Financial Peace University

Financial Peace University

FPU money principles were a huge help during a time of crisis
- from an anonymous church member

As a single parent, I can personally testify that the money principles taught by Dave Ramsey in Financial Peace University really do work. Having an emergency fund, living off a working monthly cash flow plan, and finding great bargains are all critical components to a successful financial plan, especially when going through any type of personal family crisis.

When my spouse left the home a few years ago, I relied heavily on the financial instruction I received through FPU. In spite of a lengthy, expensive legal battle, I was able to walk through the entire process without incurring any new debt. I give God all the glory for His help as well as for FPU’s Bible-based money principles. This stuff really does work!

Missy Wilson does a great job of coordinating each class with the heart of a teacher. If you are going through some tough financial challenges right now, I would encourage you to attend Financial Peace University. Your personal and financial life will never be the same once you do!

What Other FBR Members Are Saying About FPU

“The first class immediately grabbed our attention.  We both realized our dire financial state and how financial peace could be a reality in their lives if we only made a few changes.  Dave Ramsey’s humor and no-nonsense approach was a motivator in bringing both of us back to class each week.  Dave made money management fun and entertaining.  We learned more about each other and ourselves as it related to finance. We’re in the driver’s seat now and it feels good! This would not have been possible without Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University.” – Shunton and Christie Hammond

“By the time we graduated from the class, we were able to complete Baby Step 1 ($1,000 emergency fund) and begin our Debt Snowball, paying off over $3,000 in debt so far- all this after just 13 weeks!” – Levi and Tiffany Gilmore

“Our only regret is that FPU wasn’t around when we were in our 20s. We highly recommend FPU to all ages, both single and married, who want to change their financial future in a mighty way. We are so blessed to have been able to get started down the path to financial freedom, even at this stage of life.  Praise the Lord and thank you Dave Ramsey!” – Don and George Keith

“Just an update for a bright, Monday morning…we paid off $5,000 in credit card debt. The baby steps are coming along. Thanks for leading the FPU class.” – Chuck and Melody Bruns

The Legacy Journey: How To Make A Financial Impact On The Next Generation

The Legacy Journey is the class that will teach individuals and families how to live and leave a legacy – one that will bless their families, community, and the world for generations to come. This exciting new class will address questions like what does the Bible really say about money? About wealth? How much money makes you wealthy? How much does God expect you to give to others? How does wealth affect your friendships, marriage and children? How much is enough? How should you invest for the future? How do you ensure that your family is truly secure?

The Legacy Journey is an all-new, seven-week class that meets once a week for 90 minutes. It incorporates small group discussions and interactive class activities to encourage accountability and discipleship. This brand-new course doesn't replace Financial Peace University (FPU); it builds on the foundation for your money that FPU provides. This is the class for both FPU graduates and anyone who wants a biblical framework for dealing with money and wealth. You'll learn practical how-tos on investing wisely, planning your estate, giving generously, and building generational wealth
