NORTHERN UTAH —  This time of year, the Lopez family could be headed to a theme park, the beach, or even visiting grandparents for the weekend. Instead, J.R. and Jill and their two kids are eagerly anticipating a three-day convention with a few thousand people who will come to hear exciting good news!

“Every year I look forward to the variety of topics discussed, there seems to be something for everyone,” said J.R., of Draper, Utah.

“I especially love how it helps me to see the practical ways in which I can apply Bible principles in my life and with my family.”

One of the largest convention organizations in the world returns to the Dee Events Center in Ogden with a much-anticipated motivational program to comfort and encourage the public.

In a world where bad news endlessly streams on social media, and other media platforms, Jehovah’s Witnesses will present their 2024 “Declare the Good News!” convention series beginning the weekend of June 28- 30, 2024.

The free, three-day live event is expected to draw more than 7,900 attendees to the city over the course of two weekends– fueling the city’s economy with local spending at stores, hotels, and restaurants.

Prior to each convention, local congregations will engage in a campaign to invite community members to this free event.

“The local congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses are excited about the “Declare the Good News” convention and are zealously sharing in a campaign to invite all we can reach in the Cache Valley,” said Gregory Hampton, a local overseer in the Logan English Congregation.  

“We cannot wait for this amazing convention entitled ‘Declare the Good News!’” said Patrick Tertulien, Utah spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “Thousands of people are excited to attend, as it will not just be joyfully refreshing to Jehovah’s Witnesses, but to the city as well. Even a place as wonderful as Utah with its beautiful mountain ranges can use good news in today’s stressful world.”

The “Declare the Good News!” Convention will present Bible-based videos, discourses, and interviews on topics such as: • Why Do We Need Good News? • “Everlasting Good News” – In What Sense? • Why We Don’t Fear Bad News.

Saturday features a baptism of candidates from surrounding communities, while a two-part video series will captivate the audience on Friday and Saturday mornings.

 Last year, nearly 13 million people attended more than 6,000 three-day conventions worldwide.
