Local Alumna serving at Toa Payoh Methodist Church: Agnes Goh

L to R: Wayne, Alumna Agnes Goh, Nicole (15), Sean (17)

EAST News caught up with local alumna Agnes Goh who graduated in 2018 with a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies through a series of short interview questions.

After graduation, I still did not know where I was to serve, but God led me patiently and clearly.
