Statement by Dr. O.S. Hawkins on passing of former Annuity Board President Dr. Darold H. Morgan



Former Annuity Board, now GuideStone Financial Resources, President Dr. Darold H. Morgan passed away December 11. He was 95.

Morgan served as president of the Annuity Board from March 1, 1972, until his retirement March 1, 1990, when he was succeeded by Paul W. Powell, who died in December 2016.

“Darold Morgan was a trusted adviser and friend, and I loved him like a father,” said GuideStone President O.S. Hawkins. “Darold oversaw many activities that continue to benefit GuideStone and our participants to this day: The relocation of our offices to our former building that served as our home for three decades and the creation of the Church Alliance, a broad coalition of large and historic denominational pension boards who can advocate together, across political and theological boundaries, for the benefit of more than one million pastors and church workers are just two such examples.

“Our prayers are with his family during these days celebrating his life and rejoicing in his having seen the face of His Lord in Glory.”
