What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth. They share it.
— C.S. Lewis

Matthew and Megan have been volunteering and working for Rivergate Church since 2000.  As an Associate Minister, Matt also manages Matthew Ortega Design. Megan has a heart for worship and mommy ministries. She is an ER nurse, super mom, and blogger.  Their eyes locked across the crowded choir loft 13 years ago (when we still had a choir loft) and they were the only two people in the choir under 50. It took eight short years for them to fall in love and get married.  They married each other New Years Day 2009 and are now raising 3 beautiful children, IV,CS, and BO. The Ortegas have been serving in both lay and full time ministry together ever since. Ordained under Rivergate Ministries International, they have a passion for God’s love to be manifest through their marriage and family, and laughter is their secret.

Recently their new ministry "Freedom Prayer Brazos Valley" has launched and focuses on allowing prayer to identify and address things hindering a deeper personal relationship with God.
