Newly Arrived Students: Thanawat & Phichanida Wichaphon

L-R: Rev Jonathan Yao (seated), Wong Ee Yuing, Boon-Koh Aitee, Phichanida Wichaphon (Peung), Thanawat Wichaphon (Off)

Thanawat and Phichanida Wichaphons are the first couple to have arrived in Singapore from Thailand for our new semester this June. They are better known by their nicknames Off and Peung. Off has been enrolled in Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies since July 2022 and Peung has been attending online Partners-in-Ministry classes. They are thrilled to finally take the classes at EAST on-site in the upcoming semester and have face to face interactions with faculty, students and staff.

EAST News had the opportunity to ask a few questions to get to know this “cool couple”  better (as some have described them) and share their journey to EAST. Read more

Mid-year Student Orientation 2023


EAST Mid-year Student Orientation, January 2023

At the beginning of the second semester (Jan-May) 2023, a two-day orientation for new program students took place at EAST. These students hail from 6 countries in East Asia, South-East Asia, South Asia, and North America. We are thankful to God for leading each to do theological studies at EAST. Among them are ministers, church workers, missionaries, and working professionals. It was truly heartening to hear them share their stories–journeys of faith even as they arrive in EAST, Singapore for further equipping in a multi-cultural environment and for spiritual refreshment.

Please pray for each of them to experience God’s transforming work in their personal lives and ministry through their studies and cross-cultural exposure in Singapore and beyond.

Shorts: Student’s Views on Online Classes


What are EAST student’s views on online classes held last semester?

This is a pertinent question even as we begin a new academic year this month with all of our classes being held through online means. All first year classes are held online throughout the semester while the rest of classes are either online or blended. Hear what they have to say!

The video recording of three students featured above is safely done in their home during the circuit breaker period.
