Through GMMA, God has shown me how consistent and overwhelming His love is. I initially joined GMMA because I knew that I have a passion for serving others. And through this community, He made it clear for me that He gave me a heart for sharing His love and grace. He has also blessed me with brothers and sisters who come together for the same purpose—working for Christ and caring for one another. Building Christ-centered relationships and praising the kingdom of God through GMMA has been one of my biggest joys and blessings in college. The welcoming and loving environment of GMMA has allowed me to reflect on my faith and become more intimate with God. I am excited to see where God will take us through the organization in the future!
GMMA has helped me rediscover my passion for God. Coming into college, I decided that I had a chance to turn over a new leaf, to leave behind the lukewarm Christian that I was in high school. GMMA was one of the first Christian organizations I found after coming onto campus, and it has been an amazing experience since. When I think about what GMMA means to me, I immediately think of community. It is incredible to see the positivity, the support, and the love that is present between the members of this organization, and this environment has really allowed for me to grow spiritually and to draw closer to God. I had also never gone on a mission trip before college, and GMMA provided me the opportunity to truly go out and serve Him in ways I never would have imagined, to be a worker in the field. GMMA has helped me immensely in my spiritual journey, and I am excited to be able to help GMMA this year as well.
Living for God every day comes with its difficulties and struggles, especially for me. With a weak spirit, I originally came to GMMA to satisfy my desire for an organization that would help with gaining medical experience. However, in GMMA, I found a community that continuously reminds me of our true goal: to always live for Christ. Through prayer, service, and a caring family, GMMA has helped me grow in my faith, accept my shortcomings, and witness the beautiful balance between faith and healthcare. Through the hardships of life, we will keep moving forward on the path God has set for us. I look forward to seeing what He has in store for GMMA!
To me, GMMA is all about community. Through GMMA, I have not only shared core memories with the loving brothers and sisters God has planted around me, but also experienced how God works and shares his love to those beyond our circles. The welcoming environment that strives to build healthy, Christ-centered relationships has been one of the biggest blessings to me as it is evident how God shapes each one of our hearts to be better Christians daily. I have seen how GMMA is driven by the Great Commission, and I am excited to see how He utilizes each individual in this one community to serve the audience of One.
I am not sure if it’s because GMMA is the first school organization I joined at UT Austin but GMMA feels like my family on campus. When I heard about the mission statement and the thought that I could one day serve in mission trips, it instantly made me want to join GMMA. I met my closest friends and mentors who share common goals and interests at GMMA. Although I attend my local church on Sundays, general meetings and prayer meeting once a week remind me that He is always with me whenever I feel down during the school week. Most importantly, GMMA taught me how to receive His unconditional love through the community and provided me the ways to give back those love.
PR & Volunteer Coordinator
The biggest struggle for me as a Christian has always been finding community – a place to belong in and a group to open up to. I was doubtful of God as I entered college and expected nothing, yet GMMA blessed me with everything and so much more. God poured out His overflowing care on me through GMMA and has purposefully placed people in my life who I know will remain by my side just as He has and always will – mentors who continually motivate me to pursue the beautiful work of Christ-centered medical care, friends who I’ve never felt more loved and accepted by, and brothers and sisters who I can clearly see Him in and faithfully serve Him with. GMMA for me is family, and I hope that one day it will be for you as well.
Prayer & Social Coordinator
I came into college with the premise that I would separate church and school, faith and career, daily life and mission. GMMA showed me that these things were not to be mutually exclusive, but rather coexist in day-to-day action and life. GMMA surrounded me with not just Christians, but hard-working Christians at the top of their class. It surrounded me with not just other Pre-Med students, but Pre-Med students with a love and zeal for God and loving His children. It didn’t just surround me with like minded people career-wise, but like-minded people in view of eternity. I am excited to see how God will continue to work in us and through us this year!
