East Asia School of Theology


East Asia School of Theology  is an inter-denominational theological school committed to develop biblically grounded leaders of spiritual movements for the global harvest.

EAST’s mission is to “develop and equip Christian leaders for the fulfilment of the Great Commission in East Asia and around the world.” It was established by Campus Crusade for Christ International in 1992. It is a legal division of Cru Asia Ltd., a registered charity incorporated in Singapore. EAST seeks to develop spiritual leaders who are:
• Committed to growing in Christ-likeness,
• Passionate spiritual multipliers,
• Learning and living out God’s Word, and
• Communicating God’s truth effectively.

The school seeks to accomplish this mission through holistic learning, that is students not only learn intellectually (‘know”), their attitudes and character are also shaped (“be”) and this leads to actions (“do”). Each of the three dimensions is emphasized in the classroom and assignments as well as field ministry and internships, school retreat, ministry weekend, community life, and Mentoring Groups.

EAST Extension Centers (EEC) being planted in various countries of Asia seeks to equip Christian leaders and pastors with the requisite quality and practical theological development for them to be effective Bible teachers, pastors, church planters, marketplace kingdom professionals, and spiritual leaders where they are without having to move overseas for their theological studies.

More than 4,000 have attended our courses and some 375 program graduates are serving in over 25 countries in Asia and around the world. Currently our staff and student body include those from East Asia, South Asia, South-East Asia, North and South America, and Europe.

EAST is a member of the International Leadership Consortium of Campus Crusade for Christ International, and accredited by Asia Theological Association (ATA) and Association for Theological Education in South East Asia (ATESEA) to offer Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degrees.
