Mission: Dignity

They call it Dignity. We call it a Mission.

Since 1918, GuideStone Financial Resources has been on a “Mission” to provide “Dignity” to retired Southern Baptist ministers, workers or their widows. These are men and women who have faithfully served God’s people and now find themselves struggling to meet even basic needs. Many served small, rural churches that paid only modest salaries and couldn’t afford to contribute to their pastors’ retirement. Often, these loyal soldiers of the cross had to work extra jobs just to make ends meet.

Mission:Dignity currently helps more than 2,000 people with extra money needed for housing, food and vital medications. It has also ensured a well-deserved dignity, independence and, often, the ability to continue serving.

Provide a Gift of Dignity

You can share in this essential ministry through a variety of ways:

God’s promise to provide for His faithful servants, and our opportunity to act on that promise, are at the heart of the Mission:Dignity ministry. Join us in extending God’s care and compassion to His faithful servants — providing the comfort and dignity they deserve.

Mission:Dignity currently helps almost 2,000 retired SBC ministers, workers or their widows by providing monthly income to qualified recipients and pays out more than $6.5 million annually in assistance. The majority of the funding for this ministry comes from the direct gifts of individuals, groups and churches in our Southern Baptist family to the Mission:Dignity ministry.

All gifts to Mission:Dignity go to help those in need with nothing taken out for administrative expenses and are tax-deductible to the maximum amount allowed by law.
