The Ron Blue Institute developed and began running the first biblically-based, college peer financial coaching program on the campus of Indiana Wesleyan University in the fall of 2016. IWU's peer coaching program was named the NEXUS Financial Discipleship Center and is a student led financial discipleship center focused on teaching the scriptural foundation of money management through consistent accountability and the use of tailored tools and resources to make decisions rooted in biblical wisdom. Our desire is to expand the financial coaching program to Christian Universities throughout the U.S. as well as connect students with schools that are already offering the program.

NEXUS Client Testimonials

Anonymous Student, Spring 2020 – “Through the NEXUS program, I have learned so much about how to budget my finances. First semester, I learned how to better budget and manage the money I was making. I also learned how to ask really good questions regarding financial aid so that I could get better answers and results. Second semester, my peer coach helped me to set small and big goals financially so I could get where I wanted to be and cover all my expenses. NEXUS overall has helped me see that finances are important so that we can be stewards of our money in the Kingdom of God, and that saving money and budgeting can be fun!”

Anonymous Student, Fall 2019 “Before signing up for NEXUS, I used to just guess and hope that I had enough money to cover all my expenses. This caused a lot of unnecessary stress in my life. I am so grateful for the tools I have been given through NEXUS in order to better understand my finances! I learned how to create a budget and stick to it, how to create and evaluate financial goals, as well as that there is so much more to learn! But, what I am most thankful for is the way my coach pointed me back to Jesus every week. I was reminded to trust God and cast all my cares on Him. My peace has grown exponentially this semester. I highly recommend anyone who feels like they are struggling to manage their money to sign up for NEXUS.”
