After a year of strategically taking its message around the country with a hands-on approach to empowering African-American families and communities, the global Financial Freedom Movement dfree® is bringing its national conference back to New Jersey this fall with a four-day event that will fortify the dfree® priorities of healthy living through sound and savvy financial management.
Hosted by Reverend DeForest B. Soaries, Jr., senior pastor, First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens and dfree® founder, thedfree® Homecoming Conference will take place in Somerset, New Jersey, October 25 – 28th. Pastors, community leaders, educators and a cross-section of attendees with a desire to improve their financial lives will achieve heightened levels of personal, spiritual and financial wellness through the effective tools, strategies and concepts of the dfree® program.
“People around the world are benefiting from the dfree® belief that if we manage our lives well, then we will use money strategically to reach our life goals,” says dfree® Founder DeForest B. Soaries, Jr. “dfree® is a process and it begins by the way we think about ourselves, the way we think about our money, and the way we think about and plan for our future. The dfree®Homecoming Conference will allow dfree® participants past, present and future to learn and grow together.”
