GuideStone's 2nd Annual Employee Benefits Summit Slated for March 26–28



Key ministry decision makers, along with human resources professionals and financial officers of churches and ministries, are invited to register for the second annual Employee Benefits Summit, March 26–28 in Dallas. The popular Southern Baptist Business Officers Conference and GuideStone Benefits Forum were merged last year to create a one-of-a-kind conference for church business leaders. The conference offers an expanded menu of networking and training opportunities.

Registration is $199, but early-bird registration is available for $149 through January 19.

The meeting, featuring industry experts from GuideStone® and the wider employee benefits community, will be held at The Westin Galleria, 13340 Dallas Parkway, Dallas, Texas 75240.

Speakers include Gayla Crain, a noted employment law attorney, Holly Boullion from CapinCrouse, who will cover cybersecurity, and Kimberlee Norris from MinistrySafe to address the topic of sexual abuse in the church. Additional speakers for the 19 sessions will be announced in the coming weeks. A total of 11 qualifying hours will be available for CPE credit.

“The Employee Benefits Summit brings together leading experts to provide the latest news and actionable insight for personnel leaders in churches and ministry organizations,” said GuideStone President O.S. Hawkins. “We hope that any church or ministry leader whose responsibility includes employee benefits would make plans to attend.”
