Reconnecting as a Community

We recently reconnected as a school community with a day of much fun with Mentoring Group outings and community games on campus. Having an all-school event at the end of the EAST Aleph (new student immersion exercise) has indeed been a conducive time for all of our staff and students to connect and start on journeying together this new semester.

EAST Student Council: Serving as unto the Lord

L-R: Mikeel Arana (President), Rebecca Chen (Treasurer), Japheth Chew (Vice-President) and Anj Pantaleon (Prayer Co-ordinator)


At a recent EAST Student Council’s Annual General Meeting, we had a time of appreciation for our Student Council (SC) 2022-2023 members who have been faithfully serving the EAST community over the past year. We have been very blessed with the zest, joy, community spirit and prayerful ministry that the SC has brought into the EAST community.

This outgoing cohort of SC is made up of international students from around Asia. We have witnessed a high level of synergy when this team came together to serve and lead the EAST community. This synergy was felt by the entire school, and it has energized all through the times of celebration fellowship, worship, and community games. The SC had also sensitively led us through prayer sessions in refocusing on God amidst the stress of studies and frenzy of activities.

Crossing Cultures Digitally with CCTI

One of EAST CCTI (Cross-Cultural Team Internship) teams this year crossed borders digitally to work with ministry partners in Cambodia to conduct sessions of outreach and equipping to communities of young people. The sessions covered leadership education, life skills, bible study and music as topics of interest for young people. Read the Team Cambodia ministry report here and watch the video above or click here.

CCTI ministry is typically cross-cultural as teams will be ministering to people groups of different languages and cultures. In addition, teamwork within CCTI teams is also cross-cultural because these teams are typically made up of students from different nations. On top of learning how best to communicate with each other in the team, each team must also plan and decide how best to minister in a cross-cultural setting. This is indeed a putting together of the heart, head and hands–the holistic approach of equipping at EAST.

Mentoring Groups, Go Forth!


This coming weekend, EAST Mentoring Groups (MGs) head out to various locations in the neighbouring region to serve and minister in a variety of contexts. These short ministry stints are opportunities for our program students to practice servant leadership and apply practical ministry skills together with their fellow MG members. Ministry Weekend is thus part of the holistic development of head, heart and hands in our students that puts classroom learning into hands-on practice.

Our Mentoring Groups will be serving in a culture outside of their own while learning how best to work together in teams. This provides a rich environment where team unity, conflict resolution, and growth can take place. Read more

Chapels, Start.

We have started Chapel on campus this semester with everyone gathering as a community to pray, worship, be encouraged by testimonies and be built up by the sharing of the Word.

We were glad to have our Dean of Academics, Rev Liong Kwok Wai encourage everyone about being a light unto the world as the opening message at the first Chapel. We were also glad to participate in Communion together as community at the start of this semester.

There will be several more sessions of Chapel to come, and we pray that they will continue to be fruitful, refreshing and encouraging to the EAST community and beyond.
