Throwback Tuesday: New Testament 1 Class, 2012

The photo shows the New Testament 1 class conducted in 2012 and taught by Dr Rob MacEwen, then a resident faculty of EAST. The teacher has since returned to his home country, most of the students have graduated and are in ministry or the marketplace; some are married and have kids, others have taken or are taking advance degrees to be teachers, another has gone home to be with the Lord. All have journeyed through EAST together and have learned, grown, and served together as friends and fellow ministers. Such is the journey of life… and of learning in community! 

Watch the “Journey Through EAST” video to know more of the learning journey as seen through the eyes of one who studied at EAST.

EAST 25 Years of Highlights

Praise God together with EAST as we look back over the past 25 years to see His leading and provision in its formative years. EAST was formed to equip men and women of faith in theological and ministry development. The mission is to see students being “developed as Christlike leaders for the Great Commission in East Asia and around the world.”

 

In 2017, the year of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of EAST, we want to echo the Soli Deo Gloria of faith as we ascribe all glory to God alone. Hallelujah!

Developing Your Head, Heart, and Hands

Would you like to be developed holistically as a spiritual leader?

We seek to help develop and equip Christian workers, leaders, and ministers for the fulfilment of the Great Commission where they are. EAST seeks to develop servant leaders who are:

  • Committed to growing in Christ-likeness
  • Passionate spiritual multipliers
  • Learning and living out God’s Word
  • Communicating God’s truth effectively

 

EAST seeks to accomplish this mission through holistic learning, where students not only learn intellectually (“head”), their attitudes and character are also shaped (“heart”), leading to actions (“hands”). Each of the three dimensions is emphasized in the classroom and assignments as well as field ministry and internships, school retreats, ministry weekends, community life, and Mentoring Groups.
