Journey to Financial Freedom is designed to provide biblical and additional practical help with personal finances. This is during the same timeslot as the Wednesday Night Gathering (6:45 – 8 PM); therefore, kids and youth ministry is available through our normal Wednesday night programming of nursery, Awana, and Student Ministries so long as classroom spots are available.

The course will be an integration of:

  • Portions of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU)
  • Teaching on emotional spending from Know Yourself, Know Your Money 
  • Components of Ron Blue Institute for Financial Planning
  • HBC plus other contributors
