Leanne Corena – Missionary with Team El Salvador
Leanne joined our team full-time in September 2017. She spent a year in El Salvador with us during 2015 and was a HUGE blessing working as the secretary in our Christian school, all while serving full-time in the church and seminary ministries. She has a heart for God and a heart to serve. Within the year she was here, she saw several young ladies saved, baptized, and discipled. We know that God is going to use her in marvelous ways as she continues to serve with us in Cojutepeque.
Leanne was raised in Lancaster, California. She was saved and baptized through Lancaster Baptist Church. At 16, the Lord called her to full-time ministry. While completing her last year at West Coast Baptist College, she surrendered her life to missions during a missions conference. After seeking counsel from her Spanish Pastor at that time, Carlos Navarrete, the Lord directed her to serve in Cojutepeque, El Salvador to intern for a year in 2015.
After having served faithfully during that year, the Lord led her back to Lancaster. There she had the privilege of working on staff as an administrative assistant at Lancaster Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor Paul Chappell and Pastor Carlos Navarrete. The Lord prepared and equipped her through her experience at these ministries.
While Leanne worked on staff at Lancaster Baptist, her heart remained for the people in Cojutepeque and she prayed fervently for God’s leading. The Lord led her back to El Salvador in September 2017, as a single missionary. As Leanne continued to joyfully serve the Lord, in 2020 the Lord blessed her with a wonderful man, Denis Corena, a faithful and godly man on our staff, who was raised and discipled in our church.
On January 22, 2022, Denis and Leanne were married in our church. They have since been blessed with a sweet baby girl, Chloe. Now as a family, they are faithfully serving the Lord full-time and investing their love in the lives of our people at Iglesia Bautista Emanuel, reaching people with the gospel.
