Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri, has met the certification requirements for the fifth consecutive year as one of the "Best Christian Places to Work in the United States."
The survey, administered by the Best Christian Workplaces Institute (BCWI), involved 11,869 employees in 124 organizations across North America to identify great workplaces with a Christian mission and/or values.
The list of organizations awarded certification was announced at the Christian Leadership Alliance Conference, and was published on "Christianity Today International's" online magazine.
"Our research indicates leaders in these organizations demonstrate high levels of character, competence and compassion, while employees show high levels of commitment," said Al Lopus, president of the BCWI.
"Certification also identifies organizations as good investments for donors and volunteers," he said.
Fifty-six businesses and institutions were certified this year by the BCWI, including just seven in the Higher Education category.
