Senior Pastor Joseph Arminio


Baseball player, major league tryout participant, powerlifter, bodybuilder, manager of one of the highest profit producing health spas in the country, Joe Arminio had it all.  A prestigious job, money, fast cars, wild living, and success—everything the culture says you need to be happy; but he still was void of peace, full of rage and empty on the inside.  Until one Monday evening, February 23, 1978, driving his brown Firebird down the New Jersey Garden State Parkway, by exit 150 at 9:10 pm, Joe had an encounter that would change his life from that moment and forever.  The light of Jesus Christ crashed into his darkness.  He was introduced to the Son of God, radically transformed and instantly delivered from rage, riotous living, and routine religion.  Jesus Christ ignited a fire in Joe and the journey began.  Today, Joe is the Senior Pastor and founder of Abundant Life Whippany in New Jersey, Executive Director and Overseer of Renovation House (a drug and alcohol rehabilitation for men), Executive Director of Renovation House for Women, Chancellor of Abundant Life Christian School (K4-12th Grade), Founder of Abundant Life Bible Institute Ministry Training Center, Founder and CEO of ROC (Recreational Outreach Center) Gym, Founder and CEO of Kings Kids Day Care Center for infant children to PreK3, Executive Overseer of Abundant Life Ministries International, church planter, author, husband, father and grandfather.  Only Jesus can transform someone from death to life, darkness to light, bondage to freedom.  To God be all the glory, great things He has done.
