The annual Eagle Banquet is a fundraising event promoting the school’s “TRANSFORMED” Capital Campaign. The campaign is allowing us to purchase a permanent home for CHS on its historic property. Thanks to your help, we have raised $7.5 million in gifts and commitments since 2016. The banquet gives supporters an inside glimpse into the current life of the school and its award-winning programs.
The Eagle Banquet has hosted notable speakers, including Steve Forbes, Tim Tebow, Mike Huckabee and Oliver North. This year, we are proud to present Steve Green, president of Hobby Lobby and founder of the Museum of the Bible.
Steve Green became President of Hobby Lobby in 2004. He is a national speaker on both business and philanthropy interests, always focusing on how his faith intersects with his life endeavors.
Mr. Green serves as Founder for Museum of the Bible – a 430,000-square-foot museum that is dedicated to a scholarly and engaging presentation of the Bible’s impact, history, and narrative. The Museum opened in 2017 in Washington D.C., three blocks from the U.S. Capitol.
Mr. Green has authored three books: Faith in America, The Bible in America and This Dangerous Book. He and his wife, Jackie, have been married for more than 30 years and have six children and four grandchildren. They reside in Oklahoma City, where Hobby Lobby is headquartered.
