WHY GIVE TO BGST?

Dr Philip Satterthwaite BGST Principal

BGST has a unique ministry among the theological colleges in Singapore, offering a high-quality theological education to ‘the whole people of God’, to all Christians whatever their profession or walk in life. We are constantly seeking to upgrade the theological training we offer and make it more accessible, particularly to those who have limited free time available for theological studies.

In Singapore theological education has traditionally been offered at rather low cost compared to what is normal in, say, North America or Europe. BGST is no exception to this rule: this means that the fees we charge for our courses cover only 20-25% of our total running costs. We have, therefore, to look to churches and individuals to help us make up the shortfall.

We are deeply grateful to those who have faithfully given to the work of BGST over the years. We invite you to share in the ministry of BGST: your generosity will help us equip Christians for service both in the church and in the marketplace, and will thus contribute towards the growth of God’s Kingdom in Singapore and in S-E Asia.

There are several ways you can support BGST.

Pray for our ministry

  • Guidance upon the work of BGST, particularly in bringing us into contact with a number of people and organisations with whom we have formed, or may form, good partnerships.
  • Pray for our upcoming 26th Convocation and Thanksgiving Service. The Convocation will be held at Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church on Saturday 27th May 2017, 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm. The speaker will be Mr Lawrence Ko, of the Singapore Centre for Global Mission.
  • Pray for Prof. Jeff Greenman, President and Professor of Theology & Ethics at Regent College, Vancouver, as he will be giving a public lecture on the topic: “Lived Faith – The Challenge of Christian Ethics”on 13th June 2017 at St. John’s – St. Margaret’s Church, 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm.

Leaving A BGST Legacy

Since 1989, BGST has helped many Christians grow in their faith, and learn how to apply God’s Word and the wisdom of our spiritual forefathers at their workplace, homes and churches. To ensure BGST continues its work in the generations to come, we invite you to consider participating in our BGST Legacy (BL) initiative.

BL encourages both friends and alumni to consider giving to BGST in their estate planning in anticipation of the inevitable. There are different ways to leave a bequest:

  1. Gift of a percentage of your estate
  2. Gift of a specific dollar amount or asset
  3. Gift from the balance or residue of your estate
  4. Gift from a retirement asset such as CPF Retirement balance

A comprehensive will requires much deliberation and planning, so that it caters to the needs of your loved ones, and supports the different aspects of God’s work that you are concerned for (please see Appendix A for what is entailed). We recommend the use of a financial advisor and qualified solicitor to plan and write the will. For those interested to leave a legacy for BGST, Mr Victor Tan, Executive Director of Life Planning Associates, is happy to provide estate planning services and waive his advisory fees, subject to certain conditions (see Appendix A for details). Victor has more than two decades of experience in comprehensive financial planning, investment advice and insurance planning.

If you would like to consider planned giving, please email inquiry@bgst.edu.sg or call +65-6227-6815 Ext 224 for more information.
