CMDA Cincinnati exists to encourage, strengthen, and equip healthcare professionals to: live out the character of Christ in their homes, workplaces, communities, and around the world; cultivate communities to reach, mentor, and partner with healthcare professionals; pursue professional excellence and compassion through Christ-centered care; and provide spaces of dialogue to address relevant healthcare issues.

How We Grow


The medical students meet regularly for Bible study during the school year as well as for special events.

We offer regular virtual devotionals and small groups for physicians wanting to learn how to integrate their faith in their practice.

Events | Conferences:

We regularly attend the Global Health and Missions Conference in Louisville, KY in the fall. Each year, we host a nationally or internationally renown speaker. Some past speakers have included Eric Metaxas, N.T. Wright, Vince and Jo Vitale and Jennifer Wiseman.

Where We Go


Where We Serve:

Some local physicians travel internationally for medical missions and invite students to join when appropriate.

Both local and global missions are areas we would like to expand. If you are interested in coordinating a local service opportunity or global medical missions trip, please let Connor know.​​​​​​​


Why Give to the Cincinnati Chapter?

Giving to CMDA Cincinnati enables us to continue our ministry among medical school students and local healthcare workers. With your donations, we purchase resources to equip and disciple medical school students, host speakers that address relevant topics for both students and local healthcare workers, and provide the associate director's salary.

Connor Ham


My name is Connor Ham and I stepped into this role of associate staff for CMDA Cincinnati in January 2021.
I am from Defiance, Ohio, where I grew up and gave my life to Christ. Discerning a call to ministry while in high school, I moved to Chicago and attended Moody Bible Institute for four years, graduating with my BA in Biblical Languages (ie, Hebrew and Greek) in 2018. I then moved to Belgium where I worked on my MA in Theology and Religious Studies at KU Leuven, which I completed in the summer of 2020. I then moved back to Ohio and began my PhD work here in Cincinnati in August of 2020 at Hebrew Union College, studying ancient Christian and Jewish literature.
I gave my life to Christ at the age of 15 and started a Bible study group in my public high school a few years later. I also became heavily involved with my area’s Youth for Christ chapter and helped to organize several gospel “crusades” in 2013 and 2014. While at Moody, I became involved with on-campus mens’ ministries and was appointed to the executive committee for mens’ ministries during my senior year. Today I am also involved in young adult ministry at Kenwood Baptist Church.
In sum, I have always had a dual interest in ministry and the academy, making me very excited about ministry to graduate students through CMDA here in Cincinnati!
