About 28,000 people are expected to show up for the annual Jehovah’s Witnesses convention this month.
This year’s theme, “Guided by God’s Spirit,” focuses on ways people can benefit from God’s holy spirit, said Gerry Wilhelm, news service coordinator for the event. The focus will be using the Bible and applying to it to everyday life.
There will be four sessions: Friday to Sunday; June 13 to 15; June 20 to 22; and June 27 to 29. All sessions start at 9:20 a.m. All sessions will be at the Tucson Convention Center, 260 S. Church Ave.
A Spanish language version of the convention will be in July and August, he said.
Admission to the event is free and nonmembers are welcome to attend.
