Financial hope for more than 1.5 million families

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Nearly one and a half million families have been able to positively change their financial situation through Financial Peace University, the 13-week course taught by Dave Ramsey on DVD. FPU teaches families and individuals common-sense principles like how to make a plan with their money so they are able to free themselves of debt and build lasting wealth. FPU is available for churches, military, non-profit agencies, and businesses. FPU will be held in Centerville at:

Centerville Assembly of God located at 1020 East Maple St. in Centerville. The classes will begin Sunday, March 4 at 5:30 p.m. Contact Brad Dittmer at (641) 437-4673 for more information or to register.

Dave Ramsey knows first-hand what it is like to be broke and hopeless. Because of his experiences, he decided to help other people change the way they handle their money and began teaching FPU in 1994.

After each lesson there is a small group discussion that provides accountability and encouragement. Topics include saving for emergencies, budgeting, relationships and money, and getting out debt.

The current economy has people feeling more hopeless than ever when it comes to their money. In an effort to recover the economy from the ground up, Ramsey has begun The Great Recovery that challenges individuals to take personal responsibility for their finances and leaders to educate others about finances through programs such as FPU.

Each class participant needs a kit that includes a lifetime family membership to FPU, an FPU workbook, an FPU envelope system, 13 audio lessons, bonus CD, budgeting forms, debit card holders, and Ramsey’s best-selling book – “Financial Peace.”

Dave Ramsey is America’s trusted voice on money and business. He’s authored four New York Times best-selling books and is heard by more than 5 million listeners each week on more than 500 radio stations.
