UCB GMMA Officers
President | 4th Year
It’s hard to find words to describe exactly what GMMA is. If anything, GMMA is a reminder that there are more important things than the grades and fears that seem so prominent in my life. This group of incredibly compassionate and Christ-loving people is a constant reminder that God can easily take even a group of sleep deprived students and perform marvelous works through them. I am beyond blessed to be a part of GMMA and to have the chance to see God working firsthand, both in Berkeley and abroad. It’s a joy to be on this GMMA journey with this group of amazing brothers and sisters, and I’m excited to see what God has in store for our little Berkeley chapter.
Hayoung David Oh
Vice President | 4th Year
God has and is continuing to use GMMA to help me gain a deeper understanding of my walk with Him. I have learned more of His heart towards all His people, to hope in His resurrection, and to pray fervently for Jesus’ second coming. As for this upcoming year, I am excited to see how God will mold me, our board, and the entire Berkeley Chapter. I desire to see God’s kingdom built through local outreach, short-term mission trips, and Christ-centered relationships. It is my privilege to be part of an organization that puts Jesus first in all things. Go Bears!
Public Relations | 4th Year
GMMA has been a great blessing in my life. Growing up, I developed a desire to serve people in need and shine God’s light through my actions. Furthermore, I came to believe that becoming a doctor would best enable me to fulfill these dreams. Becoming a part of GMMA has positively influenced my journey, as it allowed me to meet mentors living out their faith in the medical field, and engage with others that share my passions. It has led me to continue to “run with perseverance”, and I hope that it will become a source of encouragement and loving community for you!
Treasurer | 4th Year
Coming into college, I lost sight of my relationship with God as I chased after idols of success, academics, and career. GMMA was where I reestablished God’s lordship over my life and realized that God can work through me. After my first mission trip with GMMA, I realized that God’s vision for me is much greater than what I can pursue. Through God’s grace and the power of the Gospel, I will serve Jesus through GMMA and glorify God in all areas of life.
Secretary | 3rd Year
Stepping into college as a freshman, I was inexperienced and wanted to explore how I can incorporate my faith into my future career. I had always been interested in health care and prayed that I could go on some kind of medical missions. To my surprise, God answered this prayer through GMMA. Even though I had so many questions about health care and how to survive in Berkeley, the community I found in GMMA patiently taught me how to always turn and fix my eyes on God. Beyond just going to medical missions and receiving mentorship from healthcare professionals, GMMA became a community of brothers and sisters who challenge and encourage me to live for the glory of God in every venture I take.
Missions Coordinator | 3rd Year
When I entered college, I was introduced to GMMA and truly believed that I found a gem that I didn’t know existed! GMMA is a community of believers who are passionate about glorifying God through their careers as current or future health professionals. I’ve had the privilege of building relationships with these professionals and students, through whom I’ve learned that more than physical healing, spiritual healing is of utmost importance. I am excited to say that GMMA has been there as a community to challenge me to grow closer to Christ and live a missional life, and I hope it will provide that source of growth for you as well!
