Financial Peace University classes starting soon in Brownstown



In nearly 30 years, about 6 million people have gone through Financial Peace University’s nine lessons and learned the proven plan to pay off debt, save for emergencies and build wealth.

Brownstown residents will have an opportunity to take the course thanks to Tim Robinson stepping up as a volunteer coordinator.

A meet-and-greet session for those interested is set for 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 22 at the Brownstown Senior Citizens Center, 124 S. Main St.

The course will be limited to the first eight couples (16 individuals), and the first class is from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 29 at the same location. Then the meetings will continue at the same time Tuesday nights through Dec. 1 (no class Nov. 10). 

"I reached out to some of the public through Facebook and social media, and I’ve got some interest," Robinson said during Tuesday night’s Brownstown Town Council meeting.

Robinson is a member of the council, and he received approval to conduct the classes at the senior center, which is housed in a building owned by the town. Seniors, however, haven’t met there since March because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the center will remain closed until state officials lift restrictions.

Robinson had considered conducting the classes at the Ewing Depot, which the town also owns and is not currently being used, but he said the cost of utilities would be higher than he wants to pay.

As the coordinator of the classes locally, Robinson would not receive any money because the accountability partners pay $129.99 to Ramsey Solutions to cover materials for the nine-week course.

"It’s basically for the people that are not ready to go ahead and do Charles Schwab or any of that type of investment," Robinson said. "It’s just a real basic budgeting, basically Personal Finance 101 type stuff."

If the class is a success, Robinson said he would offer it again in the future.

He has been certified to do financial coaching and wants to run his own financial coaching business, but he said he’s not to that point yet.
