Hi.

We’re the Ortegas.

We met back in 2004 In Costa Rica during a six month DTS (Discipleship Training School) with YWAM (Youth With A Mission.) Our team traveled to India and Holland together and we fell in love. 

We were married in 2005 and a few months later we moved to Chile as missionaries. Although our plan was to do long term missions in South America, the Lord put it on our hearts to serve the local church in the Inland Empire of California.

We moved to California in the summer of 2007 and became the pastors of a local church in San Bernardino. In November, 2009 our daughter, Talia was born and in April 2012 we welcomed our son, Liam.

After six years of pastoring we felt that God was calling us to move to the central coast to work with YWAM as full time missionaries.

In the summer of 2013 we packed up our belongings and moved to Pismo Beach, California. What an adventure it has been for our little family!

We are passionate about raising up leadership, bridging local churches to the mission field and training and sending out students to the nations.




























ABOUT US

ABOUT YWAM

PARTNERSHIP

Founded in 1960, YWAM is now one of the world’s largest interdenominational Christian ministries, with 18,000 full-time, volunteer missionaries based in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries worldwide.


Youth With A Mission draws people from a variety of backgrounds to work in a vast spectrum of evangelistic activities. Young people, families, retired persons, recent high school graduates and Ph.D’s are among our ranks. People from over one hundred nations and many denominations are included, from the new babes in Christ to church leaders and missionaries with many years of experience.


YWAM embraces three methods of action - ways which we believe God has given us to be a part of the goal of taking the gospel to all the world:

Evangelism - spreading God’s message

Training - preparing workers to reach others

Mercy Ministries - showing God’s love through practical assistance

Prayer

We believe that prayer support is crucial for our ministry. We would love to have you partner with us by committing to pray for us on a regular basis.


Financial Support


As full time missionaries with YWAM we rely on a relationship-based support system, depending on God and his people for financial provision.
