Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses

The non-profit corporation Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses was established to organize and administer the congregational affairs of Jehovah's Witnesses in the United States.

Publicly announced in January 2001, the Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses is a legal corporation used by the United States Branch Committee. The United States branch oversees the preaching work of Jehovah's Witnesses in the contiguous United States, Bermuda, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

This corporation operates along with Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania and Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc. It may pass direction to travelling overseers and local congregation elders or body of elders, and even to the body of elders through the travelling overseers. District overseers, circuit overseers and the body of elders in each congregation are considered an extension of the corporation and serve to disseminate communications to the congregations from the corporation (and by association, the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses), and to organize congregational arrangements in accord with directions from the corporation.
