GMMA to me is passion. Being part of GMMA has challenged me to explore what living with a mission looks like. It has given me a vision to see all people live missionally and a passion to see the vision come to reality. Being around people and a community who have the same drive to live missionally has increased my passion and love for God and for furthering His kingdom.
GMMA to me is a training ground. I have always had numerous questions in regards to how I should go about missions. But, through weekly meetings, volunteering, and fellowship, I’ve learned that missions is a lifestyle. No matter where we are or what we are doing, we are called to serve His people with a servant-like heart.

If I were to describe what GMMA was to me in one word, it would be ‘healing.’ Throughout the past year, I’ve gone through many painful situations in which I lost the ability to see God’s goodness throughout it all. However, through GMMA, I was refreshed and my outlook on life was renewed by the people around me. GMMA is a medical mission trip in which we are sent to places around the world to bring both physical and spiritual healing. What I didn’t expect is that through being a part of it, I was healed as well. The paralyzed man whose friends brought to Jesus through the roof so that he could be healed and be able to walk again—I see him in myself. Through the friends and community I’ve made in GMMA, I was able to be brought back to Jesus and to continue to walk in Him.
External Missions Coordinator
GMMA to me is a humbling experience; it serves as a reminder that God is and should be in control of everything and anything that I do. As I began to delve deeper into this spiritual movement, I not only grew in passion to serve His people in both local and global communities, but also learned how to live out a missional life for God. GMMA has given me a vision and a perspective on how faith can be incorporated into one’s career–whatever that may be. And, it has taught me that everything needs to start, continue, and finish in prayer.
Welcome to Global Medical Missions Alliance @ UT Dallas!
The UT Dallas GMMA chapter was started in 2018 through the guidance of Dr. Yongsik Kim and Dr. Peter Chung. Our vision is to see students interested in healthcare develop a heart to lead a missional life wherever they go. We hope to do this through:
- equipping students with a holistic view on care as seen through short-term medical mission opportunities
- offering meaningful, impactful and consistent volunteering opportunities
- connecting students with their peers and Christian mentors who encourage missional living in each other’s daily life
Ultimately, we want to be a witnessing community, sharing the love of God together as a community.
