Concluding our Intensive Classes for 2018

As we finished up with our intensive classes for this year, we realised that these were the last few classes that we would have at 1 Dorset Road before we transition to Grace (S.C.C.) Church as our interim venue for our classes from January 2019.

We thank God for His provision of venues for the equipping work at EAST to continue.

Christians are living in a very challenging era.

It also explores a survey of the existing major research findings of cultural values and challenges in marriage and family among representative Asian cultural groups.

Find out if you are eligible to take any one of these courses using the First Course Free@EAST Promotion!

LF546 / TS546 Discipleship, Soul Care & Spiritual Growth (3 credits)
Fridays, 1.45 pm-5.00 pm

This is a class that focuses on soul care or “soul training” of the disciple of Jesus Christ who aspires to grow, and be a leader.  The objective of this class is not to give a comprehensive course on the discipline of spiritual formation, but on the believer’s ongoing growth and formation; and especially for leaders and shepherds, how to deal with pitfalls that crowd out our passion and space for God, e.g., living a marginless lifestyle and burnout.  There will, therefore, be hands-on soul training exercises for the student to apply spiritual disciplines discussed in class, and guide to helping them and people they shepherd rewrite their narratives in God’s power. This is a no-audit class.
