ATLANTA (AP) - Bishop Thomas W. Weeks III, the ex-husband of
televangelist Juanita Bynum, had to relocate services after his Duluth, Ga., church was evicted from its building.
An attorney for Grimes-Square Executive, Inc., says Weeks, the leader of Global Destiny International Ministries, hasn't made any payments at all since July despite negotiations with the landlord. She says Weeks owes more than $400,000 in rent and fees.
Eviction proceedings began against Weeks in early October. Court
records show he tried unsuccessfully to delay the eviction.
A sheriff's deputy came to the church campus Friday to carry out the eviction. The campus includes business offices and the church.
Weeks' divorce attorney says he was unaware of the eviction, but
predicts Weeks will "land on his feet if that is indeed the case."
