MGs in Ministry Weekend Action

Our Mentoring Groups have been serving together over the recent weekends in various webinars as an outreach to the community over online platforms.

As the webinars covered a range of varied topics, we have gleaned much from the learning experience of hosting the webinars and listening along to our speakers’ messages.

This year’s Ministry Weekend has indeed been a unique one for our Mentoring Groups, as we learned how to reach the community online instead of physical seminars. Yes, it was a steep learning curve as online platforms were new to many of us. Still, we are giving thanks for the learning experiences we have had in adjusting to such new normals in ministry.

As we look ahead to new normals and new challenges in ministry, we can keep Deuteronomy 31:8 in mind as our encouragement from the Lord:

The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you;
He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
– Deuteronomy 31:8 –

Be blessed and encouraged, as you walk with the Lord today and in the days ahead.

MG Ministry Weekend Goes Online!

As Mentoring Groups (MGs) meet online in this season of safe distancing, our MGs will also leverage on online platforms this semester to reach the community during Ministry Weekend.

Ministry Weekend has been an annual time for each of our MGs to serve together in ministry over a weekend, either locally or abroad. This semester’s Ministry Weekend is unique as many areas of ministry have gone online.

Preparations have already begun, and the faculty, staff and students in our MGs have been working together over online platforms to get ready.

The EAST webinars in the coming weeks will thus be the result of our MGs’ preparation, and registration for these webinars is available through the respective webinar publicity pages on our website. See you at the webinars!

Mentoring Groups Continue Online

Mentoring Groups are a key component of our students’ learning journeys. There is much to glean from sharing life and ministry with fellow students, and from being discipled by an EAST faculty committed to journey with a Mentoring Group from matriculation to graduation.

Even as EAST classes are conducted online at this time for safe distancing, Mentoring Groups also gather online for regular sessions of fellowship, prayer and encouragement.

The spirit of journeying together in life and ministry continues as we adapt and leverage on online platforms to bridge our faculty and students together for regular Mentoring Group sessions.

Alumna: EAST has a very special place in my heart

Janice Tay, Alumna turned Fund Development Coordinator at EAST

Janice came to EAST through her pastor’s recommendation. The lesson that really stuck with her while at EAST is doing ministry integration through the head, the heart and the hands. Her favourite class at EAST was Bible Study Methods and Hermeneutics and Mentoring Group. “I really enjoy Bible Study Methods class. I learnt to observe, interpret and apply the Bible into my own life. I enjoyed the ladies fellowship in the Mentoring Group and sharing our lives together.”

Janice’s favourite teachers at EAST are Dr Keith Shubert, Rev Jacob Li and Mrs Josephine Goh. Dr Keith Shubert is very knowledgeable. He has a wealth of knowledge and he is a treasure trove of knowledge. Rev Jacob Li is very well-equipped and gives his 100% to his students. Mrs Josephine Goh, her mentoring group leader, is very passionate about mentoring people and has a very “on the ball” personality. like an energiser bunny.
