Financial Peace University
--An Opportunity for Mission--
Crossroads Connection and Followers of Christ, ecumenical prison ministries of the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) and Nebraska Synod ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America), have taught the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University classes to inmates at the Omaha Correctional Center since July of 2012. This class is designed to teach offenders the basics of budgeting and money management and empowers them to live self sufficiently when they re-enter society.
The students enjoy the classes and especially liked learning about the 7 "Baby Steps" for financial success. One student exclaimed, "This class has truly opened my eyes to the things I need to know to be successful financially in life--Thank you very much."
This course will be expanding to the Community Corrections Centers in both Omaha (CCC-O) and Lincoln (CCC-L) in February 2014. The course will also be offered to Crossroads Project LIFE participants in February 2014.
