Reflections on Gender & Sexuality in Christian Ministry Class


The Study on Gender & Sexuality in Christian Ministry online course was recently conducted by Dr Heng Hwee Chuang, an EAST Adjunct Faculty. Below are some reflections from her students regarding what they have gleaned from the eight-day intensive course.

My professor is a knowledgeable and experienced individual on the subject. I appreciate how she simplifies complex concepts, making them easy to understand.

EAST IMPACT inaugural cohort


A New Way of Getting a Theological Education

July was a month bustling with excitement at EAST. Not only did we begin a new school year with new students in our resident school, we also welcomed our inaugural cohort of 16 students to our EAST IMPACT program.

What is IMPACT? It is a new model of accredited theological training that is self-paced, adaptive to the learner’s ministry context and competency-based. It is catered to practitioners in ministry who would like to be equipped theologically while still serving in their respective mission fields. For the learning to be effective, every IMPACT program student would have a mentor team of three, comprising of a Faculty mentor, a Vocational mentor and a Life mentor. This mentor team will help the student grasp the “Content, Craft and Character” that he is learning. As the curriculum is self-paced, the student can take as short as a few months to as long as he needs to earn his degree.
