The 2015 Regional Convention Series of Jehovah’s Witnesses enter the final lap this weekend in Ota, Ogun State. The Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses is hosting three convention series this year, each series consisting of four conventions. The convention, which has “Imitate Jesus!” as theme, started in late September at Ota and concludes at the same venue with the last convention to be held on December 9-13.
The last series starts this Friday, November 13, with a three-day convention to be conducted exclusively in Yoruba Language. This will be followed by an English Language convention on November 20-22, a Yoruba Language convention on December 4-6 and conclude with an English Language convention holding from December 9-13.
A statement by the Ota 9-12 Convention Series Media Services Department said: “The programme starts at 8:20 a.m. each day and closes at 3:50 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2:45 p.m. on Sunday. We warmly invite interested members of the public to attend the programme free of charge. Everyone is invited and no collection will be taken.”
The statement gave the highlights of the convention to include a moving two-part theatrical production that will portray significant events in Jesus’ life, interviews and demonstrations on practical ways to imitate Jesus today, as well as the special Bible discourse entitled “Jesus Christ, World Conqueror—How and When?” to be presented on Sunday morning.
It quoted J. R. Brown, spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses at their world headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, USA, as saying: “This year’s convention theme recognises Jesus Christ as a universally known figure and a positive role model for people of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures. We believe that the public will enjoy the fresh presentation of significant events in Jesus’ life. This year’s programme promises an interactive approach, incorporating meaningful and exciting video features that will show how we can benefit from imitating Jesus in our everyday lives.”
