EAST’s Physical Settings of the Bible course helps students better understand the biblical geography, history, and culture. The evening seminar by Dr. Keith Shubert was designed to enhance students’ personal understanding and study of the Bible. If you missed this class, do join us the next round.
EAST Field Supervisors’ Tea was held recently to commission students as Field Interns under their respective Field Supervisors and ministries.
Two students from Mongolia and Myanmar shared how the Lord has led them to full-time vocational ministry and to EAST for their theological development. It was one of the largest gatherings of Field Supervisors which was a great encouragement to all present. The EAST Field Practicum department is led by Mrs. Tan Ying Kheng.
EAST’s faculty, Dr. Kwa Kiem Kiok, spoke at a seminar on “Real Engagement with the LGBT.” This was followed by a panel which sought to address questions raised. The panel, chaired by Rev. Dr. Peter Lin (Queenstown Baptist) and beside Dr. Kwa, consisted of Dr. Poling Sun (Baptist Theological Seminary Singapore), Pastor Ben Chan (Focus on the Family Singapore), and Dr. Calvin Chong (Singapore Bible College).
The Christian Leadership Foundations course exposes and develops students to be growing leaders who know themselves, their God-given giftings and experiences, and their ministry opportunities. Dr. Roland Tan teaches the class and together they celebrated his birthday recently. What a special blessing!
What beats a great worship service? A great worship service with worshippers originating from around the world who are your classmates, teachers, and fellow staff. At the first chapel of the new academic year, it was a joyful reunion to worship God together, hear updates from the summer break internships and pray together. Watch the worship video.
Mentoring Group members led an EAST Chapel Worship on 30 July 2014. David (Korea) was the worship song leader with Samuel (Myanmar) as the backup singer. Dan (Philippines) was the percussionist, Joseph (Vietnam) at the keyboard and Edward (Korea) managing the powerpoint.
