About the Keynote Speaker:
Lynn Ortel is eager to return to the warm and welcoming from the women of NNEC as presenter for its annual Women's Ministries retreat. She is honored to accept this invitation.Although Lynn was a
registered nurse, she chose to be a stay-at-home-Mom until their three children outgrew homeschooling and went to traditional school. For about eight years, she cared for three developmentally disabled women in their home, 24-7. In later years she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Counseling degree and became a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.Lynn has served the Adventist Church as Conference Communications Director and Director of Family Ministries, Women's Ministries and Children's Ministries. She enjoyed being Conference Ministerial Spouses Association Leader, encouraging and enriching the wives of the pastors. She currently is serving the Arizona Conference as Women's Ministries Director.Lynn is married to the wonderful Mike Ortel. Their three married adult children have given them six grandchildren. Five live on the east coast, which means lots of flights for birthdays, holidays and special events! She is Nanny-Granny to five year old Davy, who lives nearby.Lynn has a passion to experience the real and relevant God. Her life's mission statement is “to live a life of love.” (Ephesians 5:1, 2) She has traveled across America and overseas sharing about this God who makes a difference in our lives. She is looking forward to being at our retreat, presenting a motivational talk she hopes will energize and encourage your heart. God specializes in taking ordinary people and empowering them to live extraordinary lives. How can we not fall in love with God, after all he has done for us.
