Recognition

Steve Green, president of Hobby Lobby arts and crafts retail stores, is this year's recipient of the National Bible Association's John M. Templeton Biblical Values Award. The award is given annually in recognition of a business leader who exemplifies Biblical values in the marketplace.

“Biblical values are at the core of Hobby Lobby's business — from closing stores on Sundays to defending religious liberty. The bar has been set high for Biblical values in the workplace,” Richard Glickstein, the Bible association's president, said. “It is truly an honor to receive the prestigious Templeton award from the NBA,” Green said. “I am humbled to join the ranks of other leaders who are committed to the Bible to guide their spiritual and religious beliefs as well as their business.”

Green will be recognized at the annual National Bible Association awards luncheon on April 15 at the Union League Club in New York City. The association also will make a $25,000 donation to a nonprofit charity designated by Green that has biblical values.
