GuideStone Insurance Broker Guide




Offer Your Clients Medical Coverage With Value and Values

Discover the unique benefits of offering church plans to your clients.

Gain competitive advantage by offering unique benefits designed specifically for your Christian church, ministry, school, college and university clients. Most brokers are unfamiliar with this unique market which is wide open for growth. Our specialized plans can accommodate groups of all sizes — from two covered employees on up.

GuideStone® was founded in 1918 to meet the financial needs of impoverished retired pastors and their widows. From those humble beginnings, GuideStone has grown to become the premier provider of employee benefits for evangelical churches and ministries. Today GuideStone provides insurance products to more than 130,000 people who serve as the hands and feet of Christ in their churches, ministries and schools throughout the United States and around the world.

Even better is that while enjoying the benefits of multiple providers, your clients will have a single point of contact. When clients work with GuideStone, all they do is make one phone call, provide some basic information and we’ll take it from there. We can calculate rates, facilitate enrollment, provide file feeds, work to solve escalated claims, manage renewals and help in any way needed.
