Joe Sclafani
Lead Pastor/Executive Director

Joe & Trish founded City Light Ministries in 1992. They have three grown children; Kyle (wife Lindsay), Ethan, and Zachary. They also have three grandchildren; Kamryn, Brady, and Joseph. Joe is a licensed and ordained minister with the Church of God, Cleveland, TN. When asked about his favorite trait of City Light, Joe responds: “I like that City Light picks up where the church leaves off. CLM is down in the trenches, meeting those marginalized by society, yet seeking hope in Jesus Christ.”

James “Sunny” Surita
Director of Homeless Ministries

Having been born and raised in New York City then living more than half of his life in Reading, Sunny has a unique urban perspective. Sunny has four grown children; James, Jay, Jackie and LaKreshia. A former Drill Instructor in the Marine Corps, Sunny is truly a motivator. When asked what he likes best about City Light he said,” I’ve been homeless, I know what it is like. But there is a difference between homeless and hopeless. Here at CLM our guys find hope.”

Angel Abreu
Children and Youth Director

At CLM, ministry to our youth is paramount to everything we do. We funnel all of our kids ministries through our main student outreaches; our After-school Program and our Summer Day Camp. This is a huge responsibility, and Angel is up to the task. When asked what motivates him to minister to our kids, Angel had this to say, “Growing up in a similar environment as many of the children and youth we serve, it was difficult to find a positive male role model. I believe I was placed here to lead by example, and to show that there is hope for something better in Christ.”
