Saved by His Grace

I grew up in Adrian, Michigan. When I was just a small child, my parents divorced, and I lived with my dad. I don’t recall ever going to church, and as a teen I chose to live without direction or proper standards. Through a series of poor choices, I became very rebellious and, at the age of nineteen, found myself making going downhill quickly.  I met some nice folks from Berean Baptist Church and they shared the Gospel with me. Upon hearing the Gospel for the first time in my life, I readily accepted Christ as Saviour on February 28, 1990. I spent the next two years getting to know the Lord. Daily I spent hours upon hours in prayer and Bible reading. I became a student of the Bible and had an unquenchable desire to grow. I witnessed to the others around me the best I knew how.

In the spring of 1991, I received some preaching tapes that God used to call me into the ministry. They were all by the same pastor, except one. That particular tape was by Dr. Jack Hyles. It was through this tape that God called me to preach. I was rebellious and told God that He couldn’t use me, because I had messed up my life too much. But God was at work in my life.

In January of 1992, I began attending Berean Baptist Church pastored by Dr. Mike Cox. I was baptized soon after that. God was still at work. I knew He wanted to use me, but I didn’t think I was a qualified candidate. I sought counsel from Dr. Cox and an assistant pastor. They assured me that God could use anyone He chose, and that “if God wants you to do something, the best thing to do is to just go ahead and do it.” I surrendered to God’s will for my life and made preparation to move to Northwest Indiana to attend Hyles-Anderson College.

I met my wife Robyn in 1989; we were high school sweethearts. Dr. Cox’s wife led her to the Lord on February 28, 1990. We were married September 4, 1992. Soon after, we were expecting our first child, due the following September.

In December of 1993, my wife, my three-month-old son, and I packed up a truck and moved to Indiana. I still didn’t know in what capacity God wanted me to serve. God began to plant the seed of missions in my heart, and I watered it with prayer. That seed began to grow. God was directing us towards missions. During a mission conference held at the college, God confirmed that call to missions in my life. I went forward that Sunday and surrendered to give my life to reach the world with the Gospel.

I started full-time deputation January 8, 2003, and graduated from Hyles-Anderson College on January 29, 2003, with a bachelor of science in pastoral theology. I was ordained into the Gospel ministry on October 18, 2003. On November 29, 2005, we left for Ireland to start the Anchor Baptist Church. After turning this work over to another man, God directed me to start a new Bible study in another part of the country. God also opened several doors to help other churches and ministries get started. We have had the privilege to minister throughout the country, as well as in several places throughout Europe. We are honored to have had these opportunities in the past and are excited for further opportunities to serve Him in the future.

After 13 years or being a full time missionary to Ireland, the door began to close due to changing immigration laws.  However, when God closes one door, He always opens another.  In August of 2016 I sought counsel to serve full time with a ministry called Wings Bearing Precious Seed.  WBPS is a Worldwide Scripture Distribution ministry.  As of January 2017, I have served with Wings and have had the privilege to have a part in sending millions of Scripture portions throughout the world as well as serve on several mission trips to help missionaries on the field.

Elias and Robyn Correa Prayer Letter: Miles 4 Missions Fundraising Event!

Elias and Robyn Correa Prayer Letter: Miles 4 Missions Fundraising Event!Praise the Lord! It’s that time again—Our Miles 4 Missions Fundraising Event!

If you remember back in 2019, my wife Robyn and I committed to riding our bicycles across the entire state of Michigan to raise funds for missions. We had never done anything like this before; and, honestly, we were a bit nervous about it. However, the Lord blessed, and we were able to raise over $5,000 for missions during this event! Robyn and I both successfully exceeded our goal of riding 300 miles by completing the ride across the entire state and riding 303 miles!

What happened in 2020 and 2021? COVID restrictions within the state of Michigan did not allow for this event to take place. We have been praying that the restrictions would lighten up for 2022. We are excited that we are now able to move forward with the fundraising event this year! Will you please consider helping us by sponsoring us in this missions fundraiser?

June 18-24, 2022, my wife Robyn and I have scheduled a BIKE-A-THON as a fundraising event for an upcoming Wings Bearing Precious Seed shipment of Scriptures to Europe. We are seeking sponsors to make a one-time, flat-amount pledge (or love offering) as we cycle across the entire state of Michigan. Our goal is to pedal each and every mile from Whitehall, Michigan, to Harbor Beach, Michigan, over a six-day period. We have preplanned stops along the way, where we will tent camp for the night and also visit three churches for Sunday and Wednesday services. We, Lord willing, will average cycling 50 miles per day.

Robyn and I would so appreciate it if your church would consider sending a one-time, flat donation. Donations can be made online at Miles 4 Missions or by contacting me at the number below to mail it to our mission board or to our sending church in Adrian, Michigan. Funds will be sent directly to Wings Bearing Precious Seed for an upcoming shipment of Scriptures to Europe.

If you would like to have a part in sponsoring our Miles 4 Missions (special fundraiser) Bike-a-Thon and you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (517) 270-2831. Thank you for your consideration in helping us to help the cause of Christ by supporting this missions fundraising project through prayer and/or sponsorship!

Saved to serve Him,
