The financial coaching offered by Freedom 5:one has been so good for me as Jordan SmithI prepare to transition out of my job at Fellowship Bible Church and move overseas to do ministry in the Czech Republic. They have helped me think through financial alternatives that I never thought of before, and helped explain financial options to me in simple ways so I could understand which options would be best for me (retirement, health insurance, etc).

I have a good plan to stick by as I continue to prepare for my move and I feel more stable in my financial situation. I also have great confidence knowing I have a financial plan and that I am prepared when I land overseas. Chris's knowledge of finances and ministry has been a big help in this process. Also, knowing I have the freedom to ask financial questions with someone I trust is a very comforting feeling.

While I tend to be more of a spontaneous personality and it is against my Hartnessnature to "stick to a plan", I am finding that there is a lot of freedom in setting financial goals and learning to live according to a plan.  When I met with Chris and the team at Freedom 5:one, I felt like my finances were a mess! I had never really learned how to set up or live by a budget {spending plan} and had no clear financial goals or saving plan for the future. I tended to avoid financial decisions because, honestly, they were just intimidating to me.

"I am finding that there is a lot of freedom in setting financial goals and learning to live according to a plan."

Chris and his team helped me make sense of it all! They looked at the big picture of my finances and helped me define several long-term and immediate financial goals and took time to explain my various financial policies and investments in terms that were understandable to me. From there, they worked with me to create a very manageable budget to help achieve these goals. I really appreciated the emphasis that they placed on discovering what the Bible has to say about finances and learning to invest my money in a way that will have eternal impact. For the first time ever, I feel equipped to confidently make financial decisions for the future and look forward to being able to give in a way that will bless others.

Throughout the process, Chris and his team were patient, encouraging and cheering me along as I began to reach several short-term goals. I am so grateful to the team at Freedom 5:one and would highly recommend them to anyone desiring financial direction for the future!

As a young engaged couple Ashli and I kept hearing that the two biggest things thatZach and Ashli cause conflict in marriage are communication and money. With that knowledge we decided to ask around and within a weeks’ time 2 or 3 different people told us about Freedom 5:one Ministries. We decided that it would definitely be worth at least looking into so we called and scheduled an appointment.  

I can say that meeting with a godly financial coach was the best thing we could have done for our first year of marriage. The reason I say that is without meeting with Chris we would have Googled how to make a budget, thrown something together, and followed it vaguely. This would have most likely led to the conflict that so many warned us about. Meeting with him gave us unbiased wise advice with how to budget our money as well as pray for our finances. 

This process allowed Ashli and I to square away a reasonable budget with someone there to agree or disagree with us, and avoid conflict. After our first and second meeting, we had a structured and organized way to go about our finances which has given us an amazing foundation to start with as a married couple. 

Freedom 5:one is making a huge impact in our lives and especially our marriage.  It really did take all the stress and possibility for financial conflict out of the question. The communication part we’re still working on! We can’t thank them enough for their ministry.

Freedom 5:one Ministries has been such a blessing in my life. For the first time I received financial advice on how to utilize and manage my finances in an encouraging and supportive way, and with the quarterly follow-up appointments developed a plan that was built specifically to fit my needs. I would encourage anyone to meet with the team at Freedom 5:one.
