Although the event was organized by the Jehovah's Witnesses, it was opened to the entire Northland public.

"A lot of the parts are about how to improve family life, how to deal with stress, how to get along with people of all backgrounds, so its not so much preaching as its practical Christianity," said News Director, David Kennedy.

The event attracted a crowd of about 1,800 people. The assembly is held once or twice every year in Duluth.

Kennedy said the next assembly will be held in about six months and added it is open not to only members of the Jehovah's Witnesses.

"Persons of all faith and people with no faith are certainly welcome to come. They'll find a lot that’s really practical," Kennedy added.
