At EAST, Your Marriage Matters

Yes, especially for people in ministry, the health of our marriages matter. We must make the time and put in the effort to build up our spouses, and sow into our relationship with one another. This is how married couples continue growing as healthy partners in ministry.

Our faculty, Jacob and Josephine Li, are teaching the Christian Marriage course online where our married students and other couples in ministry enroll for a season of marriage-building. This course has recently been offered with the Free8Online promotion. As a result, we have a dozen couples from Canada and Singapore who have joined the course for an intentional season of building their marriage.

We praise God that the reach of this important course is now expanded through online means. Truly COVID-19 is not just a disruptor but also a teaching ministry accelerator!
