Financial Peace University program coming to Imperial
Nearly 2.5 million families have positively changed their financial future through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU).
The nine-week course, coming to Imperial in September, provides families and individuals with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success.
The course meets once a week where a different lesson is taught by Ramsey on DVD followed by a small-group discussion. Lessons include budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing.
FPU will be held in Imperial at: Zion Lutheran Church in Imperial. The classes will begin Sunday, Sept. 7 at 10:15 a.m. Contact David Kahle at (308)882-5655 for more information or to register.
Through common-sense principles and small-group accountability, FPU gives people the tools they need to change their behavior and succeed financially.
On average families who complete FPU pay off $5,300 and save $2,700 in the first 90 days. Following the class nearly 94 percent of those families budget regularly.
Ramsey knows first-hand the pain that financial stress can cause. After creating a net worth of more than a million dollars by age 26, he quickly lost it all. Since then Ramsey has helped families and individuals across the country learn how to get control of their finances and avoid debt so they don’t have to experience the same pain he did.
FPU lessons also include guest speakers Rachel Cruze, speaker and daughter of Dave Ramsey, and Chris Hogan, counselor and speaker for the Dave Ramsey organization.
After purchasing a membership each participant receives a workbook, Dave Ramsey’s Complete Guide to Money, an envelope system and an audio CD library. Participants will also have access to budgeting forms and MP3s of all the lessons.
