New York Assemblies of God District Superintendent Dr. Duane Durst said the organization planned to examine the church’s finances carefully.
The legal judgment requires the Keyes to pay $1,231,105 in restitution to Glad Tidings, which includes borrowed money plus interest.
The Keyes couple and Costantin have been permanently barred from acting as fiduciaries of any New York nonprofit or religious corporation. The agreement allows Donna Keyes to continue to serve as senior pastor at Glad Tidings.
The attorney who represented the ministers and Costantin, Maurice Heller, declined to comment. He said the settlement doesn’t require his clients to admit guilt, but forbids them from making public statements contesting the allegations.
