The purpose of the Stewardship Ministry is to illuminate the path to financial freedom and minister the support that every person needs in challenging times. We are able to teach and train individuals using solid practical advice and the biblical financial principles established by God in His Word. We want to honor God by teaching others to become more obedient in all areas of stewardship so that they can plan for a secure future, get out or stay out of debt and, most importantly, have a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. It is our vision that every person is faithfully living by God's financial principles in every area of their lives.
FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY
Mission Statement: To empower and give hope to everyone from the financially distressed to the financially secure.
FPU teaches financial stewardship – how to manage 100% of what God has given. Dave Ramsey does all the teaching in 13 video lessons. Dave is a personal money management expert, an extremely popular national radio personality and best-selling author of The Total Money Makeover.

The class consists of an exciting lecture by Dave and discussion questions relating to what has been heard during the video presentation.
