Pastor John and Elaine Orlando
Lead Pastors

Pastor John and Elaine have been in ministry for over 18 years in the Tri-County area. After living most of their lives as atheists, in the year 2000 the Lord radically changed their lives and perspective of who Jesus is. Since then they have felt called to be active ministers at Calvary Temple International in Wayne, NJ. In 2012 the Lord confirmed to them to open a new church in Bergen county. They opened the doors of the church for their first service in June 2013 on State Street in Hackensack. After 2 and half years, it was necessary to take the next step of moving to their own facility. In May of 2016 they moved to their location in South Hackensack. In April of 2022, the Lord continued to move at CTI Real Life Church, and brought them to their current location in Fairfield, NJ where they have larger capacity to minister to the families of Bergen, Passaic, and Morris Counties. 


As well as serving as Lead Pastor to Real Life Church, Pastor John is also the founder of John Orlando Ministries, which is a ministry that assists other pastors and churches to grow in new and dynamic ways. John Orlando ministries also provides mentorship to men locally and abroad. For more information on John Orlando ministries be sure to check out
