TTM Partners With Northeast of the Well

On Tuesday, February 6, 2018, TTM Founder Anthony Miller met with Laura Suk, Founder, Pastor and Executive Director and Jennifer Sandoval, Operations/Area Coordinator at NorthEast of the well in Costa Mesa, CA.

Our talking points stemmed from the homeless population in Orange County, to compiling a viable plan that would address this major epidemic.

WHAT IS NORTHEAST OF THE WELL?

NorthEast of the Well exists to bring God’s Word into places of desperate need, with a focus on those in recovery and restoration. We aim to provide the opportunity and environment for people to have a life-changing encounter with Christ. We reach out locally, gather in community, and rise up in leadership.
