    Financial Peace University Returns to WEFC January 15th

    What is Financial Peace University (FPU)?
    FPU is a 9 week course that teaches not only how to budget and make wise money decisions, but also how to save for the future and give more freely. The course will be offered at WEFC on Tuesdays from January 15 – March 12, 2019.

    Using clear biblical principles, the course includes lessons on eliminating debt, building wealth and giving like you’ve never dreamt you would. Even if you are very good at managing money, you will be challenged and motivated, while meeting new friends who are also learning to implement what they are learning in this course.

    Each week, class members view a video lesson led by bestselling author (Total Money Makeover) and financial counselor Dave Ramsey. After the video, you will split up into small groups to discuss and review what we have learned. Most students agree that they get almost as much from the small group discussion as they do from the class itself.

    If you’re looking for a way to improve your financial future at a very low cost, this is the class for you.

    What Will You Learn?

    • Step by Step Cash Flow Planning
    • Debt Snowball Plan Technique to Eliminate Debt
    • How to Invest Wisely
    • Saving for Emergencies
    • Wealth Building
    • And Much Much more

    Ramsey’s motto for this course has always been, “Live like nobody else, so one day, YOU can live like no one else.” As an alumnus stated not too long ago, this course does require some discipline and sacrifice, but it’s nothing like the sacrifice that Jesus made for us on the cross.

    Attend a Free Preview – December 6th:
    Your facilitators, WEFC’s Dave Zaugg and Pat Steinglein invite you to attend a FREE Preview on Thursday, December 6 at 7:00 pm in Fellowship Hall. Join them for an hour long session, without obligation, to learn more and ask questions and to determine if this course is right for you and your family. If you are married, both spouses are encouraged to attend the preview, as well as each class, once the course begins. $109 per family pays for all resources needed to attend the 9-week course. If you are not able to come to the preview but are interested in the course, you can sign-up on-line. Feel free also to email Dave Zaugg with any questions.

    About Your Facilitators:
    Dave Zaugg has been involved with FPU since Mike and Chris Roberts first brought this course to WEFC in 2009. This will be the 4th class where he has either been a student or co-facilitator.

    Pat Steinglein is a long time alumnus of this course. Pat is willing to talk of Dave’s teaching to anyone that will listen and has attended Dave Ramsey’s personal presentation in Boston (Dave Zaugg finds very difficult to hide his jealousy).

    About Dave Ramsey:
    Dave Ramsey is a personal money management expert. By age 26 he had established a $4 million real estate portfolio, only to lose it to mismanagement and very costly debt by the time he was 30. His life’s work since has been to teach others how to be financially responsible so they can acquire enough wealth to take care of themselves and loved ones, live prosperously into old age and to give generously to others.

    Dave knows firsthand what “Financial Peace” means. He has rebuilt his financial life and now devotes himself to helping ordinary people understand the negativity behind their own financial distress and to set their path right. Dave has a B.S. degree in Finance and Real Estate from University of Tennessee.

    Comments from past FPU students:

    “The best $100 we ever spent”

    “This course has changed our life and our spending habits by working together as partners”

    “As a single mom, I never had big plans for the future. After taking this course, I’m off food stamps, in college working on my degree, and saving for my child’s education.”

    “Nine years ago when we first took this class, we figured we would never be able to retire. Thanks to Dave Ramsey’s course and our diligence in implementing his plan, we will not only retire this year but we will be traveling the world and giving like we never thought we could.”
