New VP of Client Relations Announced

Rev. Daniel B. Gulden has been selected to serve as Vice President of Client Relations for the Indianapolis-based Pension Fund of the Christian Church. Gulden comes to Pension Fund from Sandy Springs Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) where he is the Senior Minister.

In the newly created role, Gulden will lead the Area Directors who will focus on creating and establishing new employer relationships, promoting Pension Fund's products and services, providing outstanding customer service, and ensuring members are retirement ready. Gulden will report to Emily A. Frische, the newly named Chief Marketing Officer, and work in Pension Fund's offices located in Indianapolis.

Gulden shared, 'I am honored to serve with Pension Fund. Together we can develop new relationships and strengthen our relationships with current members. This role is the perfect combination of my work experience and my calling, and I am grateful to serve the church in this way.'

'Danny's vast relational network in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) combined with his sales background provides Pension Fund with the right mix of business and pastoral leadership,' stated Pension Fund President, Todd A. Adams. Frische added, 'He brings a unique blend of leadership, mentoring, ministerial, and business expertise to our new team.'

Rev. Daniel B. Gulden holds a B.A. in Political Science from the University of West Georgia and a Master of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. Prior to entering the ministry, he was a successful Sales Executive with CareerBuilder.com, and has served in multiple ministerial positions over his career. Currently he serves as the Senior Minister at Sandy Springs Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) just outside of Atlanta. Danny is a lifelong member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

He has served the church on the Administrative Committee, the General Minister and President Search Committee, the Georgia Regional Minister Search Committee, the General Board, and the Council on Christian Unity Board. He is a seasoned workshop leader and key note speaker. In addition, he has been a part of numerous international mission trips, and is an alumnus of the Bethany Fellows.

Pension Fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Inc. provides pension and retirement savings accounts for clergy and lay employees of congregations, regions, general ministries and church-related colleges and seminaries of the Stone-Campbell/Restoration Movement. Pension Fund manages over $2.9 billion in net assets on behalf of those serving in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and related international ministries. Pension Fund began in 1895, when then Governor and Christian Church Minister Ira J. Chase died, leaving a blind widow and four children. An offering of over $2,700 provided for a house and living expenses. This offering began our predecessor organization, the Board of Ministerial Relief.
