Internet evangelist Bishop Thomas W. Weeks III married his new soul mate, Christina Glenn, a self-described prophetess, in a quiet ceremony over the weekend.
Weeks, the head of Global Destiny Worldwide, an international church empire, decided to keep his nuptials private, inviting only his church family and friends instead of the media spotlight that followed him during the stormy break-up of his marriage to Pentecostal pastor Juanita Bynum in 2008.
The newlyweds are now on their honeymoon in an undisclosed location. Weeks and Glenn are featured on Global Destiny’s church Web site, bishopweeks.com, discussing their marriage plans and gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes.
“I am so glad that God has given me you, Prophetess Christina Glenn, as the greatest gift in my life besides himself,” Weeks tells his fiancé. “He couldn’t have made a better choice .”
Weeks describes Glenn -- who like Bynum has a ministry of her own -- as loyal and caring. Glenn stands with a broad smile and a huge red flower on her jacket pledging her love to Weeks.
“I love you so much,” she says. “God has blessed me with an awesome man of God, a prophet, a king — I appreciate you.”
Weeks has already incorporated Glenn into his enterprise, which hawks everything from videos to Christian conference tickets. The couple appears together on a videotaped seminar showing Christians how to start loving relationships called “You Can Begin Again.”
Weeks’ divorce attorney, Randy Kessler, confirmed Tuesday that Weeks and Glenn got hitched. “They are away on their honeymoon enjoying time together,” the attorney said.
The couple had not granted interviews since they planned to marry, deciding instead to keep their love affair private. Kessler said Weeks was wary of interviews because he did not want to discuss his relationship with Bynum any longer.
Weeks describes his wedding ceremony to Glenn on his Web site as a potential “five-star experience,” enticing viewers to tune in if he decides to air it later.
His elaborate marriage to Bynum, an evangelist, gospel artist and actress, was aired before millions on Trinity Broadcasting Network in 2002.
Bynum and Weeks built Global Destiny Church in Duluth together before their relationship fizzled.
On Aug. 21, 2007, Weeks attacked Bynum in the parking lot of the Renaissance Concourse Hotel in Atlanta after the couple, then separated, met to discuss their problems. Weeks was later convicted of aggravated assault in the attack. He was sentenced as a first offender, given three years’ probation and ordered to attend anger management classes and perform 200 hours of community service.
Weeks relocated his church in Duluth after it was evicted from its campus.
