The Delta Epsilon Chi Award recognizes graduating seniors from accredited institutions of The Association for Biblical Higher Education who have distinguished themselves by: intellectual achievement, Christian character, and leadership ability. The three Greek words translated “approved in Christ” (dokimos en Xhristos) found in Romans 16:10 begin with the three Greek letters, delta epsilon chi, and thus the name and meaning of the ABHE Honor Society.
Congratulations to these graduates who received additional awards at the 2021 Commencement!

"We came from Lithuania 4 years ago wanting to gain a Biblical education and prepare for the ministry. We were able to study here only by God’s provision through the people who supported the college for the purpose of spreading the Gospel in the whole world.
"Appalachian Bible College was a major way how God showed his faithfulness, his provision, and his power in our lives. The classes we took gave us confidence in the Scripture, the teachers encouraged us to run the race by their personal examples, the experience we gained helped to put our pride away and God’s gifts on display.
"The college and all the people we met here have been a pure blessing. We found a family here, and it will always be our home. As we prepare to go back to Lithuania and serve there, we will always remember our little West Virginia home with gratefulness and praise to God."
