OUR MISSION & VISION

The Christian Medical Association at UVA exists to provide fellowship, encourage spiritual growth, and build authentic relationships both within the Christian community and the larger UVA medical community. Our desire is to serve and encourage both students and faculty and promote discussion on the intersection of faith and medicine. CMA is largely student-led and provides regular weekly meetings, Bible studies, and fellowship times. Other activities include an annual student retreat and occasional dinners with local physicians and residents.

Where We Go

Stewardship

Why Give to the UVA Chapter?

People who give financially to make our ministry possible tend to fall into two categories. They tend to either love us, or love what we do (It turns out there is some overlap)! I like to telll people that fundraising is not for the fainthearted, but God has been faithfull to provide what we need. Working with medical students, residents, faculty, and spouses is a great
privilege, and Linda and I are so very grateful for the opportunity we have been given to come alongside these folks over the last 25 plus years. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS MINISTRY POSSIBLE.
Lem and Linda Howard

Student Ministry

The CMDA student ministry at UVA is led by a team of second year students with the encouragement and support of Lem and Linda Howard (Area Directors, and surrogate parents!) The ministry exists to provide encouragement, support spiritual growth, and build authentic relationships both within the Christian community and the larger UVA medical community. Our desire is to serve and encourage both students and faculty and promote discussion on the intersection of faith and medicine through regular weekly meetings, Bible studies, and fellowship times (including the occasional hike or bike ride!) Other activities include an annual retreat and semi-monthly dinners with local physicians and residents.
