Grace Community Church is hosting a local watch party for a live broadcast of a financial assistance seminar Thursday hosted by nationally-known broadcaster Dave Ramsey.
Ramsey, a national talk-radio host and frequent contributor to news network programs, offers frank advice to individuals and families alike to succeed and survive in difficult financial times and conditions.
The church decided to host the event as a public service to the community, said Steve Hayes, pastor of Grace Community Church.
“A lot of our people have been helped by his principles ... they’ve seen a lot of good results,” Hayes said. He added that Grace Community Church has a member who is certified to teach Ramsey’s principles for financial management, which can help as a “followup” from Thursday’s broadcast event.
Ramsey calls his presentation “Town Hall for Hope,” and will cover topics including the economy, money matters for families and individuals, and provide answers to questions from viewers and participants in the national internet broadcast.
“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,” Ramsey said of his broadcast.
Ramsey will be hosting this meeting live from LifeChurch in Oklahoma City, Okla. and it will be broadcast to over four thousand locations across the country for the public to attend free of charge.
“He’s not a guy who ‘panics’,” said Hayes. “He says despite various levels of crisis people may face in their lives ... over time, they’ll get through it.”
Hayes said Ramsey offers advice to “practice basic principles of wise living” to help people in all walks of life be successful in managing their resources, regardless of the economy.
The event is open to the public and begins at 7 p.m. Thursday. The church is located at 227 North Beaton Street.
