About the Financial Framework Seminar Series™:

I would like to thank you for taking the time to look at the Financial Framework Seminar Series.  This web site is only a small snap shot of what the FFSS has to offer.  Our mission to rescue God’s people from the bondage of debt began back in December of 1994.  Since that time, we have worked tirelessly to this point and we believe that we have the most powerful educational system to get families out of debt ever developed. 

Our mission is to build debt free churches, one family at a time.

In doing so, we aim to "cure" the number one cause of child abuse, spousal abuse, divorce, and overall stress in the family today; money problems. Because Americans never get a proper financial education, coupled with the strong desire to live on wants and not needs, the American people are sinking into a quagmire of unchecked and out of control consumer debt. Not only is this directly costing us a great deal of money and strife, but it also distracts us from our spiritual lives and financial futures, which as you well know, are extremely important in the long run.

In churches all across our nation, Christians are sitting in the pews attempting to listen to the message being preached but many of them are not able to pay attention to the message due to the consumer debt dilemma that they are currently facing. They sit there worrying about their immediate financial survival, believing they will be in this situation until they die and miss the sermon. This distraction is one of Satan’s favorite tools that he uses to do his dirty deeds.  The more of us that he can keep from focusing on God, the more of us that he will have a chance to destroy.  Our goal is to meet him head on by giving people the financial tools and systems required to take control of their financial lives, allowing them to stay focused on the message being preached. 

We believe that the people who have been called on by God to spread his word have the most important job on earth.  As lofty as this may sound, we know our purpose on this earth is to serve all of God’s children by doing our part to reveal Satan’s tricks.  If we can do our part to educate them about the evils of easy credit and teach them essential financial skills, we can free them from the bondages of debt, which will allow more of your congregation to focus on the message that you work so hard to prepare and to deliver.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to look at the tools that we have developed to assist you in building a debt free congregation.  If you have any questions please contact us.  We are determined and committed to the task of building debt free churches, one family at a time, and we sincerely hope that your church will be one of them.

Respectfully yours,

Steve Barfield
