Christian Corrao

Hey! My name’s Christian. I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

The University of Southern Indiana! Let’s go SCREAGLES (Screaming Eagles)!!! 

My Story

My journey to FOCUS started in the Fall of 2018, my first semester at Ball State University. I joined a group of young men at the Catholic Newman Center led by a magnanimous priest through a program called Exodus 90. This program calls men to a radical return to reality through intense prayer, fasting, and chastity. This group consisted of men from all walks of life, including several FOCUS missionaries, whom I got to know very well. These men and this program were the first time I experienced true intimacy with Jesus Christ. That semester was a spring point for my journey to FOCUS. The Lord continued to call me deeper into relationship with Him and He was (and always is) WORKING.

I still wasn t fully convinced I was called to become a FOCUS missionary. God continued to nudge me through my relationship with my girlfriend (now fianc ) who is also a FOCUS missionary. She was a first year missionary while I was finishing my last year at Ball State. Through her witness to joyful sacrifice and passion for mission I found myself called to become a FOCUS missionary. During the interview process, I was debating joining FOCUS. I was completely unsure of myself and my decision. Through this internal conflict, I remember a FOCUS chaplain asking me: How can you be most generous to God?

Your Impact

I realized that becoming a FOCUS missionary was the way I could be most generous to the God Who is never surpassed in generosity. Through being generous with my life, I now have to rely on the generosity of others. It is a beautiful opportunity to share this mission with many wonderful people who support me. If you would like to support the mission God has called me to, please contact me and I will let you know how to join on mission!
