Since I stand in for my colleague, Sarah Yap, as the Acting Director of Theological Education by Extension (Sarah is on 6-month sabbatical leave), I have received numerous enquiries concerning our TEE programme. Our TEE programme is specifically designed for working professional and those who are unable to do theological studies full time.
Some of the questions that are almost guaranteed to be raised by those enquiry for the programme include:
- How do I find time to study?
- How do I adjust to study life again since I have left school/college/university some years ago?
- Is theological studies very difficult?
- Will theological studies result in spiritual dryness since there is so much emphasis on the academic requirements?
I think the best way to answer the above questions is to hear it from those who are taking our TEE programme. One of our students, Pearlie, has blogged about her testimony, experience and thoughts in taking up the challenge of working towards a degree in Master of Christian Studies through our TEE programme. Read about it here - and don't forget to leave her a word of encouragement, if you can!
