1. How often do the classes meet?
There are 9 class sessions meeting one day per week for 90 minutes. The class will meet weekly at 121.
2. How long is each class session?
Each session is 90 minutes, and each is independent of the others. Part One, taught by Dave Ramsey on DVD, 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. What is the average size of the class?
The video portion of the class is unlimited. However, during the discussion time, break down into 8-12 families, plus a coordinator, for each small group.
4. If I miss one class, can I make it up?
The coordinator can work with you to make up that lesson by allowing you to take the video lesson home with you, as long as you return it the following class.
