Who We Are
What's in a name? Throughout history, names have been given to people and places with much thought, purpose and expectation. So why "GuideStone"?
"Guide" refers to expert, trustworthy leadership. "Stone" refers to longevity, stability and a solid foundation. Historically, the use of guide stones was common when our ancestors were guided by stones placed as road markers to aid in their travels. Explorers, leaders, road builders and others who had gone that way before set up these guide stones to 1) point direction, 2) gauge distance and 3) warn of danger.
Today, GuideStone continues to join brothers and sisters in Christ on the path to enhancing their financial security. Each step echoes the meaning in our name as we strive to:
- Provide expert direction regarding financial, life and health decisions.
- Gauge the distance to participants' retirement goals.
- Warn of danger concerning inadequate preparation toward financial security.
At GuideStone, we understand the meaning behind our name and take seriously our responsibility to help you journey safely through your ministry. We are honored to serve you as you serve the Lord.
We encourage you to get to know the leaders of our organization who exemplify GuideStone's commitment to honor the Lord by being a lifelong partner with our participants in enhancing their financial security.
