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!

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.

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.
