CHESTER, W.Va. (BNc) — Ohio Valley University awarded Frank Higginbotham the Christian Service Award for 2012 during its lectureship week.

Few people have impacted the Greater Ohio Valley as much as brother Frank Higginbotham, long-time preacher for the Chester, W.Va., church.

Frank has been preaching the gospel for 60 years. The last 48 years have been spent working with the Chester church.

The success and quality of his efforts stand on their own merit and need no further enhancement.

The honor was bestowed on him Apr. 2.

One could not possibly give credit to brother Higginbotham without also commending his precious wife, Rose. Together they have contributed so much to the Lord’s church and will leave a legacy of love, truth, and faithful examples.
