Financial Peace University (FPU), the 13-week program taught by Dave Ramsey, will be held in Maryville at Mount Lebanon Baptist Church, 3508 Wildwood Road. The classes will begin Tuesday, Jan. 12, at 6:30 p.m. Contact Terrance Morton at 865-406-3032 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register.
As they work on a Total Money Makeover, the average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 91 days after beginning FPU and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18 to 24 months. “We’ve actually relieved ourselves of over $50,000 worth of debt in two years just from using these principles,” said Russ Lee, former FPU participant.
Dave Ramsey began teaching FPU classes in 1994 every night around Nashville. In 1997, FPU was made available on video across the country with thousands of classes around the nation today.
The program is made up of 13 lessons taught by Dave on DVD in a fun and entertaining way. “I like to put the cookies on the shelf where everyone can reach them,” says Ramsey. After each lesson the group meets to help each other plan budgets, discuss successes and temptations, and support each other in their journey to beat debt and build wealth.
Each class participant needs a kit. Special rates are routinely available online at www.daveramsey.com or by calling 888-227-3223. Included in the cost of the kit is a lifetime family membership to FPU, allowing the participant to return to any class at anytime for a refresher course. The kit also includes 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.”
