Georgina was the youngest of four children raised in a loving Christian home, daughter of International Evangelical Speaker & Author Dr. Juan Carlos Ortiz, niece of world renowned Evangelist Luis Palau and Ed Silvoso & raised among prominent ministry leaders. She was a devout follower of Christ until the tragic death of her brother. Blaming God for his death, at 21 years of age she turned her back on the Lord and rebelled against the church. After several years of making an absolute mess out of her life, she repented and recommitted her life to Christ. Having experienced abundant love, grace and radical regeneration of her soul, she is passionate about the life-changing power of Jesus Christ and cannot stay quiet about it! She now lives to tell others about the powerful name of Jesus!
Georgina has shared the Gospel and spoken at conferences/events/churches in the US, Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Venezuela, Haití, Africa, throughout Europe and also South America. During her travels she also trains, encourages and equips ministry leaders and volunteers on how to effectively share the Gospel to reach others for Christ. She often speaks at Women’s events (retreats, luncheons, conferences, etc.) where her goal is to inspire women to fully step into God’s purposes for their lives. She focuses on relevant topics women are faced with today and addresses them with Christ centered Biblical teachings. She shares how to live out Biblical Principles in practical spiritual ways in order for others to grow in their relationship with Christ and be a witness to others. Georgina loves to raise up Christians in the Gospel as the Holy Spirit applies the Scriptures to their hearts and minds. She is bi-lingual in Spanish and English which allows her the opportunity to work with Hispanics all over the world.
I've been blessed to be a part of Saddleback Church since 2005. Our church has inspired me and dared me to live on purpose. Pastor Rick is continuously stretching my faith to do more for God's Kingdom. Our "Decade of Destiny" campaign radically changed my life and confirmed I was to leave the business world and go into Ministry full time.
I have an immense love for dogs. Always have! Meet Dooley... he pretty much runs the household. He keeps me active, playful and is a fountain of endless love!
ENCOURAGING & EMPOWERING WOMEN
Everyone needs a "go to person" that loves the Lord with all their heart, accepts the messy you, holds your hand when needed, prays for you and loves you unconditionally. My sister is the only person I know that will have 12 hour luncheons to catch up with me (and the only reason we leave is because the restaurant has to close at some point). NOT KIDDING! She's been there for me through thick and thin and is my best friend! When we're together, our husbands already know not to file a missing persons report because our time together is priceless.
I can't say enough about the blessing and
example my parents have been in my life. They have been the truest servants of God I have ever witnessed and I thank the Lord for placing me under their care. In December of 2021 God called my father home to live in eternity with Him. We miss him greatly.
This is us! Normal (what is normal anyway?)
every day people walking this journey together. My family is the love of my life! I am blessed with the privilege of being a wife, a mother and a GRANDMOTHER to these beautiful people! I consider my family the biggest earthly blessing's of them all!
My husband is Jeremy. He is my rock!
My son Robbie + his wife Ashley = Levi & Ava.
My daughter Kelsie + her hubby Mason =
Paisley & Jaxson.
I lean on the adventurous side. I LOVE to talk, laugh and socialize. Working out with hubby is one of my favorite daily things to do besides walking, hiking, skiing and running with my dog. I also love to travel as I'm fascinated by people and different cultures. I believe that is where I learn the most. I have a bit of a competitive edge which is one of the main reasons I dared to bungee jump (pic on left) because my hubby didn't think I would! LOVE LOVE LOVE TO READ!
