Rabbi Steven J. Weiler was born in Manhattan, NY, to Jewish parents who had escaped Vienna, Austria during the Holocaust. Living in a primarily Jewish town (Great Neck, Long Island) he had never been aware of anyone who believed Yeshua is the Messiah, nor had anyone shared their faith with him. But at age 18, Steve went to see the movie The Greatest Story Ever Told and his life was changed forever. Shortly thereafter, he dedicated his life to serving the Lord.
Steve spent his college years in Baltimore, MD, where he received a Bachelors Degree in Music Education from Peabody Conservatory of Music. Later he received a Masters Degree in Education from Johns Hopkins University while teaching at an inner-city high school for four years. Also during this time, he was singing as a paid soloist at various conservative synagogues and churches, while also attending Beit HaMashiach Messianic Synagogue.
In 1979, after a few years of sales, Steve moved his family to Philadelphia, PA in order to become the sales manager of an industrial safety company. A few years later, he started his own business: Weiler Strength & Fitness. In 1988, he became the principal of Chalutzim Academy – a private K12 Messianic Jewish day school of Congregation Beth Yeshua. There he also served as the chief administrator, taught various courses including “Fundamentals of Biblical Judaism”, led a children’s chorus group called Growing Faith, produced two Messianic children’s albums, coproduced two musicals, oversaw the youth program, and led an adult singing troupe called “Shivat Tzion” (Return of Zion) which produced two albums.
Steve was ordained as a Messianic Rabbi by the leadership of Congregation Beth Yeshua which is under the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA) and the International Association of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues (IAMCS). In April 1999, he moved his family to Tampa, FL to become the rabbi of Shoresh David Messianic Synagogue. He has always had a burden for youth, strengthening families, having unity in the Body of Believers, and to see his fellow Jewish people accept Yeshua as their Messiah.
Rabbi Steve also serves on the boards of The Tree of Life Bible Society, The Tampa Bay Committee To Bless Israel, Ner Tamid, and Bayshore Christian School. He also served for six years on the Executive Committee of the MJAA/IAMCS. Since 1999, Steve has been privileged to begin 6 more Shoresh David Messianic Synagogues in the Greater Tampa, Lakeland, and St. Petersburg areas. Also, each week, and for a number of years, Steve has been on WTBN radio in the Tampa Bay area.
Rabbi Steve is blessed with a wonderful wife, Pat, who has often led praise and worship at Shoresh David in Tampa. They have two daughters together – Rebecca and Sarah. Rebecca, who lived in Israel for 15 years, now lives in Tampa with her husband Yosi, and daughters, Noa and Eden, and often leads worship at Shoresh David in Tampa. Sarah has also been involved in leading worship at Shoresh David in Tampa for a number of years, and she and her husband, Mario, have two boys, MJ and Gabriel.
Matt Blair was born In Wilmington, NC. He has been married to his wife Erin for almost 20 years (April 2024). They have 5 children who are all a part of the Bayshore Family, Kaylee (Senior), Abi (Sophomore), Zoe (8th), Elliana (7th), and Judah (K3). Matt serves as the Heights Location Pastor for Radiant Church. He and his family moved to Tampa at the end of 2013 so they could plant a church in the New Tampa area, Limitless Church which launched in September of 2014. After leading that church for almost 7 years the Blairs were called by God to merge their church with Radiant Church.
Matt made the decision to surrender his life to Jesus in the spring of 1996 at the age of 16. He would go on to receive his Bachelors in Science Degree in Sociology from Wingate University. It was there during Matt's Freshman year that he felt God calling him into full time ministry. Matt spent almost 10 years in the Christian Music Industry recording albums and touring as an independent singer-songwriter and worship leader. He has also served on two different church staffs as a full time pastor overseeing worship and creative departments.
Since moving to Tampa the Blairs have seen God do incredible things in and through their family and Bayshore has been a HUGE part of that. Pastor Matt not only has joined the board of BCS but he also serves as the Varsity Golf Coach. Pastor Matt also loves speaking at BCS Chapels throughout the year and taking time to invest and speak into the lives of the students. You can find him and most of the BCS sporting events and every Fine Arts Production serving and cheering on his daughters as well as their fellow Faith Warriors.
