Who We Are
The story of GuideStone Funds actually begins in 1918 when our parent organization, GuideStone Financial Resources, was founded to offer financial assistance to retired ministers and widows in need.
As the years went by, we focused on helping ministers proactively prepare for retirement, which resulted in GuideStone registering our first mutual funds in 2001.
Then, in 2012, GuideStone became the first and only Christian-screened fund family to win Lipper's Best Overall Small Fund Group in the U.S. Shortly afterward, many like-minded investors sought to add our award-winning, values-driven mutual funds to their portfolios; however, our funds were not open to the public at that time.
So, in 2014, we expanded access to GuideStone Funds — the nation's largest Christian-screened mutual fund family — allowing more individuals, institutions and financial advisors, like you, to invest in funds that align with your Christian values.
Meet the team behind our award-winning, values-driven mutual funds.

About the 2012 Best Overall Small Company Award: Fund groups with at least three equity, three bond and three mixed-asset classes are eligible for a group award. The lowest average decile rank of the three years' Consistent Return measure of the eligible funds per asset class and group will determine the award winner over the three-year period ended 11/30/2011. In cases of identical results, the lower average percentile rank will determine the winner. 182 firms were eligible for this award.
As of September 30, 2017, GuideStone Funds has $12.0 billion in assets, which makes GuideStone Funds the nation’s largest Christian-screened mutual fund family. No other fund family with a Christian screen exceeds GuideStone Funds in asset size.
