Georgia Baptist Mission Board Benefits to Ministers and Staff
The Georgia Baptist Mission Board has a long tradition of providing some great benefits to ministers and other church employees of its member churches. Annually, Georgia Baptist Mission Board has provided a wellness retreat, private confidential personal counseling, conflict resolution assistance, resume services, and many other ministries to ministers and church employees. Another ministry the Georgia Baptist Mission Board has provided over the years has been the survivor protection and disability income benefits. Last year alone, our ministry partner GuideStone Financial Resources of the SBC, paid out over $600,000 in benefits to surviving spouses or disabled church staff members. This is a tremendous benefit for church employees.
The protection benefits are based on monthly contributions to a participant’s retirement account at Guidestone. Ministers are eligible for protection benefits from the first day of employment and full-time support staff employees are eligible after three years of Southern Baptist employment. The only requirement the Georgia Baptist Mission Board has of member churches is to contribute at least $420 per retirement plan participant to the Cooperative Program to help recover part of the cost of providing these excellent protection benefits.
