Jehovah's Witness summer program


In a world where bad news endlessly streams on social media, TV and radio, a three-day live event open to the public will deliver only good news!
One of the largest convention organizations in the world returns to the Orangeburg Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Orangeburg, SC with a much-anticipated motivational program to comfort and encourage the public.
Jehovah’s Witnesses will present their 2024 “Declare the Good News”! convention series beginning the weekend of June 7-9, 2024. The free event is expected to draw more than 20,000 attendees to the city over the course of nine weekends – fueling the city’s economy with local spending at stores, hotels and restaurants.
“We are excited to work once again with city officials in Orangeburg to host our conventions,” said Ashley Martin, local spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “These conventions are a highlight of the year for thousands of people who need to experience some positivity in their lives, and we are happy to enjoy the program once again in this welcoming and hospitable city.” 
The “Declare the Good News”! convention will present Bible-based videos, discourses and interviews on topics such as…

  • Why Do We Need Good News?
  • Use the Good News to Defeat Bad News
  • Imitate Those Who Had Faith in the Good News

Saturday spotlights a baptism of candidates from surrounding communities, while a two-part video feature will captivate the audience on  Friday and Saturday mornings. Prior to each convention, local congregations will engage in a campaign to invite community members to this free event.
Last year, nearly 13 million people attended more than 6,000 three-day conventions worldwide.
