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.
Teams of EAST students who completed their Cross-cultural Team Internship during the summer school break shared about their experiences at the recent chapel. Here’s a collage from a team who served at the Indian Malayalam ministry of Christ Church. We are grateful for brother Biju Samuel, an EAST alumni who now serves with Christ Church and hosted the team.
“Their willingness and trust for us to minister to their children was so refreshing,” shared one team member. “We have never met an all-men group praying so fervently at the Malayalam service,” said another.
Happy 49th National Day, Singapore!
EAST joins the nation to ask for God’s continual blessing on Singapore… so that she can be a blessing to her citizens, residents, and foreigners in her midst as well as to the regions beyond.
