Jehovah’s Witnesses welcome all to 2015 ‘Imitate Jesus!’ Convention

Jehovah’s Witnesses will soon hold their annual conventions at the Accra Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Baatsona, Spintex Road . They extend an open invitation for all to attend. The theme of this year’s program is “Imitate Jesus!”

Obed Owusu-Kissi, a convention spokesman, states: “Jesus, the founder of Christianity, is widely considered as one of the most influential and significant men who ever lived. As Christians, a core belief of Jehovah’s Witnesses is that Jesus lived his life as a model for us to follow.”

The “Imitate Jesus!” conventions will examine Jesus’ life, as outlined in the Bible, and emphasize how all—regardless of their background, lifestyle, or religion—can benefit in practical ways from his example and teachings.

A highlight of the program will be the keynote address on Friday morning, entitled “Concealed in Him Are All the Treasures of Wisdom.”

Starting the weekend of 25th July 2015 , and continuing for the next 18 weeks, Jehovah’s Witnesses will extend personal invitations to everyone from Accra, Tema, and surrounding areas to attend the convention.

Locally, all of the area’s 538 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses will help distribute printed invitations to the convention. There is no admission fee. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.

The first of 13 three-day events to be held in Accra will begin Friday, August 7th 2015, at 9:20 a.m. An estimated 85,000 will come to the Accra Assembly Hall for the Bible-based programs.

Jehovah’s Witnesses in Ghana are organizing 101 conventions—in 9 languages—in 35 cities. Worldwide, there are over 8,000,000 Witnesses in more than 115,000 congregations.
