Executive Pastor Jon Weiss
Raised from the dead at birth, miracles and wonders have followed Pastor Jon all this life.
For over 20 years, Pastor Jon has served in the local church ministering to teens, young adults, couples, families, kids, men, ministry leaders and pastors with his unique ability to connect with everyone from pastor’s kids to gang members.
At age 21, Jon led a small revival of young adults in Bartlett, IL based on the simple, profound revelation that God was real. Out of that revival, he established the Lost & Found youth ministry at Faith World Outreach Church, reaching hundreds of young adults for Christ over the next 5 years. For the next 10 years, he continued to serve as associate pastor under Faith World Outreach Church (FWOC) and head of FWOC’s extensive missions program and local government & school board outreach. He established FWOC’s first security team and is an accomplished musician and songwriter, penning over 50 praise and worship songs. In 2013, Pastor Jon relocated to Kirkland, IL (near Rockford) to pastor Faith World Outreach Church – West.
He has preached and encouraged God’s people all over the world, including Mexico, Russia, Latvia and Germany, and continues to have a heart for missions work and the missionary.
In late October 2017, Jon and his wife Kristen moved their family across the country to Florida to plant Revelation Oaks Church in Wesley Chapel, FL.
