Course aims to provide hope to participants
More than two million families have positively changed their financial future through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University.
The nine-week course 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.
A Financial Peace University course will begin June 8 at 10:45 a.m. at the New Life Assembly of God, at 5146 S. Leonard Blvd.
For information and to register, contact Jason Goss at (239) 369-6147.
Financial Peace University lessons also include guest speakers Rachel Cruze, Ramsey's daughter, and Chris Hogan, a counselor and speaker for Ramsey's organization.
The revised Financial Peace University is offered through churches and community centers.
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.
