EAST: A community you can count on

All students and alumni at EAST have a community they can count on to pray for them and walk together through challenging seasons of life and ministry. The peers, faculty and staff within each Mentoring Group are your friends, intercessors, encouragers and pillars of strong support through your learning journey.

The warmth of the community is present even in classes and the school library! There is always someone looking out for you, as long as you are a part of EAST.

You may not remember all your lessons in the classroom, but you’ll remember your mentors and friends who shared their lives with you at EAST. Your EAST family walks with you for the long run.

Shalom, and the Lord lead you to a community you can count on.

MG Ministry Weekend 2020 – Thanksgivings

We give thanks for the privilege of serving together as Mentoring Groups in the recent season of Ministry Weekend in September 2020! This is an annual time of coming together as Mentoring Groups to serve in ministry together either locally or abroad. We have gone online to reach communities in this unique season of safe distancing.

Our 9 Mentoring Groups and PIM (Partners in Ministry) team hosted 704 people at our webinars, which covered topics such as the discipling of our youth in today’s gadget world, the process of grieving, involving our whole family in worship at home, preparing and facilitating Bible study online, Biblical parenting and reaching out digitally.

A number of the webinars were collaborations with ministry practitioners and churches in India and Medan. We thank God for these partnerships abroad in this season of travel restrictions.

We also had collaborations with Cru Singapore staff for technical support and the equipping of our students with webinar hosting and emceeing skills. We are thankful for this training which has provided many of us with a much-needed familiarization with webinar platforms.

To everyone who has played a part in this years’ Ministry Weekend, a big THANK YOU to you for serving God in this ministry! The blessings of God be with you as you continue to journey with Him.

Here’s a video put together as our thanksgiving for Ministry Weekend 2020:


Asking the Right Questions in Facilitating Bible Study


In one of our recent Ministry Weekend webinars, our faculty Amy Lau spoke on using helpful questions as a way of engaging the text in Bible study. This was organised as part of an equipping series on the preparation and facilitation of online bible study.

One of the tips given was to use ‘who, what, why, when, where and how’ questions as a way of directing attention and facilitating the understanding of certain key points within the text in the Bible.

Here’s the video of this webinar for more details on this tip:
