Financial Peace University Graduates at Wellspring!
FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY GRADUATES AT WELLSPRING!
Financial Peace University (FPU) provides biblically-based, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. We all need a plan for our money and that’s why FPU is for everyone – from the financially secure to the financially distressed. During this nine-week class, members learned how to manage their resources, spend and save wisely, get rid of debt, and much more!
This money-management course is taught by America’s most trusted financial guru, Dave Ramsey. For more than 20 years, thousands of churches have hosted FPU and seen more than 4.5 million people learn to handle money God’s ways and take control of their futures. They’ve beaten debt while learning to save wisely and give generously. They’ve been taught how to create a budget they can actually follow, and they’ve rewritten their stories—changing their futures forever.
The class at Wellspring just wrapped up on May 22nd, and here’s the 9-Week Results in our Final Group Snapshot:
Total Students Graduated: 16 (representing 13 families / singles)
Financial Change of Position per family: $3,762.54 in just the 9 weeks of the FPU course!
A great investment for a $99 course and 90 minutes a night.
Total non-mortgage debt paid off: $30,093
Total money saved: $18,820
Total credit cards closed or cut up: 27
Total change in charitable giving: Giving substantially more – 3

FPU walked these families through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more. Each session included a video teaching, class discussions, and homework that helped students apply what they’d learned. This class was led by experienced group facilitator and Wellspring attender, Jonathan Johnson.
“No matter if you are 21 or 61, just starting out or preparing for retirement, married, single, engaged, this class is for you. After coordinating five classes, I’ve seen amazing results for couples and singles at all stages of life,” Jonathan said. “Whether you can save your $1,000 simple emergency fund or be able to have one of those $8,000+ turnarounds. Over the last 9 weeks, 13 families have had their personal financial lives changed forever. I’m blessed to see God move in these families’ lives and be a part of what God is doing in this ministry.”
Stay tuned as we are planning our next Financial Peace University course at Wellspring for the fall of 2017!
