Run the Race to Win – Rick Langston @Homecoming

How does one complete the race of life and emerge victorious in the eyes of God?

In his inimitable style, Dr Rick Langston told the story of failure of some and the success of others in the marathon of life. Drawing from his deep understanding of God’s Word and a rich lifetime of ministry, he exhorts each of us to run the race… and WIN! Then he outlines a biblical strategy for us to do so… answering the HOW it can be done.

A devotional from Dr Rick Langston recorded at Naples, Florida. This was addressed to all alumni, staff, and faculty present at the inaugural EAST Homecoming Retreat 2017 on the first day of the retreat, 11 May 2017. The devotional speak of longevity in faithfully discharging God’s call to serve Him faithfully in integrity all the days of our lives. According to Apostle Paul, the success in the race of life and ministry is not due to the runner’s speed–how fast–but on how we run it.


Rick is the founding faculty of EAST when it started in 1992 and continued in various leadership roles while teaching as a Resident Faculty. He was the Associate Dean of Academics when he and Laurel left Singapore for ministry back in the US. He is currently an EAST Adjunct Faculty. He and Laurel are much loved by many students and faculty/staff that they ministered with over the years at EAST. We praise God for their lives and ministry over the years and their continuing ministry beyond EAST.

Impact of Field Practicum on Life’s Mission

How does one apply biblical and theological principles in real life? Students do so through supervised field practicums. Field supervisors coach them in their personal growth and development of their practical ministry.  Michael Tien, one of those who have completed their field practicum, shared its impact on him which has resulted in a missional approach to his business and ministry.

At the recent Field Supervisors’ Tea, the students undergoing field practicum were prayerfully commissioned by their field supervisors. Dr Lau Ying Kheng, EAST Field Education Director, expressed deep gratitude for the ongoing partnerships we have with the field supervisors and their churches or organisations.

If you would like to partner with EAST in offering field practicums with your church or organisation, please contact us at or come for a visit to our school.

ETHOS Conference 2017 – Justice & the Common Good


“But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream” (Amos 5:24). Justice is one of the most important themes in the Bible! Justice flows from the very heart and character of the God who reveals himself in its pages. What is biblical justice? How can the Church bear witness to the just God in a world tainted by such gross injustice? How can Christians work towards the common good in the wake of suspicion, alienation and discrimination? This conference seeks to address these and many other issues.

Date & Time: Sat, 30 Sep 2017, 9am–5.30pm (Registration opens at 8.30am)

Venue: Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church, 77 Prinsep Street, S188649

For conference schedule, details & registration, please visit Entry by registration only. Registration closes on 28 Sep 2017. Contact us at 6304 3765 or email or visit for further updates.
