Your time is too short to get discouraged about the things around you. Make the…
Time flies when you love your work and make a difference for so many.
I don’t typically count these things, but after 20 years of successful work, I thought I’d stop and do a rough count (from the records) of what has kept me busy.

As you may know, True Course is just me as the service provider, with Meredith McAfee having served as my Executive Administrative assistant for about 12 years. On one or two occasions, we’ve also used independent contractor coaches for a time, but their hours are not counted here.
I take a limited number of clients by referral and invitation only. Some clients have been with me for ten years or more.
Our incorporation charter for True Course Ministries is dated September 30, 2003. We added True Course Living, Learning, Leading (for-profit) in 2008. In 2016, we brought both together under the name True Course Life & Leadership Development, though they still operate as separate entities, two businesses, one name.
In addition, I earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the Baylor University School of Education in 2005. I taught classes at the George W. Truett Theological Seminary and consulted with their Doctor of Ministry program between 2002 and 2014. And a few other things that equipped me to serve clients even more effectively.
Many thanks to all of you who have made this possible through using our services in general, your donated support to True Course Ministries, and your prayers, encouragement, and referrals. Most of all, we give thanks to God, who has sustained us and clearly met us at the point of our need at every turn.
We’re not done yet!
