Report: Christ Tabernacle church banned children from services after registered sex offender returns

JACKSONVILLEM Fla. -- A Jacksonville church has allowed a registered sex offender, Darrell Gilyard, to return to the pulpit, reports WJXT News-4 in Jacksonville.

Gilyard pleaded guilty to lewd conduct and lewd molestation involving underage girls in his congregation at Shiloh Baptist Church in 2009.

Gilyard began preaching recently at Christ Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, which agreed to ban children from Sunday service since Gilyard is not allowed to have "unsupervised contact with children under 18 years old," documents show.
