FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY
Providing sound biblical coaching to help people live in freedom financially and to enable them to have a posture of openhandedness.
Financial Peace University
We have found the Biblically based Financial Peace University (FPU) to be a catalyst to lasting improvement in a families’ financial future. Kensington’s leadership team and their spouses went through Financial Peace University when Kensington started partnering with Dave Ramsey’s FPU program. 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 eliminated, lives changed, and marriages saved by applying these simple to understand hard to implement principles. The real blessing is seeing people create lives of margin that allow them to hear and respond to the Lord’s calling on their lives.
God is on the move at Kensington! Take the next step and join a class today.
We are excited that you are considering joining us for this life changing 9-week study on personal finance.
A few housekeeping notes: FPU registration is a two-step process. Step 1 holds your spot in the course and lets the leader know you are coming. Step 2 registers you for the course with Ramsey Solutions and allows you to purchase your FPU materials. (FPU materials cannot be purchased directly from Kensington.)
Materials and Fee: When you purchase FPU materials, you actually purchase Ramsey+ – an all-access membership ($129.99 per year) that includes money tools, apps, content and resources to help you take control of your money. Your membership includes access to Financial Peace University, EveryDollar budget reporting and automatic bank transactions, the BabySteps app, Ask a Coach, the Debt Snowball Calculator, and more.
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 in PDF form. Please email [email protected] for more information. Everyone is welcome!
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 Ramsey+ membership you will have access to all 9 lessons. If you miss a class, simply watch the video during the week and discuss a meaningful highlight with your coordinator when you return to class.
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 reach out to your Campus Discipleship Director to further discuss or email [email protected]
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.
