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.

Chris Beecher


My name is Chris Beecher and I am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. My wife's name is JoAnn, and we were married in 2003 and have four children—Joshua, Andrew, Elizabeth, and Olivia. I have been involved with church ministries and international missions for over a decade. Having served as a pastoral intern, pulpit supply preacher, adult education teacher, outreach coordinator, and a missionary to Indonesia, I take seriously Christ's command to make disciples of the nations (Matt. 28:18–20). I received my BA in Biblical Studies and my MA in Old Testament from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. I am presently pursuing PhD studies in the History of Biblical Interpretation at Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, OH. I delight in spending time with my family, taking walks with my wife, church fellowship and worship, going to the beach, drinking coffee, studying ancient languages, and reading ancient texts.
