Mentoring Group’s “Band of Brothers”

The Mentoring Group (or MG) is part of the student experience at EAST. Here is one such MG that has seen its members graduating over the past couple of years with the alumni spread out over more than one continent in ministry. Read what one such upcoming graduate has to say about his “band of brothers.”

Dr Michael Tien, MDiv class of 2018, (extreme right in the photo above) shared:

This is what EAST is about. Not just equipping and shaping of the mind but transformation of the heart through ministry. Bringing together intercultural experiences gripped by the love of the Lord and for one another. We are lifted higher as we stand on one another’s shoulders. Our reach extended as we clasp our hands together to work for a common purpose. This is my band of brothers, our motto “we meet, we eat”. After our time together in Singapore, we leave for other destinations of ministry. We join this mentoring group but we never leave! To God be all Glory as we press on.

Praise God!

 

Talk by Dr Joe Dongell: Loving From the Inside Out

Love is frequently thought of as an act of the will to benefit others, often in spite of our feelings and requiring some form of self-denial. But our experiences tell us this way of loving is beyond our human capacity; just think of the family member or co-worker we have difficulty loving! We need to regain the biblical vision of love that would dramatically revise our thinking about love and open up new ways of loving and ministering.

Dr. Joseph Dongell, PhD, is professor of Biblical Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary, USA. He is known for his courses on Inductive Bible Studies of the Gospel of Mark, the Letter to the Romans, and the Gospel of John. Dr Dongell is the author of John: A Bible Commentary in the Wesleyan Tradition (Wesley Press), The Gospel of Mark (OneBook: A Biblical Journey), a 32-week bible study lessons complete with a 50-min teaching video each week (Seedbed), and Sola Sancta Caritas, in which he explores John Wesley’s conviction that love is the operational centre of all things (Seedbed). He is an ordained elder and actively ministers as an associate pastor, a regular adult Sunday school teacher, an advisor of a seminary foundation, and trainer and instructor of ministerial training in the Wesleyan Church denomination in USA.

EAST Holy Land Study Tour 2018

15 Days, 25 November to 9 December 2018 — Organized by Travel 360 Pte Ltd.

Picture yourself cupping your hands to drink water at the same spring where Gideon’s band of 300 select men did the same, climbing the steps that led to the altar of the golden calf in the northern kingdom of Israel, or studying about Jesus calming the storms as you sail across the Sea of Galilee. This is an opportunity to study God’s Word in its original setting. For more information about the Study Tour email wendytan@travel360.sg or studytour@east.edu.sg.

Interpreting the Synoptic Gospels (May/June 2018 Intensive Course)

Find out if you are eligible to take this course using the Two Courses Free@EAST Promotion!

 

Interpreting the Synoptic Gospels (NT516/TS516, 3 credits)

22 May-1 June, 9.00 am-5.00 pm (starts on Tuesday, ends on the following Friday)

One-third of the pages of the New Testament are occupied by the first three Gospels-Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Students of the Bible have often asked, “Why are these three Gospels so similar?”, and, “Why do they have so many significant differences from each other?” These Gospels are the primary sources on the life and teachings of Jesus and they also inform us about the theology of their authors and the concerns of the local churches then. You will learn a variety of interpretive methods to help you go deeper in your understanding of these important books.

 

Rob MacEwen, PhD

Rob, a former missionary to East Asia, is passionate about helping others understand and apply God’s Word. He has authored Matthean Posteriority, a book that explores literary relationships between the first three gospels.

 

Registration deadline is Wednesday, 15 May 2018.   Online registration of courses at www.east.edu.sg or contact registrar@east.edu.sg for registration form.
