Weiss Ministries, Inc. of Chesapeake was founded in 2000 as a covering for the theatrical productions, preaching and teaching ministry, and publications opportunities by Juanita Weiss intended to bless the Body of Messiah. Weiss Ministries primary goal is the bridging of gaps between diverse demographics: ethnic groups, socio-economic groups, generational groups, and denominational groups. Weiss Ministries plans to accomplish its goal through the following objectives:
- Edification by the preached and taught Word of God
- Illumination through print and electronic media
- Revelation through the production of dramas and the performing arts
- Realization through the support of foreign and local missions intrinsically linked to the vision
Through each of these methods, Weiss Ministries keeps its vision upon Jerusalem by turning the minds, the eyes, and the hearts of the masses toward the City of God, naturally and spiritually.
