Waterloo, IL (KSDK) - Joyce Meyer, the world renowned televangelist, arrived at a Monroe County court in Waterloo, Illinois Wednesday afternoon to give testimony in the Chris Coleman murder case.

Coleman, of Columbia, Illinois, is charged with murdering his wife and two young boys in May of 2009.

The reason Meyer gave testimony is because Coleman worked for Meyer as head of security.  He resigned after being arrested for the crimes.

Joyce Meyer's son, Daniel, also testified.  The judge closed the testimony to the media.

After giving her testimony, Meyer spoke to reporters outside the courthouse.  She said she answered the questions asked of her as best as she could.

Earlier this year, friends of Sheri Coleman (Chris Coleman's late wife) testified that Sheri told them that she had spoken to Meyer about marital problems Chris and her were having. The friends told the court that Meyer made the Colemans get marriage counseling.

The prosecution, claims Coleman killed his wife and family because he was having an affair, but could not divorce his wife due to a no divorce policy at Joyce Meyer Ministries. The prosecution claims he would have lost his job if he filed for divorce.

Wednesday's testimony will be recorded and could be shown at trial, set to start later this month. Court documents say Meyer will be out of state during the trial.
