Financial Peace University

It's time to take back your freedom!

This fall, join a movement of people across Greater Austin who will be a part of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. FPU is a life-changing 9-week course that includes practical lessons to help you eliminate debt, build wealth, give like never before, and much more! Each lesson, taught by Dave Ramsey and his team of financial experts, is based on biblical wisdom and common sense.

Do you offer scholarships?

Many of us can cover this cost, but don’t let cost be the barrier that stops you. Reach out to us and we'd be happy to start the conversation around how to get you a membership.

Our heart is to bless as many people as possible. Our scholarships are made available through the donations of our congregation. As a result, there are a limited number of scholarships available. You can request a scholarship by completing our scholarship form.

Is there childcare available for groups?

Some groups offer childcare, and others do not. You'll be able to view the details of each group before registering for that group.

What will be different after FPU?

  • Live with a new vision for stewardship and generosity.
  • On average, members pay off $5,300 in debt and put $2,700 in savings following FPU.
  • 89% of members graduate with at least a $1,000 emergency fund.
  • Create a new normal for you and your family tree.

What is the investment?

The normal cost is $129 but because of our partnership with Ramsey Solutions, we have a discounted rate of $80.00 per family. This includes one-year membership to Financial Peace online resources.

What is Defying Gravity?

FPU groups are a part of our bigger Defying Gravity movement. Defying Gravity is a partnership between Dave Ramsey and churches around Greater Austin to help thousands of families experience freedom from the gravitational pull of consumer culture. Find out more here.

How can I help?

How can I pay it forward?
