David & Steve Green

Host: Dr. Tim Clinton

July 28, 2022

In 1970, David and Barbara Green took a $600 loan to make miniature picture frames to sell out of their home. Two years later, they opened their first store: Hobby Lobby. Today, Hobby Lobby has nearly one thousand stores and over forty thousand employees across the United States. On today’s edition of Family Talk, David Green and his son, Steve Green, explain how they see retail as an avenue for ministry. David also expounds upon his conviction to give away large sums of Hobby Lobby’s profit, keep the stores closed on Sundays, and place Christ-centered, full-page newspaper ads on Christmas and Easter. Steve, who became president of Hobby Lobby in 2004, affirms God’s call on the Green family to be wise stewards and bold evangelists in all of their endeavors.
