Alexandra Hosack- Chair

Why GUP?

I love GUP because of its mission to serve a population close to God's heart. My time in London truly gave me a new perspective of how we can love our brothers and sisters of different religions, races, and backgrounds. Plus GUP is the best!

Steven Kwon- Fundraising Coordinator

Why GUP?

I've enjoyed the things I learned through orientation. I've been so humbled by the constant emphasis on being with the community rather than always focusing on the service in our sites. In a place like Wheaton where there is so much pressure on doing things, GUP has really helped to process why I'm doing what I'm doing, rather than merely doing it. + Dra is the coolest person in the world!

It bothers me when...:

I'm about to sleep but my whole body is itchy

Leela Kim- Placement/Travel Coordinator

Without a doubt, my summer doing GUP was one of the most formative summers for me. I love GUP and the opportunity it gives us to partner with God's heart for the city. Plus I love my cabinet.

Adeline Ng - Orientation Coordinator

Why GUP?

Though I've lived in an urban context my whole life, I was unfamiliar with urban issues. Coming into college, I learned about them. I want to give other people the opportunity to learn about them and to be more aware of these issues too.

Brady Woods- Campus Programs Coordinator

Why GUP?

In an increasingly urban world, Christians ought to be concerned with how to live as citizens of the city of God in the context of the city here and now. GUP is uniquely situated as a ministry to teach us how to love God and others while in both cities. + Dra, the awesomest person in the world!

Words to live by:

Love God with all you are and become, and love others as yourself.

Craziest thing I've ever done:

learn how to grow a garden well

It bothers me when...

I am asked what bothers me
