Frequently Asked Questions

When do you meet with clients?

Our office is open Monday – Friday from 8am to 5pm. If you need to schedule an appointment outside this time please contact us. We are willing to work with you to schedule an appointment.  

Where does the “5:one” come from?

It comes from Galatians 5:1. We believe God wants to set people free from sin and bondage. Money management and finances can be a heavy burden for many people. Galatians 5:1 says “it is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” We want to see people set free from the bondage of finances.

Do you sell any products?

No. We do not sell any products through Freedom 5:one.

How many times does a client meet with you?

It is usually 4 times throughout a year. We plan an initial appointment then review meetings 2 months, 6 months and 1 year later. We hope to equip our clients with tools to manage their money within this time frame. The financial coaches are very willing to schedule more appointments as necessary.

What does a typical initial appointment look like?

The initial appointment usually lasts about 2 hours and we send the client out with a written spending plan. We gather data from the client including goals, income, expenses, insurance and debt to create a unique spending plan. The first meeting takes longer than others due to the amount of information covered.

How is your ministry funded?

We are funded through financial partnerships of individuals, families, churches and businesses. Those who partner with us play a direct role in setting people free and transforming the financial destiny of families in Northwest Arkansas and around the world.

Who is your typical client?

We meet with people from many different financial situations. Freedom 5:one has clients who are high school students, retirees, individuals, married couples, low income, high income and everywhere in between. We have experienced that God brings hope to the clients we serve especially through married couples.
