Elders

Joseph LoSardo

A native of New York, Pastor LoSardo was saved by the grace of God in 1986 after hearing the Gospel from his brother, while pursuing a career in scientific research. He was ordained into the ministry in 1995 and served as the Associate Pastor of a large Messianic Congregation for over 8 years before planting Bread of Life Fellowship along with William Poss in July 2003. He and his wife and daughter live in Teaneck, NJ.

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. – Galatians 2:20

Damien Garofalo

Damien believed on Jesus during childhood and began preaching as a teenager. He pursued the ministry early on while God took him on a detour through teaching high school in private and public schools. He came to Bread of Life in 2009 and was ordained an elder in 2014. By God’s grace and wisdom, Damien is now blessed to lead the church planting endeavor in Kearny, where he resides with his wife Sara and children: Aidyn, Isaiah, Mikayla, and Jakoby.

The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. – 1 Timothy 1:15

Elias Adamo

Having immigrated to the States from the Middle East as a teenager, Elias was saved by the grace of God in his early 20’s from a life of sin by reading the scriptures. He finds it a great joy to serve God’s people as an elder. He also longs to see the gospel spreading and biblical churches established among the Arabic speaking here and abroad. He is blessed with a godly wife and 5 wonderful children.

For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. – Philippians 1:21

Jim was saved by God’s grace after his childhood friend Bill Poss explained the Gospel to him in 1990. Bill Poss went on to plant Bread of Life Fellowship with Pastor LoSardo and Jim joined them early on, serving alongside in the lay ministry as Chief Musician. He has also enjoyed teaching through Genesis at our weekly Bible studies, and Exodus monthly at our Sunday service. To God be the glory!
