Witnesses Now for Jesus 2017 will be held on October 6-8, 2017 at our usual location at the beautiful Blue Mountain Christian Retreat. This is a great weekend of praise and worship, testimonies, teaching and fellowship. If you are presently one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, a former Witness, are in ministry to Jehovah’s Witnesses, have family members who are Witnesses or are just interested in them, please come and enjoy this conference.

We have a special guest speaker this year – Rob Bowman. He is the author of a dozen books, including “Understanding Jehovah’s Witnesses: Why They Read the Bible the Way They Do”, “Jehovah’s Witnesses , Jesus Christ, and the Gospel of John” and “Putting Jesus in His Place: The Case for the Deity of Christ.” Rob will be speaking twice during the conference.

Also this year, we have lightened the schedule up a bit. We’ve gotten feedback from several people that it would be good to have more time for fellowship, prayer, discussion and just hanging out with one another.

If you have not yet made plans to attend, it’s not too late. As previously, there is no registration fee for Witnesses Now for Jesus. Please contact the Blue Mountain Christian Retreat at 570-386-2154 for rooming for the conference.

See the post below – WNFJ Conference Info, Updates & Reminders – for all the details.

Sep 192016

We know there are a lot of you out there who have been to WNFJ in the past and haven’t been able to get here in a while and a lot of others who would like to come, but are not able to make it for one reason or other. Now, if you can’t physically make it to WNFJ, there are two virtual ways you can be there.

First, you can watch and listen to the conference via Blue Mountain Christian Retreat’s live webstream at

Secondly, you can make a virtual appearance at the conference. We always start off on Friday morning by passing a microphone around the audience and give everyone who wants to participate a minute or two to introduce themselves.

You can introduce yourself, tell us where you are from, a little about yourself and send greetings to the rest of the WNFJ community by taking a short video with your tablet, cell phone or whatever other video recorder you have and email it to . Please keep it to a minute or so. We will show as many as we have time for on Friday morning and throughout the rest of the conference.

Let us see and hear from you !

If you are planning on attending (and we hope you are), here’s a few things to keep in mind.

Getting Here

Neither BMCR or WNFJ run a shuttle from either the airport or the bus station. However if you hit the “Contact Us” tab at the top of the page and tell us how many of you there are, where and when you are arriving or where and when you wish to depart, we’ll post it in the “Transportation” link. And if you are in a position to help out by picking someone up or dropping someone off at the airport or bus station, click on “Contact Us” and we’ll link you up.

And finally if you wish to carpool with someone near you or on your way here, drop us a message at the “Contact Us” tab, let us know where you are driving from and we’ll post it for you.

Staying Here

We do not have a registration fee for Witnesses Now for Jesus because BMCR rolls the cost of renting the meeting rooms into the cost of the rooms. So we encourage you to stay at BMCR. Please book your rooms as soon as possible. You can contact Blue Mountain Christian Retreat directly at 570-386-2154 for rooming. When you arrive, please check in at the main desk at BMCR main building. At that time, or later if you wish, you can also purchase meal tickets.

If you are not staying at BMCR, they ask that you pay a $6.00 per person, per day “commuter fee”. You can drop by the front desk at BMCR and pay them there.

Being Here

We want your being at Witnesses Now for Jesus 2015 to be an enjoyable and upbuilding experience. If there is anything we can do to make it more so, please drop by the welcome desk and let us know.

Helping Here

Sound and projection

The staff at BMCR covers the sound board for some of the sessions, so we need volunteers to run it for the sessions they do not cover. We also need volunteers to handle projection of the lyrics during praise and worship and the speakers’ presentations during their talks. Please don’t think that you have to have a ton of experience in these areas before you can volunteer. Basically, if you can click a mouse, you can do projections.

If you’d like to volunteer in either of these areas, please contact us using the “Contact Us” tap at the top of the page.
