Uniting the World in Faith! Jehovah's Witnesses Hold Global Virtual Event in 240 Lands, 500+ Languages Breaking a century-old tradition in the name of health and safety, the largest convention organization in the world has moved its annual in-person event to a virtual format for the second time in as many years, cancelling nearly 6,000 conventions in 240 lands. For decades, thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses have streamed into Tucson, Arizona, to take over hotels and fill restaurants as they held their annual conventions, most recently at the Tucson Convention Center. In 2020, the pandemic unexpectedly interrupted that tradition moving the international religious organization to cancel in-person conventions throughout the world and launch a global virtual event. This was a first for Jehovah's Witnesses, who have held public conventions in stadiums, arenas, convention centers, and theaters around the world since 1897. "Powerful by Faith!" is the theme of the 2021 global event, which will be delivered in more than 500 languages to households throughout the globe over six weekends during July and August 2021, uniting some 15-20 million people in 240 countries. Since the convention is typically held from Friday through Sunday, the program will be available in six installments corresponding to morning and afternoon sessions. "Friday" morning's session will be available for streaming or download beginning June 28, 2021. Like most Jehovah's Witnesses, Tucson, Arizona, resident Gene McKelvey's fondest memory of in-person conventions at the Tucson Convention Center was volunteering alongside his fellow worshippers with tasks such as cleaning and stage setup. McKelvey always enjoyed the opportunity to reunite with old friends before and after the program. This year, many Jehovah's Witnesses like McKelvey look forward to faith-strengthening talks, as well as the two-part Bible drama "Daniel: A Lifetime of Faith." We look forward to welcoming the public and enjoying this summ
