“God has blessed me and provided so much for me that I want to be able to give back to Him through missions. I hope to spread the love of God with everyone I encounter because He has given me such an indescribable sense of joy and peace that I cannot keep to myself. I’m excited to be able to share God’s love, and I feel so privileged to be a part of GMMA. I can’t wait to see how God will use me through missions.”

“What I love about GMMA is the permanent relationships we gain from it. Not only do we get first hand experience with medical professionals, but we get to form unforgettable friendships with those we meet on missions and grow in Christ with our brothers and sisters. I’m so blessed to serve in GMMA and be a part of this incredible journey. My vision for UOP’s chapter is for us to serve with Christ-centered hearts and to share the love of Christ within our campus as well as to the places we go. I’m very excited to see each and every one of us grow and fulfill our duties as children of God.”


Missions Director & Fundraising: Christina Chung

3rd Year Biology Undergrad Student

“In my junior year of high school, I encountered God. Prior, I lived a meaningless life meeting people’s expectations, losing myself in the process. God revealed His unconditional love for me and sought out my true self, not by what people made of me. That day changed my life forever and I decided to live solely for Jesus! His love heals, restores, and gives peace like no other. My mission through GMMA is to spread the good news and provide healthcare for those in need.”

“God has shown me unlimited love and countless blessings. He’s there when i’m happy, He’s there when i’m sad, He’s by my side through it all. I would like to give God glory and share the beauty of His grace to many others. Through GMMA I will be able to share with people all around the world the meaning of real love.I am looking forward to seeing what God has prepared for GMMA and our missions.”

“I came into GMMA by seeing it at the club fair. I saw it was the perfect mix of service and faith to Jesus, a blend of both what my career will be and what the Christian faith is. GMMA really is an opportunity sent by God to me to show love through healthcare and service to people all around the world. It helped me to understand how Christ love is working globally and spreading to all nations. I hope to be a part of his great commission to bring the broken to Christ.”

Vice President: Jennifer Jung

4th Year Biology Undergrad Student

Through GMMA, I’ve been able to experience the gospel in a more deep, tangible way. GMMA gives students the opportunity to see how their future aspirations can be used to spread the gospel and serve the kingdom of God. It has been so inspiring and such a blessing to work with other students and health professionals who are so dedicated to living a life for Christ.

“GMMA has helped me found a community within college. I found GMMA to be so unique due the fact that it was an opportunity to be able to combine my faith with my future profession. Being able to learn from the various mission trips that GMMA has to offer has been such a blessing and learning experience in my life. GMMA has just made my life so fulfilling and satisfying to just be a Christian, and I wish to be able to love on others through the medical aspect.

GMMA has inspired me to not remain stagnant in my faith, and continues to push me to be the best Christian I can be!”

“I believe I stumbled upon GMMA through an unlikely, but faith-driven set of circumstances. Before I became involved, I considered myself a Sunday Christian who never felt he had had any sort of fellowship nor community with fellow Christians. Thanks to GMMA, I have learned to trust in God and take risks. I had taken my very first mission trip with GMMA last December and I felt compelled to continue serving as a vessel for God. GMMA is such a treasure and an amazing opportunity for other mission-minded and Christ-centered individuals to nurture their faith and work with a diverse group of professionals. I hope I will be able to continue to serve and am excited to see how GMMA will grow in the future.”

I want gmma to be more focused on outreach this year. outreach not only in missions abroad, but also within our UOP community- to ultimately see the lost be saved.”
