Online retirement planning now available from GuideStone

DALLAS (BP)–New and seasoned investors with GuideStone Financial Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention (formerly the Annuity Board) can now utilize the Web to view online presentations or participate in interactive online seminars for retirement planning.

The online and interactive presentations cover such key topics for ministers and church employees as: “Enrollment in the Church Retirement Plan,” “Advantages of Consolidating Your Investments” and “How to Know If You Are Invested Appropriately for Retirement.”

Using these new tools, investors can view the presentations or participate in an interactive seminar in the comfort of their home or office. All that is needed is access to the Internet, a computer with speakers to hear the presentation and Macromedia Flash Player software that is available as a free download from the online presentation menu.

“We are excited about these new learning tools and believe they will be a popular resource with Southern Baptist ministers and church employees,” said Bob Henry, head of GuideStone’s church retirement marketing department. “Not everyone has the time to attend state or associational meetings, but now they can view a presentation at their convenience.”

For more information on the new service, visit the website at www.guidestone.org or call toll-free 1-800-262-0511.

SBC messengers recently approved changing the Annuity Board’s name to GuideStone Financial Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention and authorized use of the new name pending the second vote in June 2005.
