Evangelist Juanita Bynum to go on talk show Tuesday night

National Pentecostal evangelist Juanita Bynum is scheduled to make her first public appearance since she was allegedly beaten by her husband in a hotel parking lot.

She is expected to break her silence on Christian television at 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Bynum will be a special guest on Trinity Broadcast Network‘s “Praise The Lord” program. The Christian talk show, which features ministers, gospel artists and other news makers, is broadcast internationally.

The popular pastor whose message of female empowerment encourages women to walk away from dead-end relationships, has been in seclusion since she allegedly was choked, beaten and stomped by her husband Thomas W. Weeks on Aug. 21.

Weeks, who has told his congregation that the devil made him do it, was indicted by a grand jury Friday in connection with the attack. He has been charged with felony aggravated assault and terroristic threats and two misdemeanor counts of simple battery listed in a Fulton County grand jury indictment handed down on Friday.

Weeks is due in Fulton County Superior Court on Friday. The charges against him carry a maximum possible sentence of 27 years.

Audience members began trickling into Trinity Broadcast Network before 1 p.m. to get a seat for the Bynum broadcast. The auditorium at TBN holds 300 people.

Bynum’s appearance was not publicized on its Web site.

The slot listed the show as “TBA.” Her fans in the waiting room said they learned of the show on Bynum’s Web site, www.juanitabynum.com.
