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.

Michael is not only my friend, but my professional coach! He really brings out the best in me!

Dr. Joe Loughlin

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.

I am a coach and have worked with Michael on several occasions in different capacities. His approach has always been one of integrity and thoroughness. He is uniquely gifted and trained in helping others reach their full potential. I would recommend Michael to anyone who's serious about growing personally and professionally.

Val Hastings, MCC, Founder of Coaching4Clergy

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 attended one of Michael's luncheons where he spoke on Professional Coaching. Having plans as a small business owner, I was intrigued. In my first conversation with Michael, I was convinced. His professionalism and expertise was evident from the start and I reaped immediate benefits.

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.

Dr. Taylor Sandlin

Michael's ministry has had a great impact on my life, if you need an outside voice of reason to help clear up the confusion of your life choices he is a good place to start.

Amos Humphries

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.

2013 Birkman Client

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

Cheryl Jones

I recommend Michael whether you are a small business owner or a large organization. He helps you develop insight and planning that begins at the very core of you and your staff. Michael upholds standards and ethics geared at helping you achieve increase in all capacities.
