Classes Start June 3, 2019
Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, the Financial Peace University course presents practical steps to win with money. You’ll learn how to walk out of debt, build significant savings, and leave a lasting legacy for your family and community. You will also learn the truth about credit cards and credit bureaus, how marketing can sway your spending decisions, what insurance you actually need, and how to plan for college and retirement.
Financial Peace University is a proven course that started out as a small class taught in a church. Twenty years after the course was developed, its creator, Dave Ramsey, continues to teach people God’s way of handling money. Lisa, a recent course graduate says, “Dave explains so much about money and how to handle it the way God intended. You will learn a lot about money.”
The cost of the nine-week course is $109 dollars. Kelly, a first-time homebuyer says, “The great thing is you pay for the class, but get back so much more.”
The course is structured around a seven-step plan.
Step 2: Pay off all debt, except mortgage
Step 3: Put three to six months of expenses in savings
Step 4: Invest 15% of your household income into retirement
Step 5: Save for your children’s college
Step 6: Pay off your mortgage early
Step 7: Build Wealth and Give
Course coordinator, Janie Hamilton, says that each step is achievable, but moving from step one to step seven takes time. “It can take three to four years before you make it past step three, but it can be done,” Hamilton explains.
