Reflecting on the number of days GuideStone Financial Resources has served hundreds of thousands of participants, O.S. Hawkins noted that Aug. 20, 2018 — the first day at GuideStone’s new home — was a momentous one, following the 100th anniversary of its beginnings in Dallas on July 31, 1918.

“In Psalm 90:12, the prayer of Moses says, ‘So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom,'” Hawkins, GuideStone’s president, noted. “We’re good at counting months or years. In the financial industry, we number quarters. But a heart of wisdom counts the days.”

GuideStone occupies the top five floors of the 24-story Pinnacle Tower at 5005 LBJ Freeway across the Dallas North Tollway from the Dallas Galleria shopping center.

The lease includes signage on the east and north sides of the building, with more than a half-million vehicles passing by daily.

John R. Jones, GuideStone’s chief operating officer, said the new space “accomplishes two goals for GuideStone: It helps us in our ongoing efforts to aggressively manage costs and it helps create a workspace conducive to the way we work now, fostering collaboration, innovation and efficiency.
