WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
Dave Ramsey and his teaching team will walk you through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more. Local classes are made up of small groups of people who live in your area or attend Prince of Peace and are a great way to share ideas, be encouraged, and stay motivated. Classes meet for nine weeks and are led by a volunteer coordinator. One Financial Peace University membership per family is all you need to get started in a class. After purchasing your membership, be sure to follow the directions in your order confirmation email.

Special Class - Technology and Tools (Sunday 2/9) - Our Financial Peace University course will provide you with a wide variety of tools on your journey.

Lesson 2. Baby Step 2 (Sunday 2/16) - Baby Step 2 is paying off all debt (except the house) using the debt snowball. You’ll learn that debt is not a tool to build wealth—it’s a thief!

Lesson 3. Baby Step 3 (Sunday 2/23) - Baby Step 3 is saving 3–6 months of expenses in a fully funded emergency fund. The emergency fund is Murphy repellent. It protects you from reaching for a credit card to cover emergencies, and it keeps you from living in fear of the next surprise expense!

Lesson 5. Buyer Beware (Sunday 3/15) - There are a million marketing tactics trying to get at your money and bust your budget, but in Lesson 5, you’ll learn how to gain power over your purchases! Learn when to put your shields up to defend your dollars—and when to get your dollars out and negotiate for a deal.
Lesson 6: The Role of Insurance (Sunday 3/22) - Lesson 6 is not your typical boring and confusing insurance talk. You’ll clearly understand the seven types of insurance you actually need and what you definitely don’t need. Getting the right insurance in place is one of the most important parts to your defensive game plan!

Lesson 9: The Great Misunderstanding (Sunday 4/12) - You can do everything we teach and you will prosper, but if you don’t understand this lesson, you will never have financial peace. In Lesson 9, you’ll learn how to manage money—God’s money—with an open hand and a generous heart.
