Jehovahメs Witnesses meet for worship twice each week. Jehovah's Witnesses study the Bible and apply its teachings. Most meetings include audience participation, similar to a classroom discussion. Each meeting begins and ends with prayer and song. Jehovah's Witnesses also meet once per year for a special memorial service for the death of Jesus. Meetings are public and everyone is welcome. Congregations do not collect money from participants at the meetings.

As of 2015, there are over 8 million Jehovah's Witnesses and over 115,000 congregations in the world. The group has no paid clergy. Instead, all baptized members are considered ordained ministers and share in the work of preaching and teaching. A group of elders supervise each congregation. Around 20 congregations make up a "circuit." Congregations sometimes receive visits from traveling elders that are known as "circuit overseers." The Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses is located in Brooklyn, New York. It provides instruction through special publications, meetings and schools. It also supervises the global work of the Jehovah's Witnesses and oversees the use of donated assets.
