During our monthly Bible study, someone asked about the Jehovah’s Witness visitations and how to sign up for a visit. The question prompted a conversation among the members, with some saying they had no idea and others recalling the Jehovah’s Witness showing up at their doorstep without them signing up for anything.
The debate caught my attention, and using my knowledge of theology, I answered the question. This experience made me realize that most people are also curious about the same, which led me to write the article “How to Sign Up for Jehovah’s Witness Visits.”
Through this article, I will further discuss how many times you can get a visit from Jehovah’s Witnesses, how often they visit people, and many more facts.
Read the article to learn more.
How do you request a visit from Jehovah’s Witnesses?
Requesting a visit can be done through the Jehovah’s Witness website, JW.org, where you will be required to fill out a form with your details, such as your name, gender, and location.
You can also contact the kingdom hall near your place for assistance regarding how and when you can get visits from the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
How many times can you get a visit from Jehovah’s Witnesses?
The number of times you can get a visit mainly depends on the person who calls you. Some might come back regularly, depending on their schedule and the level of interest you portray.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses’ main goal is to preach their beliefs to as many people as possible, as stated in Matthew 28:19: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
Therefore, they cannot stay in one place, especially if you are not expressing any interest.
How often do Jehovah’s Witnesses visit people?
How often they contact you depends on you, how much interest you are showing, and whether you are serious about wanting to know more about their religion.
If you show a lot of interest, witnesses may visit regularly to assess your progress. Other witnesses may also visit to spread the word.
Can anyone request a visit from Jehovah’s Witnesses?
Yes, anyone can request a visit from a Jehovah’s Witness. They’re always ready to welcome new members and to spread their beliefs to as many people as possible, as that is part of their main goal.
If you’re interested, you can call the nearest Kingdom Hall in your area; the numbers are available online.
Can you request a visit from Jehovah’s Witnesses at any time?
Yes, you can request a visit at your convenience. However, the Jehovah’s Witnesses also have their scheduled time when they conduct their door-to-door visits.
You can talk to them about your preference and try to arrange a suitable time for a discussion. They may consider your request or choose to stick to their schedule.
Can you request a visit from a Jehovah’s Witness for someone else?
Yes, you can request visitation for someone else, a relative or a friend. However, you must discuss the issue with the person you called for them to be aware of the situation, and you should also inform the person you requested.
This will ensure mutual understanding between the two parties and prevent misunderstandings.
Is it legal for Jehovah’s Witnesses to go door to door without a request?
Yes, it is legal for them to go door to door. This is because their coming to your door has no harm and is not considered trespassing, seeing that their main mission is evangelizing.
However, if you ask them to leave or you say you’re not interested and they persist, this might be a violation of your legal rights, and you can decide to take the necessary actions.
Do Jehovah’s Witnesses have a call list?
Yes, they have a call list, but it mainly includes people they’ve met before. They do this to assess both their progress and that of the individual.
However, in case you have privacy concerns, you can discuss them with the Jehovah’s Witness who visits you, and they will be sure to respect your privacy.
Does Jehovah’s Witness have an email list?
Yes, they may have an email list that they use to communicate internally or even to people they have had encounters with.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses mainly started emailing people after the COVID-19 pandemic, which interrupted their usual mode of operations.
In case of privacy concerns, you can discuss them with the Jehovah’s Witness who visits you, and they will surely see to it that your concerns are addressed.
How do Jehovah’s Witnesses get your phone number?
The Jehovah’s Witnesses may get your phone number if you have had previous encounters with them during their door-to-door visits.
They also get most of their phone numbers from public directories. However, the Jehovah’s Witnesses insist that the numbers are not used for anything else other than providing knowledge of the scriptures to those interested.
How do Jehovah’s Witnesses get your address if you don’t share it with them?
The Jehovah’s Witnesses mainly get your address either from a person who knows you and is in the group or through publicly available lists.
This might sound alarming to you, but according to them, you should not feel concerned as they neither have a database with people’s addresses nor are they tracking you.
What is the purpose of the visits?
The purpose of the Jehovah’s Witness visits is strongly based on their belief that part of their calling is to evangelize and preach the Gospel to the world in accordance with Matthew 28:19.
These visits to them act as their divine duty and command. Jehovah’s Witnesses also try and approach the visitations casually; they start by asking about your day before steering the conversation toward their beliefs.
In addition, they attempt to establish a sense of familiarity by informally approaching individuals.
The main reason for the visits is to have a bible discussion with you. Discussions mainly focus on why people should repent, the end times, and how evil should be shunned.
This is the strategy they use to win people into their religion. During visits, you can have Bible-based discussions and receive free magazines with various topics based on their beliefs.
Can you cancel a visit?
Yes, you can cancel a visit, do this by:
- Log into your account on JW.org
- Click on My Schedule, Find the visit you want to cancel, and click on it
- Click on the cancel button on the bottom page. A popup window will appear for you to confirm if you truly want to cancel the visit. Click Yes to confirm.
Before canceling visits, seek advice from congregation elders to avoid future implications.
