Sunday nights will be a two-hour class. You will watch the teaching videos and have discussion in class. Those who have taken FPU in the past will not need to purchase any additional materials unless you wish to have online access during the course.

Why you should participate?

The average family has an $8,000 financial turnaround in just the first 90 days!

Reason one | Freedom Is a Biblical Principle

Dealing with our finances is also a Biblical calling. As a Christian, we want to be available for whatever God calls us to do. When you are covered in debt, then you are in bondage and not free to give, go, and serve. Debt keeps you from making decisions when God calls. FPU is all about Financial Peace. Freedom. It gives you the ability to dream again and a path to make those God dreams come true.

Reason two | Because Debt Is Bad

Think about it…NO debt is always good! Therefore, we should always strive to be debt free. FPU gives you the tools to become debt free. It even puts you on a path to financial freedom. Can you imagine a world where you have no debt payments and no mortgage payments?  How could we impact the world for Christ?

Reason three | Because We Are Called to Be Generous

People want to be generous. They want to be generous, but don’t feel like they can be generous. They have little or no margin in their finances to give to the church, support a favorite charity, help others with a mission trip, or simply give money to help meet needs that they encounter on a regular basis. FPU puts you on a path where you can be as generous as you want to be.

Still have questions?

What do I get with FPU?

When you purchase a Financial Peace University (FPU) membership, you receive all the class materials and access to the FPU online resources you need to succeed. Your membership means that you can attend the FPU class as often as you like. However, those attending a FPU Flex class on Wednesday nights need to purchase additional online access to the teaching videos. Spouses and engaged couples can attend together with a single membership, and teens living at home are welcome to attend with their parents.

How are classes structured?

We will be offering two different FPU classes this fall. They are slightly different in format so please choose the one that is the best fit for you!

FPU Traditional Class (coordinated by Ken and Amy Cleaver): This class meets over a nine week period.  Each class is two hours in length.  We will watch the hour-long video lesson during class and then have discussion time. This format is good for those who would rather watch the lesson during class.  There is no childcare during this class.

FPU Flex Class (coordinated by Brandon and Kelly Osterbind): This class meets over a 10 week period.  Each week’s class is only an hour in length. You can watch the video lesson on your own time and at your own convenience prior to each Wednesday night class.  This format allows for more discussion time on the principles. Childcare is available in the nursery and in AWANA classes. Note: If you have previously purchased an FPU membership, you will need to purchase additional online access to be able to watch the online lessons.

What happens if I miss one class? Can I make it up?

As part of your membership to FPU, you’ll have access to watch the lessons in FPU Central. If you miss a class, you can review that week’s lesson and share what stuck out to you with your coordinator when you return the following week. Videos of each lesson are available in FPU Central for 16 weeks.

Will I be asked to provide any personal financial information?

A couple of times throughout the nine lessons, you will collect financial data to get a cumulative financial view of the class. This data is strictly confidential and will not be tied to any personally identifiable information.

Can I get additional assistance?

Your FPU membership covers the nine-week class, the ability to attend future FPU classes and access to FPU Central. For more personalized coaching, TRBC offers person financial coaching by some of our FPU coordinators and Ramsey Solutions trained financial coaches. If you need financial coaching, email us at or call the Thomas Road Adult Ministries office at 434-592-6632. If you haven’t been through FPU yet, that is a great place to start your journey.
