Actual Updates from the 2017 Annual Meeting of Jehovah's Witnesses PDF Print E-mail

The 2017 Annual Meeting of Jehovah's Witnesses was a great success.  It was "held on Saturday, October 7, 2017. On the same day, a dedication program for the new world headquarters in Warwick and for the Wallkill expansion" was also held. It was attended by thousands of brothers and sisters including those in the live streaming and delayed broadcast.

Now many of us are wondering about those new things that has been discussed.  Here are some of the new and exciting things announced from the program:


  • Starting in January 2018, there will be only three (3) public edition of Watchtower and three (3) Awake! magazine per year.
  • There will be a new study book. (How to Remain in God's Love)
  • Emphasis should be on bringing in those righteously disposed and not on just placing literature.
  • Clearer understanding of the "Spiritual Temple" and "Spiritual Paradise."
  • Study Edition of Watchtower and Watchtower Simplified Edition will be redesigned.
    • Starting January 1, 2019, both editions will be combined as one. The online version of the simplified will be available online only.
  • A new JW Library App Tool Box feature we can use in the ministry.
  • More updates coming soon...
