' about others.  It helped me have an awareness of who I am and how to handle myself in different situations.

I have always been skeptical when it comes to analytical testing. As I trudged through the questions of the Birkman I was doubtful that I would receive an analytical report that would truly teach me something new about myself or even how I might become a better leader. Upon receiving the report from the Birkman, I can honestly say that I was completely wrong in my skepticism. As I read through my report, I found myself nodding my head in agreement. There were even times where I said out loud “oh, that makes sense.” There you have it; I was wrong to doubt the Birkman test.

Having taken our managers through the Birkman assessment and Michael's training, I'm happy to say that we're functioning as a team much smoother now. Having a better understanding of each other creates a great deal more efficiency -- not to mention, pleasure in working together!

Dr. Michael Godfrey has had a lasting impact on my journey of faith and call which through True Course Ministries allowed me to embrace His unique plan and purpose for my life and His glory. I cannot stress how vital the mentoring and life coaching has been for clarity in ministry. Thank you Dr. Michael, for providing the tools and grace to make a difference in this life.

I wish this study had been a part of my master’s program. Task Lists are my constant companions, but I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never written a mission statement for myself.  I have one now.

I have participated in many corporate development initiatives in my career and I can truly commit that this is the absolute best team exercise I have experienced. The most impact for the time spent - I promise.
