Glad Tidings Assembly of God Church in Lower Swatara Township and 28-year-old Andrew David Jordan, of Elizabethtown, waived an appearance Thursday at a formal arraignment in Dauphin County Court on charges of false imprisonment and simple assault.
Prosecutors said the half-hour ordeal in March included interrogation and staged torture using power tools.
They said masked congregation members bound and blindfolded the teens and drove them in a van to the parsonage on the church grounds, where the men pretended to torture Jordan.
The mother of one 14-year-old girl filed a complaint with police.
