Brian Ortiz

Youth Elder

With a longstanding family history in First Presbyterian Church of Santa Fe, Brian has grown up in the church and holds FPCSF central to his life.  Brian actively participates in FPCSF’s The Youth Connection, has a quick smile, and is always eager to help despite the task. “One of my life’s aspirations is to be happy with whatever comes my way,” he said. It’s that kind of positive outlook that helped Brian achieve a Kenpo 5.0 martial arts black belt at the children’s level while in elementary school, and a second-degree brown belt at the adult level. “I plan to be a black belt in two years,” he confidently said.
