The Witnesses Now For Jesus conference has been held annually during October at the Blue Mountain Christian Retreat in New Ringgold, Pennsylvania since 1979. In 2017 we had our first annual Mid-West conference and in 2018 our first West Coast conference.
Since 1979 the Witnesses Now For Jesus conference has been a gathering place for exiting and ex-jehovah’s Witnesses, those who are called to minister to Jehovah’s Witnesses and others who are interested in or have been effected by the teachings and culture of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Why the name “Witnesses Now for Jesus”? Acts 1:8 (NIV) – “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Joan Cetnar hosted the Witnesses Now For Jesus with her husband Bill from it’s inception in 1979 until 1991, when Bill passed away and then by herself until 2011. Since then a team has coordinated the conferences.
