Why Choose True Course Ministries?
True Course understands the challenges that go hand-in-hand with positions of leadership, and we believe that the hurdles faced throughout the life of a congregational leader are particularly unique and require specific attention. We don't default to a one-size-fits-all mentality. And because we highly regard each congregational leader as an exceptional individual with unmatched ministry potential, we offer customized, results-oriented programs to address each area that concerns you. We approach every issue and individual in the context of real life ministry and today's Church while also keeping pastor and staff growth in mind, all in a continued effort to help you expand your ministry as you develop spiritually, personally, and mentally as a dynamic leader.
The Other Side of Ministry: Life After Seminary

Our Clients: Is This For Me?
Can you relate to conflict with a spouse or children, health issues related to stress, or the inability to meet the daily demands of ministry? Is your self-esteem in your ministry plummeting from excessive constructive criticism, or are you tired from dealing with seemingly never-ending church politics and staff personality conflicts? Do you sense divisive cliques within your congregation, hidden agendas, or unnecessary trials due to internal conflict?
When you allow a True Course professional to design and personalize program that will manage your own challenges, you'll discover ways to deal with these issues on a journey that promises life-changing results.
Early Detection, Early Treatment
Many of us are caught in the trap of thinking, "It'll never happen to me." especially in the ministry. We rarely see failure or trials coming at a distance, and idealism and naïveté can set any of us up for a variety of negative challenges.
Just as physicians encourage physical well-being practices, such as routine appointments to combat any disease or illness in its earliest stage, clergy should be mindful to take just as much care of themselves emotionally and physically. Regular evaluations of your aspirations, ministry roles, and administrative and organizational responsibilities with a True Course professional can help you detect and treat issue areas throughout your ministry and life, before they grow out of control.
