When did World Power Tour get started?

This subject comes up more and more as the interest in our program grows at a natural pace. To begin with, WPT would never take credit for the understanding found in our publications. Our researchers and historians give credit to the faithful slave.

As wise King Solomon said, “there is nothing new under the sun.”. It is conceivable that as early as the founding of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1870, early Bible Students were visiting the Ancient Near East and Egyptian galleries.

Touring the wonderful MET Museum from a Biblical perspective is not a new concept. In fact, you may be interested to know that one of our senior contributors made frequent visits to the MET in the 70′s taking groups of local JW youths on Bible tours. Though he never made it a formal arrangement, his desire to share these museum treasures became our inspiration.

Just before this brother’s death, WPT began taking local congregation groups on a private basis in the summer of 1998.

We have purposefully managed all our bookings modestly in order to allow the WPT Administration and Guides to focus on the more important things…like meeting attendance and door to door field service.

Special greetings to the Pernick family….
