You know how most Christians want to be more generous but are stuck living paycheck to paycheck?
A 21st-century Christian Financial Class for your church or small group
“4 months later, people are still telling of the new levels of freedom they found.”
Lifegate Church has tried several Christian financial curriculums over the last five years. They found that they all focused on the spiritual side with no real-world application or just on the nuts and bolts without integrating Biblical truths.
In October 2023, they invited their church to join, and they ended up getting over 110 attendees to the program. Over the months that followed, the attendees made significant financial progress in their own lives, and Lifegate saw generosity increase across the board from everyone who attended.
They told us, “What I love the most about what you guys do is it’s incredibly practical and deeply spiritual at the same time… This was incredible that it did both and in such a clear and easy way.”
When you bring True Financial Freedom to your church… giving goes up 🚀
“After the giving session, my wife and I decided to double our giving from 10% to 20%
–Uriah F. (TFF student)
See what True Financial Freedom is all about:
We don’t teach textbook ‘theory’ that worked two decades ago.
Instead, we obsessively study what is actually working today while filtering it all through a Biblical lens.
We then test it ourselves, and then we share our firsthand experience of what works with our students.
So this is less “textbook” theory and more learning directly from a mentor who has been there and worked through it.
The True Financial Freedom Philosophy
We help them live totally free for the advancement of the kingdom
The True Financial Freedom class is a whole new way of looking at money. Less about constantly saying NO with your money and more about discovering the freedom to say YES. Less penny-pinching and more thriving in your God-given gifts and talents.
They’ll spend less time thinking about money and get far better results.
Here’s the thing. You don’t have to be a financial expert, spend 10 hours a week budgeting, or read 100 money books to succeed financially. We focus on teaching our set-it-and-forget-it methods of managing money because we always prioritize simplicity. This leaves you with a simple money system that will help you spend less time managing money than you currently are.
We can’t serve God and money, but we can serve God with money
As Christians, we have a different set of money rules. Yet most of us are unknowingly playing by the world’s rules and wondering why it isn’t working out. We help you tap into the unfair advantage we (as Christians) have with our financial lives.
We help you quickly and easily get your money sorted out because you need to get on with your life and the work God has called you to without money getting in the way.
Money is simply a tool God provides to help us do the task He’s given us
True financial freedom is less about yachts and private islands and more about being free to fulfill your God-given purpose. Money is simply a tool God provides to help us do the task He has given us. Sure, when you can afford it, get your private island and send us an invite 😉 but the key is always in seeking Him first, never the stuff.
“… after attending your True Financial Freedom class, we increased our annual giving percentage by 14%“
–Tyson and Meesah K. (TFF Students)
And leading a class is as simple as pressing “play”
Our curriculum is designed so all you need is someone to press “play” on the videos.
Each session is 90 minutes in length and has a few points for group discussion or individual reflection. So as long as you can press play and maybe pass out a worksheet and snack, you are good to lead it. We take care of the rest.
Bring True Financial Freedom to your church or group today!
The True Financial Freedom class/workshop is divided into 6 on-demand video sessions designed to last about 90 minutes each. Each session is full of specific and practical action steps, real-life stories, life-changing revelations, and, dare we even say, fun. And each is designed to inspire and give hope in this area of finances where there is so much guilt and shame present.
“Bob’s giving away all of the tips, tricks, and tactics he employed to personally overcome $400,000 in debt and hit his own generosity stretch goal of giving away a million dollars. His story is amazing, but it doesn’t have to be unique! (It’s) full of big steps made in faith, and it’s also full of practical, actionable advice to help you reach your own financial goals.”
–Mark Batterson, Pastor & NY Times bestselling author
1. On-demand for churches & small groups
If you are looking for an on-demand financial class/curriculum for your church, then this is the best option. Anyone can be a facilitator because, basically, all that is required is to press play and pause to allow for a few moments of discussion.
2. LIVE for larger groups (100+)
Occasionally, and as the schedule allows, we will present the class to a large group over Zoom. This is great for those groups who want more of a personalized interaction with us and want to be able to ask us questions directly as well as on-going email consulting with us.
3. Individual & couples
You (and your spouse) can go through the class with our on-demand class. Many couples like to fast Netflix/Hulu for a week and just watch a session of TFF each evening (with a big bowl of ice cream) 😉 But we aren’t picky. You can choose whatever snacks you like and whatever pace works best.
What students are saying…
About Bob Lotich, CEPF®
Bob Lotich found himself at his breaking point in his early 20’s overwhelmed by debt and stranded 1,000 miles from home with only $7 to his name. After crying out to God for wisdom and discovering a simpler (and far more effective) approach to money, he reached a level of financial freedom he never dreamed possible: having a paid-off house by age 31 and even reaching a personal goal of giving $1 million by age 40. For the last 14 years, he’s shared his best lessons with over 50 million readers and listeners on his award-winning blog, SeedTime.com, and SeedTime Money Podcast.
About Linda Lotich
Linda has spent a lifetime perfecting the art of avoiding boring conversations. Though her financial life was a mess (carrying guilt for making bad decisions and so much shame she didn’t even know how to ask for help), she just prayed it would all work out. And one day, she met the man of her dreams (named Bob), and he had no problem taking her mess and creating all the pie charts and spreadsheets.
But as time went on, she began realizing how investing a little time in something she typically found boring could actually open up the adventure of a lifetime with God!
Pair that with a snack or two, and Bob’s simple approach to a typically complicated subject, and all-about-fun-Linda became the girl who is ready to talk finances…in a fun way, obviously.
Got questions? We have answers!
When you enroll in the True Financial Freedom class for your church, organization, or small group, you will get digital access to all six video sessions and printable PDF worksheets, discussion questions, and other resources for each session. Additionally, we have physical workbooks as an optional add-on.
Will there be homework?
Yes, each week, there will be a little bit of (very simple) homework for each student to complete to put action to what they learned.
How is this different from Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University?
We want to start by honoring Dave Ramsey and the Ramsey team for all the great work they have done and all the lives they have impacted. They have greatly impacted our lives, and we owe a debt of gratitude to them (pun intended).
While both True Financial Freedom and Financial Peace University are finance classes for churches and have some similarities, there are some key differences that our students and facilitators have said set TFF apart:
1. A strong Biblical focus + insanely practical tips
Generally, students say TFF is more Biblically focused. At the same time, it leaves the student with more specific practical action steps. It is less theory and more practical application. One pastor described TFF like this:
“What I love the most about what you guys do is it’s incredibly practical and deeply spiritual at the same time… It was incredible that it did both and in such a clear and easy way.”
2. A more holistic view of finances (not just debt)
Dave Ramsey is the guy to go to if you want the tough love, kick in the rear to get your debt paid off. And we have pointed people over to them countless times over the last decade for that.
But we have discovered that there is more to our financial lives than just paying off debt. Yes, we believe it is an important aspect of stewardship, but we view it as more of a by-product of getting simple money systems in place. And while we put it high on the priority list, it isn’t at the top of our priority list.
3. It’s a grace-filled financial literacy curriculum that leaves students with hope
Some other Christian financial classes can leave students feeling guilt or shame for their money management decisions. Our students consistently comment that the class is inspirational, hopeful, and that it feels like “a conversation with friends”.
How is True Financial Freedom different from your other courses?
This is completely different than our other courses (Real Money Method, 10x Investing, Pay Off 10k). TFF is more of a Biblically based all-in-one financial class, whereas our other courses are narrow and topically focused.
