In 2000, the Lord moved upon David and Juanita Weiss’ hearts to found Weiss Ministries, Inc. In 2001, this ministry gained its 501(c)3 nonprofit status. It served as an umbrella for their teaching, dramatic arts and media ministries. From 2001 to 2003 they hosted a weekly radio broadcast entitled “The Master Calls” and published a quarterly magazine entitled Touching His Heart. As members of Beth Messiah Synagogue, the Lord began to refine and refocus their vision, so Weiss Ministries became a bridge to connect different sectors of the population through the use of Jewish-rooted teachings.

In March 2014, after having served at Beth Messiah for over 25 years under the leadership of Dr. Joseph Rosenfarb, the Lord led them to begin a Hebrew-roots teaching in their home. By late April of 2014, God used Tammy Daniels, Asst. Pastor of Kingdom Life Ministries, to further His plans as she saw the calling of God upon their lives. She arranged a meeting with her Bishop and Pastor, Randy Wooden, who, through the Spirit of God, asked David and Juanita Weiss to oversee a vision of his — to have a Messianic Satellite Campus Ministry.

They would get to do all that God had prepared them for and had placed in their hearts to do: to inspire people to live Yeshua-centered lives by carrying out the Kingdom mandates to love, study, pray, evangelize and disciple through Jewish roots teaching. Through Bishop Wooden, Pastor Tammy and the Kingdom Life Ministries’ family and campus, they would get to celebrate the moedim, share the Hebraic Roots of the Kingdom to the Church, and support Israel in ways they never could have before. By the Ruach HaKodesh, they would get to raise up Spirit-filled believers through a Spirit-led congregation that operates in the gifts of the Spirit and produces the fruit of the Spirit.

So by May 2014, David and Juanita accepted this calling from God and were ordained as members of Kingdom Life Ministries and pastors of Kingdom Life Messianic Congregation. Twelve adults and seven children began this journey with them in the transition from their home to 1280 Bells Mill Road. KLMC held its inaugural service on June 21, 2014 with over 80 in attendance, friends and family praying God’s speed to the first Messianic Congregation in Chesapeake.

In September 2014, KLMC held its Dedication Service where Chesapeake Mayor Alan Krasnoff and local pastors gave words of encouragement and welcome to the community.
