Financial Peace University (FPU), the 13-week program taught by Dave Ramsey, is offering a new class in Columbus beginning Jan. 18.
It will meet at Third Day Baptist Church, 7880 Schomburg Road.
As they work on a Total Money Makeover, the average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 91 days after beginning FPU and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18 to 24 months, according to FPU.
“We’ve actually relieved ourselves of over $50,000 worth of debt in two years just from using these principles,” Russ Lee, a former FPU participant, said in a media release.
Never miss a local story.
Dave Ramsey began teaching FPU classes in 1994 every night around Nashville, Tenn. In 1997, FPU was made available on video across the country with thousands of classes around the nation today.
Topics covered in the class include:
