Ministry: If You Are Buried in Debt, You Cannot See the Prize – Bob Marette

Room 202

Too many people are buried with the unimaginable debt of a mortgage, car loan(s), credit cards, and now massive student loans.  They cannot see past themselves and their incredible debt load.  They need a VISION of what it would be like if they had no debt, but they also need a plan to know HOW to accomplish that awesome goal.  This class will provide not only the WHY, but the very specific and practical HOW to get TOTALLY out of debt in about 5-7 years, INCLUDING MORTGAGE and STUDENT LOANS.  Once they have this plan in place and begin the process, even though they are still buried, they can now begin to focus their vision on the prize of DEBT FREEDOM.
