How to Make A Monster Listen

Money can be a monster – wreaking havoc and stress – when we don’t take control of it. The good news is that we CAN take control of our money. We CAN manage it in a purposeful, God-honoring way.

And what if we did?

  • Marriages would be saved.
  • Families would be blessed.
  • People would begin to live truly abundant, peaceful, joyful lives. The life God envisioned for us. Wants for us.

Money stress is a leading reason that lives, marriages and families self-destruct. And if you think it’s just you, you’re wrong. It’s most of us.

But TOGETHER, we can make this monster listen! We can find freedom. Find our way back to the life God wants for all of us.

Frequently Asked Questions:


Why are we doing this?

We know God expects us to be good stewards of all He has given us. Before we can be good stewards, we need to understand stewardship from a biblical perspective.


How will this work?

We are asking our current Life Group leaders to lead their group through Financial Peace University and other leaders to start new groups. Large-group classes (with childcare) will also be hosted at each campus location.

Why should I participate?

FPU takes people on a journey of financial discipleship. Using the principles of biblical stewardship, this journey leads people to a revolutionary change in how they think and use the financial blessings God has provided. This biblically-based, commonsense education and empowerment gives hope and freedom.

Why are we pausing programs?

We are pausing all ministry offerings except services, student ministry, children’s ministry and care ministries because we want to allow our church family to focus in on this key area of stewardship and discipleship and not be distracted.  After nine weeks those programs will resume.


When will this happen?

Registration for FPU groups is already open.

The 9-week course will begin the week of Sunday, Jan. 14. Groups meet every day of the week.


Where will groups meet?

Some groups will meet in homes and some will meet at our campuses.


Will there be childcare available?

There will be childcare available at select FPU groups.


What will be different after the groups finish FPU?

We know financial stress is a leading reason that lives, marriages and families self-destruct. But together we can make this monster listen. We can find freedom and find our way back to the life God wants for all of us. Marriages will be saved. Families will be blessed. And people will begin to live truly abundant, peaceful, joyful lives!


Why is there a cost?

The only cost is for the Financial Peace University kit, which contains the following essential class materials:

  • A workbook that follows along with each video lesson, highlighting valuable information and providing space for you to record key takeaways
  • “Dave Ramsey’s Complete Guide to Money,” a best-selling book, provides you with practical answers to the “How?” “What?” and “Why?” questions about money
  • The envelope system: Dave’s easy-to-use cash management system

Compassion Christian is buying these materials from Ramsey Solutions in bulk. As a result, the kits will be available to purchase at a discounted rate.


Do you offer scholarships?

You can request a scholarship during the group registration process. All scholarship applications will be handled on a case by case basis. Our team will be in touch shortly after we receive your request.

How do I give someone a scholarship?

You can give to our Financial Peace University scholarship fund here or during the registration process.
