Who are the men of the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses? Most Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW’s) can name at best perhaps one, maybe two members of the Governing Body (GB). The vast majority of JW’s, including the Elders, have absolutely no idea what the GB’s qualifications are or who they are. Yet, this group of men (7 at the time of this writing) are the ones who formulate all of the doctrines and policies of the Watchtower organization. The GB for the most part, has the complete trust of approximately 7 million JW’s without the vast majority of them knowing anything at all about the background of the men at the helm.
For this reason, I have posted a picture list of the Men who are currently serving as the GB members (As of May 2012) along with the Watchtower’s resume’ for each one. After you have read a little about these men and see their qualifications, please consider a few questions and comments I’ve made toward the bottom of this article.
