Committed to God’s calling Georgina Ortiz is passionate about the life-changing power of Jesus Christ and is set out and determined to share the Good News wherever God calls her. This hasn’t always been the case…
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. Georgina, however, would choose her own way and did not make an early commitment to Jesus Christ. Years of parting from God & making poor choices led to extremely challenging consequences for Georgina and her two children. Georgina worked in Hollywood until God lead her to quit her career to be a stay at home mom however…she wasn’t quite ready to give all the reigns up to God just quite yet.
After battling multiple divorces, several custody battles in court and living in guilt for years Georgina finally let go and let God take charge and realized that she would be much better off relinquishing the driver seat of her life to God! This time it was different! There was a liberation of guilt and shame with a whole new understanding of grace and mercy which allowed her to move forward in life without the chains holding her back from what she has always wanted to do…help other’s experience hope during their darkest times! Throughout her journey she survived many single mom’s worst nightmares—but while her faith in God may have been bruised, it wasn’t broken.
Georgina is a gifted international speaker with a compelling story to tell and God has shown her it is time for her to devote herself to sharing her story. Her passionate prayer is that each person come face-to-face with the love, grace and mercy of God. She recently turned her attention to the drastic decline in female happiness over the last 40 years (and what we can do about it).While she intertwines her real life experiences with some humor on the stage, her message comes from a very real and profound story that offers hope to those listening. Her transparency takes our breath away as she shares the real issues she—and many of us—deal with every day.
Georgina just returned from Nigeria where she spoke at multiple evangelistic crusades as well as several leadership conferences encouraging and equipping leaders to go out and share the Good News that has the power to transform lives eternally! Next she will travel to Venezuela in January. Her vision is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with thousands of people around the world so they can also experience the power that Jesus Christ has to transform us, to heal our past hurts and to start a new life in Him! She wants people to embrace the beautiful gifts of forgiveness of our sins, the gift of the Holy Spirit to empower life, and the assurance of heaven for eternity! Georgina is currently a student of the Luis Palau Bible Institute expanding her Biblical knowledge and is also a Proclamation Evangelist member of the Luis Palau Next Generation of Evangelist Alliance.

Matt Fore was born at an early age on October 26, 1958 in the small mountain village of Morristown Tennessee or it may have been somewhere up north. Anyway, for a while he was all pinkish and could barely see or speak. His hands were so small that he had to use bridge size playing cards to do a one handed cut and Hofzinger spread control because the standard blue backed Tally Ho poker cards were too big. He spent what seemed like months just lying around and drinking. Fifty some odd years later he is a professional magician, sleight of hand artist and entertainer with over twenty five years of experience having performed, in that time, for literally dozens of people.
Matt’s interest in trickery began when he was still very short. He had a very keen and alert brain and a very keen and alert brain as well as a brain that very alert and keen. Naturally he wanted to be a nuclear physicist but his parents encouraged him to be a sleight of hand artist. AGo where the money is@ they would say and they were right as today he earns, let=s just say, four figures. There is no doubt that he will someday be a world famous magician so if you book him now you will be able to say that you knew Matt Fore when he was absolutely nobody.
Matt currently lives in East Tennessee and spends much of his time on the road as the featured entertainer for many corporate functions, churchwide events, sports evangelism celebrations, banquets and conventions. He has performed throughout the Carribean on Carnival Cruise Lines and was an opening act for Crystal Gayle. He has appeared in a music video with Taylor Swift and has performed on several national TV Shows including the Crook & Chase show on TNN, Fox Sports and The Dennis Swanburg Show. He has also performed numerous times at the famed Magic Castle in Hollywood California.
But the list doesn’t stop there. Matt has also performed at Carnegie Hollister’s birthday party, The Grand Ole Opportunity House and Johnny Carson Smith’s Wholesale Pork and Packaging. He has also attended concerts by some very famous groups including Three Dog Night and The Marshall Tucker Band and has watched many famous television programs. He wears a size 11 shoe. Sometimes 10 1/2 depending on the brand because some brands are too narrow causing unnecessary discomfort and unexplainable facial expressions at the wrong time. Like when someone is telling a joke.

Marty Angelo worked in the entertainment business from 1965 to 1980 as a television producer, record promoter, disk jockey, restaurant/nightclub owner and personal manager for rock ‘n’ roll bands. He received his first professional breaks from the late guitar legend Jimi Hendrix and Beatle George Harrison.
Though at times Angelo thought he achieved success, internally he always felt emptiness in his heart, sensing his life had neither real meaning nor true purpose. Nothing ever seemed to matter to him. Therefore, he lived an out-of-control sin-riddled lifestyle.
Angelo was arrested in 1980 for two counts of possession of cocaine. Through this life-shattering event he experienced a “new beginning,” a dramatic and electrifying conversion to Christianity. This miracle happened in 1981 prior to serving two-and-a-half years in a federal prison. God forgave Marty’s sins, blessed him with eternal life and filled the void in Marty’s heart with His Holy Spirit. His life finally began to matter and it took on a new meaning as he discovered God’s true plan and purpose.
Angelo helped many prisoners during his incarceration explaining to them that if God can change his life He can change anybody… including hardened convicts, drunkards and drug addicts. Many followed his advice.
Marty was released from prison in 1984 and is living his life as an example to other ex-convicts and former drug-addicts and alcoholics who want to serve God and be used by Him for His glory.
For more than 25 years, Angelo has worked with various ministries such as; The Fort Lauderdale Rescue Tabernacle (Faith Farm), Teen Challenge of Southern California, Chuck Colson’s Prison Fellowship Ministries, and The Drug Abuse Foundation’s Palm Beach County.
Marty is currently a full-time minister to prisoners, substance abusers and troubled celebrities. His nationwide ministry reaches out to prisons & jails, rehabs & support groups, schools & churches and various celebrities.
Angelo’s 15 years in the entertainment industry has given him a special burden for today’s celebrities who are doing the same drugging, drinking and law breaking he did while living in the fast lane in the music business. No one warned Marty of the consequences of leading such a life nor offered him any alternative directions. He prays others will learn by his mistakes and seek a better life.
Marty believes as a Christian he has an obligation to encourage troubled celebrities and others to try a better road to travel; one that leads to everlasting peace, happiness and a new life that truly does matter. He donates his services to celebrities using letters, books, faith-based rehab referrals and court appearances.
Marty Angelo is the author of the books, “Once Life Matters: A New Beginning,” and “Vision of Jerusalem: Now!”

Greg S. Baker was raised in church all his life, and came to accept Jesus as his Saviour. He attended Hyles-Anderson College, graduating with a Bachelors’ degree in Pastoral Theology.
His writing passion pervades nearly every aspect of his life. As a child, he was an avid reader that fell in love with words and their ability to stir the imagination and convey ideas. While in High School, he attempted and completed his first novel only to see it rejected. Despite this setback, he turned his writing skills towards more productive means. It became a tool by which he conveyed his passion for his God and Saviour to the world around him. As a pastor, he uses his love for writing to bring to others his nearly twenty years of experience in the ministry, counseling marriages, and healing relationships.
Fitly Spoken is his first published work.
He is married to the love of his life, Liberty and has four incredible boys whom alternately remind him of the excitement of youth and the inevitability of the passage of time. He loves to play sports, chess, and tinker around with computers. Other than pastoring, his other duties include marriage counselor, chaplain for the sheriff’s office, and editor for the Christian Family Quarterly newspaper.
“Life is relationships,” he once explained. “It’s not your things, your possessions, or your money that make life valuable and important. It is your relationships. It is why I do what I do.”
