EMPOWERED PERSONAL FINANCE

At the Empowered Living Church, we understand that ministering to the whole person is essential.  Therefore, we offer classes and partner with faith-based organizations to address the personal finance needs of our members and help them become empowered men and women.

BUILD WEALTH

The Legacy Journey is a seven-week, biblically based class that teaches you how to truly live and leave a legacy for generations to come. This class will lead you deeper into investing, basic estate planning, purposeful living, safeguarding your legacy, and discovering the keys to generational wealth and true generosity. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small-group activities, you’ll learn a biblical framework for living intentionally now so that later you’ll be able to leave a legacy that will secure your family’s future and make a lasting impact on the world around you.  The Legacy Journey classes meet for around an hour and a half each week for seven weeks.  ELC offers The Legacy Journey class 2-3 times a year.  For more information, visit: www.DaveRamsey.com/legacy

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR FINANCES

Dave Ramsey and his teaching team will walk you through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more. Local classes are made up of small groups of people who live in your area and are a great way to share ideas, be encouraged, and stay motivated. Classes meet for nine weeks and are led by a volunteer coordinator. One Financial Peace University membership per family is all you need to get started in a class. After purchasing your membership, be sure to follow the directions in your order confirmation email to find a class starting in your area. Contact the class coordinator about specific details, including childcare.  ELC offers FPU classes 3-4 times a year. For more information, visit:  www.DaveRamsey.com/fpu

FINANCIAL LITERACY

Common Wealth Charlotte (CWC) is a new, innovative non-profit started in April 2015 that provides financial empowerment to Charlotte’s low-wage workers through financial education coupled with access to specially designed re-banking and emergency loan products.  Our trauma-informed financial education curriculum results in long lasting change and creates financially educated low-wage workers. Trauma-informed financial education is a new best practice and involves a deep understanding and recognition of the physical, psychological, and emotional trauma experienced by our most fragile working poor.  It responds by empowering clients in a classroom or one-to-one setting to create an environment of safety, trustworthiness, transparency, peer support, mutual respect, consumer choice, and culturally relevant discourse.  For more information, visit: http://www.commonwealthcharlotte.org/
