The Christian Post highlights five big companies below where faith in God plays a major role in the lives of the people who lead them.Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., headquartered in Oklahoma City, Okla., is not just one of America’s largest privately owned businesses.

The company also employs 22,000 workers in 525 stores nationwide.
