We discourage your attention to the comments below the article. The content is good because we talked about what 'Pew Research Center' says about their statistics in JW. The article says: 

 

Jehovah's Witnesses will hold their 2016 "Remain Loyal to Jehovah!" regional conventions in Baton Rouge over three weekends in July. The River Center will be the site of gatherings on July 8-10, July 15-17 and July 29-31.

Each convention is expected to have 5,100 delegates from various parts of Louisiana and Mississippi. The delegates will be housed at 17 Baton Rouge hotels, booking a total of 7,022 room nights, said Robert Bueche, a spokesman for Baton Rouge conventions.

Jehovah's Witnesses comprise one of the most racially and ethnically diverse religious groups in the United States, according to the Pew Research Center, and are known for their door-to-door proselytising. Among the most famous was the musician Prince.

They identify as Christians and teach that Jesus Christ was the son of God but is not part of the Trinity.

The three-day Baton Rouge programs will feature 49 presentations exploring the theme of loyalty. Additionally, the delegates have prepared 35 video segments specifically for the program plus two short films that will be shown on Saturdays and Sundays. Each day, the morning and afternoon sessions will be introduced by music videos recorded for the convention.

The program will begin each day at 9:20 a.m. and conclude on Fridays and Saturdays at 4:50 p.m. and on Sundays at 3:45 p.m. The programs will be open for the public to attend at no charge. Doors will open to the public each day at 8 a.m. for persons 65 and over and those with disabilities, and at 8:15 a.m. for general admission.

The gatherings will be part of a series of Jehovah's Witnesses conventions held worldwide. In the U.S., 481 conventions will be held in 130 cities between May 20 and Sept. 11 of this year, Bueche said.
