The Ordination Ceremony: Jehovah’s Witness Ordination

The branch of faith known as Jehovah’s Witness following guidelines of first-century Christianity. Therefore, Jehovah’s Witnesses have no separate clergy. According to JW.org: all baptized members are ordained ministers and share in the preaching and teaching work. Witnesses are organized into congregations of about 100 members. Spiritually mature men in each congregation serve as “older men,” or elders. (Titus 1:5)

These duties are assumed without pay.
