25th Anniversary Letter from the President
23 January 2017
Dearly Beloved Partners in Ministry,
Warmest greetings in the Lord! I wish you a blessed 2017 filled with the Lord’s presence and favour.
EAST has increased in student enrolment and reached the limit of rented facilities. We have scaled beyond our borders to establish five EAST Extension Centers. By His grace we have privilege to touch lives from sixteen nations today. Truly, God has blessed supernaturally, including you and your partnership to make it possible. Thank you for the giving of yourselves generously in prayer and financial support.
2017 marks the 25th Anniversary of East Asia School of Theology. Born out of faith vision, EAST still seeks to train, equip and raise ministry practitioners for the Great Commission in East Asia and beyond. By His grace we have championed holistic approach to learning, embracing the head, heart, and hands through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
The faithful many have laboured at EAST in the past that we may have privilege to continue in His call. As never before, in the last five years, God has caused increased fruit… in faculty and staff recruitment, in transformed lives, as He pushes us to new mission frontiers through the Extension Centers.
We celebrate our 25th Anniversary of God’s goodness with sincere prayer that God will use EAST for the glory of God and His Kingdom goals.
Thank you for your irreplaceable part as we move ahead with unwavering passion as partners and co-workers in God’s Kingdom work.
Warmly in Christ for His glory,
Rev Dr Chan Chong Hiok
