When I went on a mission trip before joining GMMA, I was amazed by how much God is able to work through people who have the same missional mindset and who serve as one body in Christ. From that mission trip, I wanted to experience more of God’s work and GMMA is a place where I know I will grow to learn how to faithfully serve God through missions with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Taking part in GMMA means serving with the same heart as Christ, to heal people not just physically, but spiritually. It also helps me be able to live a Christ-centered life with others pursuing the health profession. From mission trips with GMMA, my understanding of missions has been redefined. Missions is not just about doing something big as a mission trip, but missions is an everyday thing. It’s the willingness to be used by God in whatever way he plans. GMMA provides a community to be the missions in our global and local community. And I am so thankful that I can be a part of God’s work, even in small ways. I hope you can check us out to see how you can serve in local and global missions too!

To me, GMMA is another family. It’s a group of brothers and sisters that build eachother up and encourage one another to pursue a Christ centered life. GMMA’s goal is to help prepare future Christian healthcare professionals serve the local community while creating opportunities to send students, like myself, on medical missions. Through my first mission trip (with GMMA), I learned how to serve God whether it’s through the church or in a professional setting. GMMA has taught me how to bear good fruit. Without God as my foundation in any aspect of life, no fruit can bear. Serving in GMMA has truly been a blessing. GMMA has taught me to serve God everywhere I go.

I’ve always had a heart for missions and GMMA provided me an unique opportunity to combine my heart for missions and my interest in medicine. After going on a mission trip and seeing how God could use us and the physical healing we could provide through the clinics, I realized the impact that GMMA could have on many underserved people in the world and on students aiming for a career in medicine. I wanted to contribute to GMMA as a whole and the UC Davis chapter, so I took on the role of treasurer! I am excited to see what God will do through our chapter and am hoping that we can learn to lean on each other as a body of Christ and ultimately on God.

When I first heard about GMMA I was amazed that an organization combined faith and the professional health field. I felt that this organization embodies what was important to me and helped me understand how my future career in the health field can glorify God. After going on my first short-term GMMA medical mission, I felt God’s love and power work in communities other than my own. I believe that GMMA provides a great opportunity to connect with mentors who use their careers and talents for God’s kingdom and to spread the love of Christ in different areas of the world. GMMA’s goal combines my passion to enter the professional world and my passion to pursue Christ in all that I do.

GMMA is a unique medical missions club because God is at the center of everything we do. I love the aspect of helping to heal spiritually and physically. GMMA intertwines Christianity with medicine. I wish to learn how to incorporate my Christian beliefs in my future career, and I believe GMMA will equip me with the skills to do so. God has been so present in my life and has truly blessed me; I need to stay strong in my faith for the future. Through GMMA missions I have seen the power of persistent prayer, and proof that God leaves no one behind. I am blessed and excited to serve in GMMA. Go Ags!

I joined GMMA last year as my only club in college. It was very refreshing because I did not have anything to distract myself from studies and just to have a break from everything else. I ended up going to the winter mission trip which was so eye opening and a blessing to preach the word and provide medical care to underprivileged families. I will continue to come out to GMMA and plan to give my everything for the club. Go ags!

About UCD Student Chapter

The Davis GMMA student chapter was founded in the spring of 2017, with the approval and support from the GMMA Board Members and prayers from our brother chapters. We are in our inaugural year at Davis, and we hope to sustain this community for future years to come.

We welcome everyone with open arms!
