L-R: Joel (brother), William (father), Julia (mother), Amos & Bernice (girlfriend)

This new academic year, we have about 10 new students from five different countries and Amos Chew is a Singaporean student who has enrolled for Master of Arts in Leadership (MALD). Below is a short Q&A to get to know him just a little better as he begins his journey of development through EAST.

1.     How did I find out about EAST, and came to study at EAST?

I found out about EAST from a friend! He was telling me about EAST and what he has studied and learnt there. I was interested in learning more of the Bible, so I went to look up the EAST website, browsed through the courses, and found the MALD program. I have always been fascinated about the topic on leadership and have always wanted to learn more. After looking at the modules and praying about it, I decided to enquire and apply. Like they said, the rest is history.

eOpen House Reaches Out

EAST President Rev Dr Chan Chong HIok (right) and Dean of Academics Rev Liong Kwok Wai (left) warmly welcoming participants.

Just two days before the eOpen House was to take place, we only had 35 registrants which included some of our own staff and students. This event had been planned months ahead, and the publicity had also started way earlier than our first eOpen House in March 2021. God nonetheless provided the guests on the actual day, with over 100 from 10 different countries who zoomed in. We are grateful for God’s faithfulness in directing different ones to EAST, even in the midst of the pandemic.

Our EAST President Rev Dr Chan Chong HIok and Dean of Academics Rev Liong Kwok Wai both gave the participants a very warm welcome, along with our lively and interactive emcees, student Daniel Yoncer and ministry staff Agnes Kao. We had three breakout rooms catering to Visiting Students, International Students and Singapore Students hosted respectively by Rev Jonathan Yao & Dr Benson Goh, Rev Jacob Li & Ms Aitee Koh, and Dr Lau Ying Kheng & Ms Wong Ee Yuing. Different students were able to share their experiences at EAST during breakout sessions to give the participants a glimpse of what some termed as a little bit of “heaven on earth” while studying at EAST.
