Vice President: Arlo Shen

Hello my name is Arlo Shen. I am a 5th year studying Aerospace Engineering, and I am the Missions Coordinator. I am not on a Pre-Health track nor do I plan on pursuing a field in medicine, but I have a passion for Global Missions and seeing how God can move in the lives of people everywhere in the world. My vision for this chapter is for our members to recognize that God is eager to use us for what He has planned regardless of who we are and where we’re at. I also hope that this GMMA chapters can be a community that really exemplifies a family and that the relationships we build with God and one another are intentional and intimate. My goal as the Vice president and External missions coordinator is to improve communication between our members to promote efficiency in what we do and better foster a community. I am excited to see how God will use GMMA to accomplish His kingdom work!
