Laura Suk

Founder & Executive Director

Thank you for taking the time to see what NorthEast of the Well is all about. Our ministry began by going out into places where people desperately need to hear of God’s grace. Through our various events during the week, that continues to be our goal. We don’t wait for them to come to us, but we first reach out to them. 

We exist to serve the neglected, the addicted, the poor – those who live “unseen” among us. At NorthEast of the Well, we aim to find people where they’re at - in their current state, space and situation. We step outside, we seek them out, and we speak with hope. We do this by entering into county programs, recovery centers, jails, and more. We introduce them to the person and Savior of Jesus Christ. Our prayer for each life is that they would find purpose and wholeness in the God who created them for good.

Throughout the week, there are so many ways to volunteer, give, join in, and serve alongside us.  We are currently ministering in 5 local areas:  Long Beach, Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Tustin, and Newport ... and God is constantly opening more doors.

It’s our desire to partner with other like-minded ministries and churches in our work. We provide an access point to encounter people you may never otherwise get the privilege to serve. You will change lives – and you too will be changed. 

At NorthEast of the Well, we recognize that the pattern of sin and brokenness is often passed down from generation to generation - but so is the impact of God’s grace. We believe the bondage CAN be broken, and lives and families CAN be set free! We see this, every day.
