How to Become a Financial Peace University Coordinator. Financial Peace University, Dave Ramsey's dynamic personal finance and budgeting class incorporating Scriptural references and Biblical principles, has helped thousands of people achieve financial freedom. It is held at churches and organizations across the nation, facilitated primarily by volunteers. Here's how to become a Financial Peace University Coordinator for a church or religious organization.
Go to Dave Ramsey's website and find the section on Financial Peace University. Request an information packet on how to become a Financial Peace University Coordinator. Return any phone calls from Dave Ramsey staff promptly. After they confirm your request, they will mail your information package.
Read the Financial Peace University Information Guide when it arrives. Review the CD material and watch the preview video DVD. Familiarize yourself with the structure and basic content of Financial Peace University through the introductory materials.
Meet with your pastor or parish priest to discuss hosting Financial Peace University through your church. Discuss your target group-whether it is the whole congregation, newlyweds, or families. Explain the benefits of Financial Peace University. Allow them to view the Preview Video or Pastor Video to give them a glimpse of the program's scope and what will be involved when you become a Financial Peace University coordinator.
Set two preview dates. After receiving approval from the pastor, plan to hold two preview sessions where those interested can view the 20 minute video. Schedule them at convenient times for the church families.
Sign the Financial Peace University license agreement and return it to your adviser. Enter class information online at Dave Ramsey's FPU website. Stay in touch with your adviser and mention your questions or concerns to him or her.
Promote the Financial Peace University class by holing the preview viewing and advertising it through the church and local community. Include the class in local calendar of events listings. Review the Promotional Guide in the material you received from Dave Ramsey for more information.
Enroll families and individuals and order the materials online at Dave Ramsey's website. There is a fee for each membership kit (one per family unit) ordered and for the leadership kit, which is needed to become a Financial Peace University Coordinator.
Start the classes. Choose the dates in advance, leaving about 2 weeks for the materials to arrive. Schedule the class for the same day and time each week for 13 weeks. Host each class session, providing snacks and drinks through the church. Arrive early to set up each class session. Facilitate the class as described in your Financial Peace University Coordinator material.
