Pastor David Sun’s Journey of Grace

Hear Pastor David Sun’s story of his journey of grace with a stopover at EAST. David (MDiv, 2019), like other mature students at EAST, comes with a rich set of experiences in life and ministry. Those experiences are then reviewed through fresh biblical-theological lens of Scripture, reflections, holistic application, and habit formation in the context of a multi-cultural missional community at EAST. Shalom.

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.
