Tired of debt? Are you emotionally fatigued from the cycle of deciding which bills to pay each month? Is your emergency fund a credit card? What about planning college tuition for the children? And what about retirement? Are you having trouble getting traction with your finances?
Debt is all around us. More than 70% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. Over 35% of Christian marriages end in divorce, and money problems are the number one cause. Financial Peace University has a long history of helping families successfully confront these problems head on. Financial Peace University is a biblically-based accountability curriculum that teaches you to manage God’s money and resources in a godly way. It empowers you to make the right financial decisions to achieve your financial goals, teaching you to eliminate debt, build wealth, and give like never before. On average, families reduce their debt by $5,300 and save $2,700 in just 91 days.
Who Is Financial Peace University For?
It’s for EVERYONE-from the financially secure to the financially distressed. Millions of people have attended Financial Peace University.
What Are The Benefits?
- Changed family trees. The changes in your financial behaviors affect your children’s and grandchildren’s futures. The decisions you make today will affect generations to come. Are you ready to change your life?
- Stronger marriages. Couples learn how to communicate about money, budgeting, spending, and saving and get on the same page about their finances.
- A solid financial foundation for singles. The accountability of the small groups help singles find accountability partners and use the "buddy system" to help them stay focused on their personal financial goals.
Is This Just Another Boring Financial Program?
No! Financial Peace University consists of a 9-week video curriculum taught by financial expert Dave Ramsey and his experts that incorporates small-group discussions to encourage accountability and discipleship. Most financial programs are boring, with confusing information and monotonous instructors. Financial Peace is very different! It is highly entertaining for everyone, with a unique combination of humor, informative financial advice, and biblical messages. Dave Ramsey and a couple of his select experts do all the teaching via video with volunteer coordinators leading the discussions after the videos.

Who Needs a Membership Kit?
(below is an excerpt from the FPU Frequently Asked Questions manual)
Q) Is it okay for a family to come to class together with only one Membership Kit?
A) Sharing a single kit is appropriate for engaged or married couples only. Our program is designed for families to do together, so parents with children still living at home are welcome to bring them to class, as well. Extended family members or adult children should, of course, purchase their own class membership and materials.
(Note: For the purposes of Financial Peace University Membership Kits, the term "Families" is defined by Tennessee law.)
