How Are Congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses Organized?

A body of elders supervises each congregation. About 20 congregations form a circuit. Congregations receive periodic visits from traveling elders known as circuit overseers.

Bible-based guidance and instructions are provided by a Governing Body made up of longtime Witnesses who currently work at the international offices of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Brooklyn, New York.—Acts 15:23-29; 1 Timothy 3:1-7.
