Christians who don’t consider themselves Protestants are known as “Jehovah’s Witnesses.” Annual Jehovah’s Witness Conventions are followed by bigger assemblies known as Regional Conventions. Typically, these conventions run from Friday to Sunday for three days. The three-day summit, which began on October 27, ended on Sunday. Because Jehovah’s Witnesses are a distinct Christian sect, other groups frequently target them due to their distinctions.
