Center for Financial Literacy
Sound Biblical Principles for Your Financial Planning
Get empowered to make financially wise decisions. The Center for Financial Literacy (CFL) offers biblically based financial training for Liberty University and the community.
Financial literacy enables you to manage your personal finances in a way that is both effective and efficient. Through education and collaboration, the CFL will help you integrate a healthy concept of financial literacy into every facet of your life. While talking about money may be tough, learning how to manage it shouldn’t have to be.
We’re here to help – no matter what your situation is.
Peer Financial Coaching
The Center for Financial Literacy is now offering financial coaching to Liberty faculty, students and staff! This service provides guidance in budgeting, investing, saving, taxes and student debt- all from a biblical perspective.
