Money Management Course Simple Steps


Free Money Management Course Offers Simple Steps to Financial Freedom
Life South set to run CAP Money in March 2013

With holiday spending slowing down, Life South Church in Mangere is offering its free CAP Money Course to help local residents gain more financial freedom in the coming year.

This three-night course, developed by international debt counseling charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP), offers a smart, simple way for people to build, balance, and stick to their budgets.

Doug White, the Senior CAP Money coach who facilitates the sessions, shares that CAP Money is ideal for anyone who wants to discover how to do more with the money coming in, regardless if there’s excess cash flow or a lack each month.

“The CAP Money course is so useful because it gives people control of their money, whatever their goals may be. During the sessions, they decide how much they want to spend and how much they want to save. And then, we show them the best way to reach these goals,” explains Doug.

Over the 4 years Doug has been running the course, CAP attendees have seen significant results, including being able to pay down mortgages more quickly, take holidays and begin saving more per week.

Doug will lead the free, three-night course on consecutive Monday evenings: 11 March; 18 March and 25 March at Life South in Mangere.

“We’re thrilled to once again offer CAP Money and help people better manage their finances,” Doug shares. “Bring yourself and invite your friends and family—everyone will benefit!”

About Christians Against Poverty

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a national debt counseling charity working through a network of centre’s based in local churches throughout the UK, Australia, New Zealand and, most recently, Canada. Together with these churches, CAP aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counseling, advice and practical tools, like CAP Money.

The charity began in 1996 when John Kirkby, armed with a 10 donation, began to help people in his local community who were trapped in debt. The charity came to New Zealand in 2007 and, in just five years, has reached thousands of people through CAP Money Courses and helped 113 families become totally debt free through CAP Church Centre’s.

CAP’s vision is to provide a home and solution to anyone in debt in New Zealand by having at least one CAP centre operating in every major suburb, town and city over the next 5 years.
