FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY
Providing sound biblical coaching to help people be in a posture of openhandedness with their finances.
Financial Peace University
We have found the biblically based Financial Peace University (FPU) to be a catalyst to lasting improvement in KCC families financial futures. Thousands of KCC families have experienced this life change since we started partnering with Dave Ramsey’s FPU program. Take the next step and join a class today.
God is on the move at Kensington. Our leadership team and spouses went through Financial Peace University not long ago. Since then we have witnessed thousands of Kensington families experience life change as a result of applying biblical truths to their personal finances. Millions of dollars of debt has been eliminated, lives changed, and marriages saved by applying these simple to understand hard to implement principles. The real blessing for me personally is seeing people create lives of margin that allow them to hear and respond to the Lord’s calling on their lives.
We are excited that you are considering joining us for this life changing 9 week study on personal finance.
A few housekeeping notes: Please purchase your membership kit online when you register. Generally membership kits are not available the day of class unless arranged in advance through the Help Bank. If you already have your FPU class materials we would still like you to register online for room planning purposes, just check the “already have membership materials’ box when you register.
Just want to check it out first? Please come, we think you will love it. The class materials for the first two weeks are available on the Resources page of this site. You can download and bring them to class if you want to check it out before purchasing a kit or if your kit has not arrived yet. Everyone welcome!
Fall registration will open in August. Please contact [email protected] with any questions.
What will I learn in Financial Peace University?
Financial Peace University (FPU) is a nine-week class on money taught on video by America's most trusted financial guru, Dave Ramsey. You will learn the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more! We have a team of Dave Ramsey Certified counselors and FPU graduates that will facilitate the class and lead the small group discussion after the video.
Is there a cost to attend FPU?
You will need an FPU membership kit to attend. Kensington does not charge nor receives any compensation from Ramsey and our hosts are volunteers. The cost is directly between the participant and Ramsey and costs vary. Membership kit pricing can be found through Dave Ramsey, here. Kits are not available for purchase at the class.
How often do FPU classes meet?
Classes are held once per week for 9 consecutive weeks.
Does each family member need to purchase a membership kit?
No. The membership covers the whole family living under the same roof and engaged couples.
What is the average size of the class?
Each class size averages between 8–12 families (12–24 people) - sometimes even larger based on registrations.
What happens if I miss one class?
As part of your lifetime membership to FPU, you will receive audio discs of all 9 lessons in your kit. If you miss a class, simply review the audio during the week and discuss a meaningful highlight with your coordinator when you return to class. You could also ask your coordinator about possibly making up the session or borrowing the DVD. If a coordinator loans out a DVD—with the promise that it will be returned at least two days prior to the next class—we suggest they only do so if they get a $35 deposit on the DVD. That's what it will cost to replace it.
How many classes do I need to attend in order to graduate?
You must attend 8 of the 9 classes to qualify for a graduation certificate.
Can I get any additional assistance?
Yes! Depending on your situation there are specific care structures in place. Please speak with me off line to discuss.
Who benefits from this program?
Everyone truly benefits from this program, regardless of age (whether you are 21 or 61), regardless of income (whether you make $12,000 or over $100,000 per year), and regardless of marital status. Everyone benefits from FPU!
How is each class structured?
Each class session lasts approximately 1.5 hours. During the first hour, Dave Ramsey teaches on video. During the remaining time class members come together for small-group discussion. Group members support each other and hold each other accountable as they work together to transform their financial future.
