Rosemarie Nieves, Head Secretary
Rosemarie manages the day-to-day operations of the church office, and we can't imagine where we'd be without her. From finances to email reminders to that always-just-vacuumed rug, she organizes all the often overlooked details to ensure that our behind the scenes operations run smoothly.
If you're looking for information on any of our church services or programs, please call Rosemarie at (973) 694-9998.
Dave Corn, Youth Director
Dave was a youth leader for eight years before becoming director in 2014. He, along with his wife Danielle, oversees all services and events for our Resurrection Youth Group (ages 13-18). With a heart for servanthood and a belief in the mighty power of prayer, Dave is leading our youth group on a crusade to speak life into a dead world and resurrect teens as disciples of Christ. Youth services are held once a month on Sundays during regular service and events (including trips to the city & down the shore, weekend retreats, scavenger hunts and flash mobs of prayer) are held 1-3 times a month. Please see the church calendar for specific dates.
AnneMarie Cornetto, Children's Ministry Director
Anne Marie was a children's ministry teacher for six years before she became director in 2003. She oversees all five kid's church classes, recruits teachers and helpers, orchestrates the curriculum and plans special events. Anne Marie is best known for her color coding abilities, board game mastery (if it wasn't obvious) and love of football (we won't say which team ... but it's not the Giants). For information about kid's church services/events or if you're interested in becoming a kid's church teacher/helper, please see Anne Marie.
Dave & Lisa Sylvester, Elders
Dave and Lisa have been faithfully serving as elders since 2008. Dave oversees the Men's Ministry, bravely leads the "Million Man" Father's Day choir each year and can be spotted wearing patriotic clothing for any occasion.

They lead the Montville home group bible study and have two adult children, Lauren and Carly.
Peter & Bernadette Orsita, Elders
Peter and Bernadette's testimonies are perfect reflections of God's love and grace. They joined LPALWC back in 1995 and have been elders since 2008. Peter is an original choir member and is best known for his world famous pepperoni bread. He also dedicates his time to ministering to the men at Renovation House, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. Bernadette coordinates our church cleaning and greeting ministries, and is best known for never making it into the choir (despite countless attempts). They lead the Haskell home group bible study and keep busy with three grandchildren: Isaiah, Joshua and Caleb.
Dominick & Linette Cicerchia, Elders
Dominick has been attending LPAWLC since he was 17 and had much longer hair. Here he met his wife Linette and together they became elders in 2008 and spearheaded our youth ministry for 15 years until 2014. Dominick now leads the Wyckoff home group bible study focused on 30-40 year olds, and is best known for dressing up as Elf on Ugly Christmas Sweater Sunday. Linette ministers as one of our head worship leaders. They have three children: Emily, Olivia and Dominick Jr.
Our vision here is simple: To introduce Jesus in a personal way to those who don't really know him... to kindle the fire of relationship to those that do know him... and to bring everyone to a greater awareness that we have a father that loves us and wants to spend time with us.
