MAC Channels

  • MAC Channels (www.cgst.edu/macchannels) is a public online platform dedicated to marketplace ministry. Supported by CGST and created by CGST Marketplace Alumni Club (MAC), MAC Channels features short talks and reflective articles. Content mainly comes from messages and stories that were shared in meetings, classes or activities by CGST professors, alumni and students. In the highly-complex and diversified marketplace context, we pray that this online platform will become a resourceful powerhouse for Christian marketplace believers. Through the integration of faith and work, we strive to provide reflective perspectives and ways to tackle marketplace issues. We also pray that this online platform will provide applicable and viable resources for churches to serve their working people in the pews. The mission of MAC is to establish a marketplace network, to enact the marketplace mission, and to promote the marketplace movement.

  2. Pray for the new student recruitment in the coming school year, that God will guide those responding to His calling, be equipped and study at CGST.
  3. Pray that through the 2017 Apr-Jun TEE programs and 'Word of Life' Bible Study classes, students may be richly blessed by His grace.
