Financial Peace University

Did you know that money related problems are the #1 cause of marriage fights and divorce in our country? Beginning Sunday, April 7, at 2:00 pm, CBC will be presenting Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU).

We all need a plan for our money. FPU teaches God’s way of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, give, spend, and save wisely, and much more!

The average FPU family pays off $5300 in debt and saves $2700 in the first 90 days! 

The curriculum being presented will be the new material (being released just before the class starts) and classes meet for an hour and a half each week for nine weeks. For a full preview of FPU, click here.

Phillip and Martha Stevens are excited to be leading this class to help you achieve financial freedom. Like many of us, Phillip learned financial lessons the hard way. Here is Phillip’s financial testimony:

21 years old, a ton of credit card debt, student loans, motorcycle loan and a car loan. A $100 payment on one of many maxed out credit cards paid $95 towards interest and $5 cleared off the balance.

That was where I was 20 years; I was completely addicted to spending money, I felt empowered everytime I used my credit card or got a loan. Then I met a beautiful young lady and started thinking about my future and realizing I was going to have no future if I didn’t get help and that scared me! For me, my help came through the teaching of Larry Burkett (Larry passed away about 9 years ago). Today others are paving the way to help teach people, including Dave Ramsey and FPU. My wife, Martha and I are going to be coordinating a new FPU class using Dave’s brand new 9-week course curriculum, we are absolutely fired up to have the opportunity once again to be involved with this.

Applying the principles Dave teaches truly does work and can transform your finances. Today Martha and I live debt free and we truly believe you can too! We’re teaching our kids these same things and God willing they will never borrow money from anyone for anything. We have them on a plan to allow them to pay for college, car, and even put down 100% on their first house, now that’s freedom!!!
