Financial Freedom Classes

Financial Peace University (FPU)
What could the people of God do for His Kingdom if they were debt-free? Find out the answer to this and other pertinent questions in a Financial Peace University class.

The FPU program is a 10-week video study created by Dave Ramsey that teaches how to apply proven common sense principles that will allow you to walk in financial peace and become debt-free. The cost is $90 for the membership kit.

*Note: When the 10-week program has begun, you are welcome to start in the middle and make up the classes you missed during the next cycle. However in order to get the maximum benefit of the program we recommend taking the classes in order from start to finish, and we don't recommend beginning after the third week.

A Parent Student Guide to College Planning
Sunday, April 29  |  12:30pm
Millbrook Campus,  Rm 753/766
College is more expensive – and more important – than ever before. As a result, many students are coming out of school with significant student loan debt and mediocre results. In this workshop, we’ll speak with parents AND students on how to properly prepare for college, including an overview of financial aid, scholarships, grants, student loans and the Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA). Parents will receive additional info on various college saving vehicles such as state 529 plans, the Coverdale Education Savings Account (ESA) and tax issues around saving for and paying for your student’s college experience. Students will have a frank discussion about the importance of being invested in the process and will get tips on choosing a school and degree program along with a primer on student loan debt and the challenges it creates post-graduation. If you are a high school student or the parent of a child attending college in the next few years, you shouldn’t miss this workshop! Lunch is provided and child care is available for children 10 and under.

Financial Mentoring

Trained counselors help people and families evaluate their assets, liabilities, income and expenses. With this information, they are assisted in developing a spending plan to effectively allocate income, faithfully tithe, pay bills in a timely manner, eliminate debt, increase savings and create surpluses for God's kingdom. The resulting peace and growing contentment enable counselees to connect more intimately with God, family, others and the world.

There are two ways to get connected with a Financial Mentor. Fill out the Financial Snapshot form, save it, and then e-mail it to financial.freedom@crossroads.org OR you can complete a Mentor Request Form at our Financial Freedom Ministry table in the Grand Hallway.
