Our friends at GuideStone Financial Resources are making this resource available to the XPastor community. They are committed sponsors of the XP-Seminar each year and have given us great help in our retirement planning. Enjoy this free resource.

GuideStone has the distinct privilege to come alongside organizations like yours every day, helping them to enhance the financial security of their employees. One of the ways we’re able to achieve this is through the provision of relevant resources like our annual Ministers Tax Guide. Click here to download it: GuideStone Minister’s Tax Guide for 2013.

This popular guide focuses on tax issues most likely to affect ministers and churches. It includes sample tax returns for both active and retired ministers. Church treasurers and other leaders will find a valuable resource in the special section about important federal requirements for churches. Get yours online today, or if you prefer, you can request one by phone (1-888-98-GUIDE) or email ([email protected]).

Since 1918, GuideStone has been helping participants reach their goals through a broad range of services. These include retirement plans, insurance benefits and investment management services, to name a few. Today, GuideStone serves more than 200,000 participants worldwide and more than 36,000 churches, mission-sending agencies, hospitals, educational institutions and other related ministries.

I strongly believe you will find our products and services to be highly competitive, and enjoy the added benefit of knowing that GuideStone shares your cherished values in all that we do and provide. In addition to only offering Christian-based, socially screened funds, we also come alongside your organization with specialized knowledge of ministerial tax and retirement issues that other providers can often overlook.

I sincerely welcome the opportunity to get to know you and discuss how GuideStone could possibly serve your organization. If you have questions, please contact me, Dixie Beard, at [email protected].

I appreciate your valuable time, and I look forward to serving you in any way possible.
