Like-Minded Ministries and Organizations
GuideStone® works with several kingdom-based organizations who provide a variety of Christian-based services and products and who also engage in like-minded ministry. Although we share similar principles and values, GuideStone is not affiliated with and does not receive any commission or compensation from these organizations.

Ron Blue Institute
The Ron Blue Institute seeks to be a thought leader with great influence committed to changing the way Christians think, act and communicate about financial stewardship, empowering the church and changing the world.
The Ron Blue Institute delivers biblically-based financial wisdom to the body of Christ by providing thought leadership and content through church, professional, consumer and academic channels. Their model is to teach principles and processes (how to fish), instead of prescriptions (giving them a fish). The wisdom in the Bible is always right, always relevant and never going to change.
