Retirement plan for MB churches offered through GuideStone Financial Resources
MB Foundation press release
MB Foundation is now providing a specialized retirement plan option to churches within the Mennonite Brethren family. MB Foundation is the stewardship ministry for U.S. Mennonite Brethren.
MB Foundation has been wanting to offer a retirement program to MB pastors for many years now. With strong encouragement and support from USMB, the necessary steps were finally taken to put a program in place.
MB Foundation will be partnering with GuideStone Financial Resources to provide the plan. GuideStone is committed to serving those who serve the Lord as they journey to and through retirement. With nearly 100 years of experience, they are the leader in church retirement plans and are uniquely qualified to provide MB churches with a competitive, personalized retirement plan.
With this plan, MB employees of participating churches have the opportunity to invest in a diversified offering of award-winning funds that also align with their values.
A GuideStone retirement plan offers unique benefits, including:
- access to the nation’s largest Christian-screened mutual fund family,
- ministerial tax benefits and
- personalized investment advice through GuideStone advisors.
It’s important to know that all employees receiving taxable income from a participating Mennonite Brethren church are eligible for the retirement plan. Contributing is simple, and there are no costs to the local church/ministry for participation and no required minimum contributions.
MB Foundation and GuideStone consider it a privilege to serve USMB congregations and encourage us to make the most of this retirement planning opportunity.
