Town Hall for Hope

Tomorrow night at the Church we are hosting Dave Ramsey and his Town Hall for Hope. Well we are not actually hosting Dave Ramsey but rather a live stream of the event via the internet. Here is a little bit of information from the Town Hall of Hope website:

Town Hall for Hope is your opportunity to sit down with people in your community for a nationwide town hall meeting led by Dave Ramsey. Thousands of venues across the country will host the event, broadcasting Dave’s live presentation. In the opening half hour, Dave will offer straight talk about the economy, recession, foreclosures and more. He’ll carefully explain where we’ve come from, where we are now, and what we should be doing with our money during this time. Then, Dave will spend an hour answering your questions live!

We’ll take questions by phone, email, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and more! Check out our Get Involved page to see all the ways in which you can join in the conversation! And remember, this is a free event!

I feel that as church we need to host events such as this because we are the hope that people need in this economy. As I said in my Easter Sermon only Jesus Christ can being the hope that we need. The government cannot do it for you only Jesus can.

Dave says “The solution to America’s economy is to get people to believe again. It’s time to connect with families to instill hope and optimism in our economy and our country. We the people are the healing agents.”

Who is Dave Ramsey?

Dave Ramsey is a personal money-management expert, an extremely popular national radio personality and best-selling author of The Total Money Makeover. In his latest book, a follow-up of his enormously successful New York Times best-sellers Financial Peace and More Than Enough, Ramsey exemplifies his life’s work of teaching others how to be financially responsible, so they can acquire enough wealth to take care of loved ones, live prosperously into old age, and give generously to others.

Ramsey knows first-hand what financial peace means in his own life-living a true rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-riches story. By age twenty-six he had established a four-million-dollar real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age thirty. He has since rebuilt his financial life and now devotes himself full-time to helping ordinary people understand the forces behind their financial distress and how to set things right-financially, emotionally and spiritually.

Ramsey offers life-changing financial advice as host of a nationally syndicated radio program, The Dave Ramsey Show, which is heard by nearly four million listeners each week on more than 400 radio stations throughout the United States.

Ramsey is the creator of Financial Peace University(FPU), a 13-week program that helps people dump their debt, get control of their money, and learn new behaviors around money that are founded on commitment and accountability. More than 750,000 families have attended FPU classes at their workplace, church, military installation, local nonprofit organization, community group or Spanish-speaking organization. The average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 91 days after beginning FPU and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18-24 months.

Ramsey created a group of products in an effort to teach children about money before they have a chance to make mistakes. Financial Peace an instructional kit designed to help parents teach their young children about working, saving and giving their own money. Through Ramsey’s entertaining children’s book series, The Super Red Racer, Careless at the Carnival, The Big Birthday Surprise, My Fantastic Field trip, A Special Thank You,and Battle of the Chores, children learn about working, saving, giving, budgeting, integrity and debt.

On October 15, 2007, Ramsey added television host to his title when The Dave Ramsey Show on Fox Business Network debuted nationally.

Ramsey earned his B.S. degree in Finance and Real Estate from the University of Tennessee. A frequent speaker around the country at large-scale live events, Ramsey is a passionate and inspiring presenter who is at ease on both sides of the microphone. More than 600,000 people have attended Ramsey’s live events.
