Fund data as of 09/30/2021 unless otherwise specified.
The Fund seeks the highest total return over time consistent with the asset mix. Total return includes capital appreciation and income.
The Fund pursues its objective by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of GuideStone Funds Select Funds that represent various asset classes. The Fund is managed to the specific retirement year included its name and assumes a retirement age of 65. Over time, the allocation to asset classes will change according to a predetermined "glide path" that adjusts the percentage of fixed income securities and the percentage of equity securities to become more conservative each year until approximately 15 years after the target date.
The Fund is designed for an investor who anticipates retiring at or near the target date and who plans to withdraw the value of the account in the Fund gradually after retirement. Over time, the allocation to asset classes will change according to a predetermined "glide path," which adjusts the percentage of fixed income securities and equity securities to become more conservative each year until approximately 15 years after the target date.
The Fund's value will fluctuate due to changes in interest rates. There is a risk that the issuer of a fixed income investment may fail to pay interest or even principal due in a timely manner or at all. The Fund's value will fluctuate due to business developments concerning a particular issuer, industry or country, as well as general market and economic conditions. Securities of foreign issuers may be negatively impacted by political events, economic conditions or inefficient, illiquid or unregulated markets in foreign countries, and they also may be subject to inadequate regulatory or accounting standards, which may increase investment risk. By investing in this Fund, you will incur the expenses of the Fund, in addition to those of the underlying Select Funds. You may directly invest in the Select Funds. The Fund's value will go up and down in response to changes in the share prices of the investments that it owns. The amount invested in the Fund is not guaranteed to increase, is not guaranteed against loss, nor is the amount of the original investment guaranteed at the target date. This description of risks is provided as a summary of the principal investment risks associated with this mutual fund. Refer to the Fund's prospectus for more detailed risk information.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or “star rating,” is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds and separate accounts) with at least a 3-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% 3-year rating for 36–59 months of total returns, 60% 5-year rating/40% 3-year rating for 60–119 months of total returns and 50% 10-year rating/30% 5-year rating/20% 3-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent 3-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Ratings are for the share class shown only; other classes may vary. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
