Asking the Right Questions in Facilitating Bible Study


In one of our recent Ministry Weekend webinars, our faculty Amy Lau spoke on using helpful questions as a way of engaging the text in Bible study. This was organised as part of an equipping series on the preparation and facilitation of online bible study.

One of the tips given was to use ‘who, what, why, when, where and how’ questions as a way of directing attention and facilitating the understanding of certain key points within the text in the Bible.

Here’s the video of this webinar for more details on this tip:

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!
