New Student: Sebastian Tramitz from Germany

L-R: Dr Joseph Khoo, Mrs Boon Aitee, Issac Do, Sebastian Tramitz


Below is a short reflection of our new student Sebastian Tramitz from Germany. He is embarking on a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry at EAST while relocating to Singapore and embracing a new culture, or many new cultures at EAST and equipping himself here. His short reflection of his journey to EAST is below.

I know about EAST through various people I met on my journey of finding my path to change location to Singapore. One key person was a board member of EAST whom I met at the church I attended. He got me in touch with Cru Singapore through another person on the board of Cru. He then connected me with a Cru ministry leader and alumnus of EAST, which finally led to the meeting of Jonathan Yao and a site visit on which I made a decision that I want to apply.

EAST was very honoured to have Dr Robert K MacEwen return as an Adjunct Faculty to teach an intensive course on the Exposition of Matthew from 22 November to 1 December which just ended last week. Dr Rob had travelled from The Netherlands with his wife Dr Lisa in the midst of a busy term time from Tyndale Theological Seminary where he is the Academic Dean to serve the students at EAST.

Welcoming The Winslows Back!

The Winslows (L-R: Sze Chieh, Matthew, Alethea, Amber, Hudson)


Matthew and Sze Chieh Winslows together with their children Hudson, Amber and Alethea have spent the last six years in the United States as Matthew pursued his PhD Studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. While they were there, EAST News had done an interview with the family. Now that they are back, EAST welcomes the family back to EAST and find out how they are doing. Below is a short update.

  1. How has the transition been for your family from living in the US for the past six years?

Matthew: We really enjoyed our time in the US and had a great community there at our church in the Chicago area, so we miss our friends. I also love the change of seasons in the US and the space so I miss both of those things as well. But in coming back to Singapore, we have enjoyed reconnecting with old friends. We’ve also enjoyed eating some good Asian food here.
