Dave Ramsey's "Town Hall for Hope" to visit Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - It's no surprise people are struggling in this economy, but one public figure is spreading hope nationwide. For years Dave Ramsey has taught financial management and now he's making a virtual appearance in Columbus.

In one of his appearances Dave Ramsey said, "Tell your money what to do."

Dave Ramsey is known for teaching financial stability with a Christian basis, and now he's taking that message across the country.

Hanna Webster with Saint Mark United Methodist Church says Ramsey e-mailed all "Financial Peace University" teachers and initiated a Town Hall forum. She told News Leader Nine, "I e-mailed back that we would be interested and apparently a lot of others e-mailed the same thing. So they went ahead with the planning of the Town Hall for Hope."

Ramsey is hosting a live simulcast going out to more than 6,000 locations across the U.S.

"We're inviting everyone in the community. Its not just a church thing or a religious event. It's open and free to everyone. We have 600 seats available and I hope we have 600 folks show up," said Webster.

The first portion of the program will share Dave's ideas and in the last hour he will answer questions from audience members.

"The stuff we teach works. It's God's way of handling money and Grandma's common sense," Ramsey said in a previous interview.

Webster added, "I hope people see the light at the end of the tunnel. That's it's up to them to make the future brighter. It's nothing we can wait around for. We have to do it ourselves."

The "Town Hall for Hope" simulcast is taking place at 8:00 PM at six different locations in Columbus:

Calvary Baptist Church

Schomburg Road Baptist Church

Saint Mark United Methodist Church

Pierce Chapel UMC

St. Luke United Methodist

Golden Acres Baptist Church in Phenix City, Alabama
