God continues to move powerfully in and through KCC families in the area of personal finance. This fall thanks to our volunteer coordinators we offered FPU at Troy, Orion, Clinton, Birmingham, and Orlando. The life change we had the privilege of witnessing in 9 short weeks is nothing short of a miracle. One couple told our coordinators that FPU has prevented World War III from breaking out in their home. We got to unpack the difference between standard of living and quality of life and what it means to leave a legacy of generosity. We learned how the application of Biblical truths to personal finances creates clarity and a posture of response and availability to the call of God. We saw this happen right before our eyes. Our Vertical Marriage series was a great backdrop to prompt discussion and prayer about living in relationship with Jesus and how that translated to our finances. We really found people thinking vertically. At KCC our campuses are designed to be a Hub, a Home, and a place for Help. This was readily apparent as we watched married couples, singles, newly marrieds, and recently divorced individuals learn Biblical truths in the area of personal finances. One of my favorite parts of the FPU class is graduation night when we talk about living a life on mission for the Kingdom. People powerfully shared, often through tears, how these 9 weeks gave them hope, faith, and love they didn't feel before being apart of FPU. Friendships were formed and lives transformed. We had one KCC family get on Dave Ramsey’s radio show live to scream “We’re Debt Free” and gave a shout out to KCC in the process. I'm grateful to be in this with all of you and so grateful for all our volunteer coordinators that serve to reach the One that is far from God and invite them into this discussion about God's truth. We had a ton of fun, laughed and cried and learned from each other. Enjoy the pictures below including some of the debt statistics and a few class snapshots. On these snap shots we saw a number of participants indicating they were giving and trusting God with their money for the very first time. Powerful stuff.
Winter classes are starting in early January, for class schedules click here. Please help us spread the word and invite your friends, family, and neighbors to join us this January for 9 weeks that could change their life.
