    Frequently Asked Questions


    1. How often do the classes meet?

    There are 9 class sessions meeting each week.
    2. How long is each class session?

    Approximately 90 minutes to two hours for each session and each is independent of the others.

    Part One, taught by Dave Ramsey on video, teaches you how to make wise financial decisions based on Scripture.

    Part Two of each class session is a small-group discussion. The design of the discussion groups helps you apply the principles to your daily life. Members hold each other accountable, build friendships, and support one another. Since personal finance is 80% behavior, this small-group format ensures that class members realize finance is more than just math.

    3. If I miss one class, can I make it up?

    Lessons may be viewed online (first lesson free, the rest for a nominal charge) and the coordinator will work with you to ensure you get credit for viewing it.
