Thanks for your interest in Financial Peace University. As a church we are excited to offer this class in hopes of providing a pathway to financial freedom. Being enslaved to debt can be debilitating. Proverbs 22:7 says that “the borrower is the slave to the lender.” The average American is over $9,000 in credit card debt alone. On top of this, 78% of the time, when the debt is paid off, it grows back. Why? Because credit is used, instead of cash. FPU gives you the tools to manage your finances wisely. Wise stewardship involves making good decisions with your time, talents and your money.

What will you go over? Out of the half a million people who have taken this class, the average family pays off $5,300 in debt, saves $2,700 in the first 91 days, and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage in 18-24 months. In this class you will be given the tools to get out of debt, budget, save and manage your money wisely. You will also be taught about being generous with your money and what it means to serve others with it. (Other areas covered include, quick ways to pay off debt, saving, budgeting, investing, paying off mortgages, life insurance, college tuition, paying cash over debit/credit, retirement plans, avoiding shady marketing, learning to bargain and generous giving.) Course Format? The FPU course will be nine weeks long from April 21st–June 16th and will consist of classes that cover budgeting and tools to get out of debt.
