Pastor Daniel Ortiz

Wave Ministries International
Columbus, Ohio, United States

What is the main focus of your activities today?
We minister and serve all over the world in teaching a holistic message, that God desires to have a relationship with humanity and He wants to be involved in all aspects of our lives, spirit, soul and body.

How long have you been doing that?
I have been in full time ministry for 25 years.

What are some of the successful related programs or projects that you have done this year and in past years?
I am the Pastor of Wave Ministries International, I have a co- working space in Columbus Ohio , I am a part owner of Yeshiva for the nations, I am a part owner of 22 ventures , I am on the board of Latino Coalition for Isreal, I host a podcast called Wave Podcast and I co-host a podcast with Rabbi Tuly called Holy Talk

How did you get to where you are today?
I believe the hand of God is on my life and He has guided me all the way but I would not be here first without a praying mother, my beautiful wife, amazing three daughters, and my mentors and friends

What is your “testimony”?
I was born in the South Bronx, NYC. I had a blood disease called ITP that had me in an incubator until I was three years old. I was in and out of the hospital until I was eight years old. My mother took me to an all night prayer meeting when I was ten years old, that night I found Jesus and I was totally healed of this horrible disease. I then lived a hard life in the Bronx but God kept me from danger. At the age of fourteen I preached my first sermon, and from there I graduated High School and went to seminary school. I began traveling the world preaching, and God allowed me to arrive in Israel. My life was changed once again and I knew that I was called to be a bridge between Christians and Jews.

What do you think God is doing with regard to Jewish-Christian relations?
We are living in the greatest time in history. God is awakening the hearts of Christians and Jews to walk side by side as brothers and sisters . We are not to change one another but to embrace each other as God’s children. We are walking in the power of unity as we display the diverse family of God.
