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, Joseph, and Macklin. 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.”
