Bishop Bruno founded ALA in 1986 and believes strongly in Christian education. He provides the vision, guidance, and support the school needs. The students love his visits and can always see him seated in the front row enjoying concerts and programs.
Abundant Life Academy is a private, inter-denominational, Christian School housed on the Abundant Life Worship Center campus in Nutley, NJ. As a ministry of NALWC, ALA’s mission is to achieve academic excellence while sharing God’s love with children and their families. Abundant Life Academy is a school you can trust to educate your child. A parent’s decision to enroll their child at ALA creates a partnership and this partnership of parents and staff establishes an unbreakable bond of love and safety for our children. Our academy begins with pre-kindergarten for 3 & 4 year olds and continues through grade 12. Equal emphasis is placed on all four levels: Pre-kindergarten, Elementary, Middle School and High School. ALA does not recruit high school students. Only those who meet admissions requirements, can proceed to the high school program.

This ministry partners with families to develop a strong spiritual and moral foundation in children enabling them to experience and reflect God in every area of their lives. A Great Place to have fun and learn God’s Word through fun Bible lessons and games that ensure them that they are not insignificant but an integral part of the Kingdom of God and that Jesus encourages all children to come unto Him.
This mandate is to uphold Bishop and Sister Bruno and the overall Ministries; to stand in the gap and make up the hedge of prayer that will protect and propel the work of the Lord in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our heart is to see believers empowered and motivated to pray effectually and fervently.

Our Master’s Men’s Ministry is specifically designed to meet the many needs of the men in our church. To encourage the men of this church to grow in their spiritual relationship with the Lord and reach their full potential in Christ while developing, as men of God in relation with their wives, children, families and communities. As men, we also need to take time to help those who are in need like the widows, single mothers, young men and the elderly to make sure that their needs are being met and that they are being lifted up in prayer. It’s a ministry of fellowship, comradery and fun.
The Music Ministry of NALWC, the modern day Levites, set apart and sanctified for His service, desire to worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth. We look to lift up the name of Jesus and set an atmosphere for corporate praise with psalms, hymns, spiritual songs, and intimate, holy worship to the Lord so all who enter will experience His manifest presence and supernatural glory. The music ministry continues to passionately pursue Jesus with a spirit of excellence as they grow in their sensitivity to the Holy Spirit and enjoy the glory of His goodness. In addition to serving our church family at every service, we have a burden to proclaim freedom and liberty to the captives and bring the “good news” to those outside the church through evangelistic outreaches. We enjoy uniting all the choirs during the Christmas season to share the love of Jesus and minister salvation and healing to the lost and broken.

The department is comprised of young children, youth, and adult men and women. The goal of Shabach is proclaim boldly to generations that He alone is worthy of all praise!
It is our prayer that the visual component of the arts would enable the believer and unbeliever to "see" that truly God is in this place and that His presence is real; so real that it would cause all of us to fall on our faces and worship Him. I Corinthians 14:24-2
The "artists" work under the leading of the worship leaders and the flow of the Holy Spirit. Members of the team seek to glorify Him through spontaneous worship; as well as minister choreographed pieces for special church events.
This ministry honors the “Siblings” of children with special needs knowing their individual struggles, stresses and sacrifices made by them for the special needs child. We honor, support and encourage these unique care givers while recognizing the distinctiveness of their own “special needs”.

We help build a bridge of Hope through faith in God that leads to a greater peace and joy.

Every Friday night we’re finding our reason for being in Christ and experiencing a positive alternative to the destructive behavior of this world like drugs, alcohol, addictions, that are claiming so many of our peers. Through music, skits, videos, dance and practical teachings, people our own age are expressing themselves and also learning the truth in a way we can all understand. If you are look for a reason for being in this world, then come out on Friday nights at 7:30 p.m. The answers are closer than you think.
This is a two-fold ministry. First, to minister to our precious babies by meeting their physical needs and to lovingly nurture, cuddle, pray over, and sing to them. Secondly, our ministry is to be a blessing to the parents by providing them the opportunity to enjoy two quiet services a week without having to worry about their children. While we are changing diapers, wiping noses, and tying shoes, mom and dad are growing spiritually. We are also there to encourage parents and provide information and advice, especially to new moms.
