Rev. Sofia began the Gloucester County Community Church in July of 1982 with the purpose of meeting the needs of people from the youngest to the oldest, in all areas of living, from the spiritual to the physical, from worship to entertainment as the Lord so provides and directs. He felt “the call” to return to “where he was raised” and provide an interdenominational, Bible believing, evangelistic church with the “warmth of the charismatics, the conviction of the holiness, and the stability of the fundamentalists.” The handful of people who met on that commencing Sunday has now grown to thousands.

Dr. Sofia’s love for music is evidenced by the varied and outstanding music ministry of the church. Above all, Bruce relishes the fact that many of his High School classmates now attend the church and have received Christ. He is the founder of Prayer Ministries, Inc., which is the corporation name of all of the church’s outreaches, including its radio and TV program, “Changed by the Word.”
Pastor Bruce has recently released his first book entitled,”Hope Beyond Suicide.” It is the first to be published from The Hijacked Life;Rescue Your Dream series distributed by Yorkshire Publishing.  It is Rev. Sofia’s prayer that this, and other subsequent books, will reach the world with the message of God’s “hope” through the comforting and embracing arms of a God whose love and grace is immeasurable.


Finally, much to the dismay of the pastoral staff and congregation Pastor Bruce is a die-hard New Jersey Devils fan. Keep him in prayer for this obvious character flaw.
