Dr. Akiko Kobayashi
The BIOLA GMMA student chapter began in 2016 with hopes of planting missional hearts in the students of Orange County. With the help of Dr. Michelle Lee as our mentor, Jessica Sin, the National Student Chapter Coordinator, we were able to start with a strong support system. The majority of our student chapter consists of undergraduates and we strongly encourage students from all schools around the Orange County to join us. As a student chapter, we aspire to partner with different students around the county who share the same heart for missions and to do life with one another. Our BIOLA GMMA hopes to equip and prepare students to live out their callings to the fullest extent NOW.
Goals for 2017-2018 school year
1. Coordinate bi-weekly general meetings to allow networking and mentorship
2. Provide fellowship opportunities outside of our general meetings
3. Networking to provide semesterly Mexico Mission trips and short-term summer Medical Missions opportunities
4. Promote a mission and global minded culture amongst the students
