Update

Just to remind and update everyone. Tomorrow is the date for the Pre-Trial conference. It is set for 9 a.m. in Court room #5. I will update the sight tomorrow with the details as to what took place. More to come.
We are all patiently waiting. It is a long, slow process.

HE IS STILL A CHILD OF GOD; AND NO ONE IS SHORT OF SIN BECAUSE YOUR SIN IS NOT HIS SIN, HOW CAN YOU JUDGE? THE BIBLE CLEARLY STATES NO SIN IS GREATER THAN THE OTHER. LETS NOT PUT A FALLIN CHRISTIAN DOWN BUT PICK HIM UP AND PRAY FOR HIM TO OUR FATHER, WHICH IS HIS FATHER. HE WAS PUT BEFORE US BY GOD AND GOD DOES NOT MAKE ANY MISTAKES. ONCE AGAIN WE HAVE ALL SINNED BUT SOME HAVE NOT BEEN CAUGHT, IN WHICH YOU MAY HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT IN A MORE DIFFICULT WAY, WHERE YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS. YES IT IS WRONG, HE REALLY NEEDS HELP WITH THIS SORT OF SICKNESS, AND THERE IS CERTAINLY HELP OUT THERE FOR HIM. YOU CAN'T TAKE THE FACT AWAY THAT HE CAN DELIVER THE WORD. NOW ASK YOURSELF, DO YOU GO TO CHURCH TO LIKE AND AGREE WITH THE PASTOR'S BEHAVIOR OR TO GET FEED THE WORD OF CHRIST? THANK YOU FOR KEEPING FOLLOWERS UPDATED, YOUR TIME AND EFFORTS ARE APPRECIATED.

Well said I agree and I am praying for all the victims. Pastor DG is a victim as well.

Anon 11:51pm please explain to all of us how Darrell is a victim.For over 20 years he has been committing these kinds of acts.Anon 11:28pm the Pastor has a biblical mandate to live above reproach please read 1Timothy 3:1-7.The Apostle Paul always used as a testimony that he lived a holy life(2Cor.4:1-2;Eph.5:1-11;1Thes.2:1).The Apostle Peter wrote "But as HE(God) which has called you is Holy,so be you holy in all manner of conduct;Because it is WRITTEN,Be you holy;for I AM HOLY(1Pet.1:14-16).Darrell is not sick;Darrell is a premeditated predator prey on the helpless and the weak.One thing I do agree with you on,he does need our prayers.

To ALL of the anonymous posters who are saying he is still a child of God, sin is sin, and the entire issue of judgment... PLEASE GO READ YOUR BIBLES! I'm praying that your eyes and understanding would really see what is going on. If he did this to your child, I can't imagine that you would feel the same way. He is an adult and enough is enough with Pastors not living what they preach! Yes, we can pray but we all have to deal with the law when it comes to breaking any of them. Many people can deliver the word ... that really does not make them ordained of God if they are living a lie! Once again to Tiffany, keep us updated and I'm praying that justice will be served and that all Pastors would live and preach according to the word of God. God is not pleased with this foolishness or people trying to explain away behavior like this. 20 years of foolishness and you think it is ok. Please wake up and smell the coffee. I pray that you don't have children because God forbid you judge someone that has child molester/I cheat on my wife... written all over their face. God help us all.

AMEN PASTOR ROD! I repent. I was to angry at the silly responses to just pray to go look up scripture... This entire we are not to judge attitude makes me sick!!! Again, thank you for speaking the TRUTH and for sharing what the word of God says!

HE NEEDS DELIVERANCE... SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT WHEN YOU CAN KEEP THIS MESS UP FOR OVER 20 YEARS! My husband is a Pastor and I pray for him constantly! He loves his family, lives what he preaches, and speaks against mess like this. If I found out that he was involved with something like this, I would pray, ask for the truth, leave, and let justice be served!

A wolf who puts on the garment of a shepherd is not a sheep who has gone astray. Gilyard, and other pastors like him, needs to be held accountable for this unthinkable abuse of ministerial power.
The Bible is clear that sexual immorality of the level Gilyard has taken it is not "sin"; it is evil. Read Leviticus 18:24-30. If God was willing (and did) cast out His children from the Promised Land, are we so arrogant a people to think He will not do likewise with Christians? Here is another passage to consider: Ezekiel, chaps. 8 and 9 tell of sexual immorality by priests who thought no one would see what they were doing. God commanded Ezekiel to bore a hole in the wall of the Temple to uncover secretive sexual immorality being committed in the house of God by the priests. Pastors who do what Gilyard did think no one will see. God sees. He is the witness that ultimately counts. Paul, in Ephesians 4 and 5, sternly warns against living in sexual immorality.
It is our duty as believers to hold these terrible "men of God" accountable for their despicable deeds in abusing their power as pastors. It is the fiduciary duty of elders and church leaders to put these men out of the ministry (I Tim. 5).
This is not to say errant pastors should be banned from attending church/sitting in the pew. They certainly have the option to repent and change (although this is unlikely, given the psychological make up of people who do what Gilyard did).
It is to say, however, they should never be allowed to hold a place of church leadership again because they are no longer qualified for the ministry (I Timothy).
The question is whether we, as believers, will exercise sound judgment to clean up the house of God or not. God help us if we do not.
My prayers are with Tiffany Croft and the other victims of Gilyard for being willing to stand up against this evil. May the Lord be with Tiffany, law officials, and anyone else who sees the importance of protecting innocent parishioners from wolves.

To anon 11:28
"the bible clearly states no sin is greater than the other."

As you know concerning the law of the land there ARE wrongs greater than the other that's why there are different degrees of punishment. This is where your good friend Darrell has overstepped...The church has dealt with him willy nilly and he's not used to being hemmed up for what he does as long as the beautiful words keep spilling from his mouth. The church has been an ill-equipped babysitter to a little monster. Let's see if he and his lawyer will make the legal system swoon. I am waiting to see. More than anything it is money and favors that sometimes keep justice from being served. Someone commented on a blog I read that the judge in gilyard's case, Micheal Weatherby, is notorious for giving near none judgements to serious offenders.

Darrell really thinks he has done no wrong he is a law unto himself. You quote the bible but what you don't know is Darrell is his own bible. It is best that he has been turned over, at least, to a more qualified governess. Let's hope.

You are right we have all done something wrong but the fact is Darrell has done his wrong too many times. The fact is if you continue to proceed in wrongdoing it's just a matter of time before you get caught and caught in a way where there is no further escape. Sometimes you are hemmed up and caught on the very first occasion of a sin. That's not the case with gilyard, he's had many chances and unbelievably some are willing to give him even more. Let me ask the gilyites out there, If he is given more chances will it change anything???????????
ANYTHING??????????

Thank You Pastor Rod H for putting that scripture out there. I know who you are being that I was a member of Shiloh while you were there and know( a few) of the reasons you left.

The important thing to know here is exactly what you presented. Pastors, elders, bishop, etc ARE held to a higher accountability for their actions because they are in a position of influence and leadership. God does not take their sins lightly; Afterall, Moses was not allowed to enter the Promised Land not because of some heinous sin but because he openly disobeyed God and God could not ignore that even in the slightest so just imagine how HE must feel about sins against innocent, vulnerable children that people in these positions are commanded to protect.

We know because we have a little more insight into these dealings. How would people really react if they knew that these 2 girls would bring DG's total to approx. 4 to 5 young girls he has done this way, and this is not gossip it can be substantiated. Would that make people upset enough, or maybe if they were younger, like age 7, maybe then people can be OUTRAGED!!

Secondly, are we sure GOD put DG before us or did DG call himself? After all he never finished the proper schooling. I have a heard time believing that the GOD I know and love would be saying here is My man of God I have sent to lead and nurture my flock. Now he is whorish, manipulative, doesn't live what he preaches, greedy and like them young ( so don't leave your wife or child aroung him) but other than that he can surely preach! That is not what GOD has taught us!

He does need our prayers and serious counseling and until then should NEVER be allowed in anyones pulpit!

Anonymous said...

Even if he gets prayer and serious counseling he should NEVER be allowed in anyone's pulpit. As others have pointed out he is disqualified according to the scriptures.

FYI, Matt 7 does not say that we can't judge other's doings. It states that IF we do, we are to be judged by the same standards. Judge me...I am an open book. And yes, Pastor Gilayrd can be judged, too. He was wrong and he is NO victim.

THIS IS ANON 11:28 I'LL TAKE THAT NAME.AS FOR PASTOR ROD HOW COULD YOU NOT BELIEVE PASTOR GILYARD IS A VICTIM. DO YOU REALLY THINK HE PREACHES TO BE IN THE SPOT LIGHT TO FIND CHILDREN AND WOMEN TO ATTACK. THERE HAS TO BE SOME SORT OF CHEMICAL IMBALANCE. REALIZE HIS CHILDHOOD, DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT HE IS DEALING WITH PSYCHOLOGICALLY? THIS WOULD MAKE HIM A VICTIM. YES YOU CAN REFLECT AND QOUTE SCRIPTURES BUT ARE YOU WALKING A HOLY LINE OR HAVE YOU FALLIN SHORT OF SIN. AS A MAN OF GOD WHY WOULD YOU RESULT TO CALLING HIM NAMES OR ARE YOU JUST A PASTOR? STILL HE IS YOUR BROTHER IN CHRIST.
ANON 9:31... AND IF IT WAS MY CHILD MY FIRST RESPONSE WOULD BE A NATURAL ACT OF RAGE, BUT WE ARE THREE MONTHS INTO THE SITUATION AND WITH CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF PRAYERS AND DISCUSSIONS WITH GOD THERE WOULD BE SOME SORT OF UNDERSTANDING. AS I PREVIOUSLY STATED, HE WAS WRONG! NO PASTOR LIVES WHAT THEY PREACH BECAUSE THEN YOU WOULD HAVE A PERFECT MAN. AND THROUGH THE WORD, WE KNOW THERE IS NOT A PERFECT MAN.
ANON 9:40...NOW I KNOW WE ARE LIVING IN OUR LAST DAYS BECAUSE YOU ARE STATING THAT YOUR PASTOR HUSBAND IS PERFECT OR WHAT IS HE PREACHING THAT HE IS LIVING? IS HE PREACHING SIN? DO YOU REMEMBER YOUR VOWS? OR THOSE DON'T PERTAIN TO A PERFECT PASTOR'S WIFE. IF IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR 20 YEARS WHY WOULD YOU LISTEN TO HIM PREACH, INSTEAD OF WARNING AND SPEAKING AGAINST IT? HE CAN'T BE ALL BAD MANY SOULS WERE SAVED AND LIVES TURNED OVER TO CHRIST. LOST SHEEP WERE ABLE TO GET BACK INTOUCH WITH THEIR MASTER AGAIN.DG WENT ASTRAY AND MAYBE HE HAD NO ONE TO FEED HIM AND KEEP HIM INTOUCH. HE IS WRONG AND GOD'S PLAN WILL BE DONE IT IS ALREADY WORKED OUT AND WE ARE JUST WAITING TO SEE THE OUTCOME.PLEASE KEEP EVERYONE INVOLVED IN YOUR PRAYERS GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL!

Even the devil know's God's words. And your point not taken.
You must do more than talk good but live the life too.

Predators like him or as you said chemical imbalance (and he knews it) should not be handling people life.

Something is wrong with your thinking. He pick the profession probably to get close to future victims.

So, tell me; if if was your child Anon 11:17 pm. A grown man who suppose to have profess Christ, violate your daughter, Would you allow it to continue and for get about it (since he is a victim as you say too) or will it strike a nerve so hard? Or, you would sell your soul and your daughters soul for some cash and keep quiet?

I hate to see what you will really do.

Things that make you wonder!

I must say and you want to speak to Anon Rod, but what about DG wife and/or wifes. Hum?

This has gone on too long and he has not straighten himself out or change profession. DG must be stop, no ifs ands buts.

Pastor Rod H. said...

To Anon 11:28pm,a victim is one who suffers some wrong inflicted by another,who has victimized Darrell?You ask do I believe that Darrell preaches to be in the spotlight and to prey on women and children?The answer is an absolute YES!!!There is no chemical imbalance due to some childhood experience according to the women who raised him in a middle class lifestyle.Yes the bible does say that we all sin and fall short of GOD'S standards(Rom 3:23).But the Bible also states that "If anyone is in CHRIST he is a new creation;old things have passed away and behold the new has come"(2Cor.5:17).Think of all the great men and women of scripture such as Moses,Samuel,Elijah,Isaiah,Jeremiah,Paul,Peter,Paul,Mary(Jesus mother),Martha living a habitual life of anykind of sin.No none is perfect,but that does not change the fact that according to the Bible men and women are expected and required to lead santified lives and not live in habitual sin.Darrell's life over that pass 20 + years has demonstrated a pattern of behavior that according to the epistle of 1 John would relegate him to the status of and unbeliever.Anon 11:28 the Bible is are proof text in living and governing our lives(1tim.3:16-17)and what it says should be the standard we strive for;Darrell for the pass 20+ years has demonstrated no such pattern;He nust be stop from ever assuming the position of pastor ever again.

Tiffany Thigpen Croft said...

To Anon at 3:45 - Speaking of other young victims that can be substantiated, have you notified the States Attorney of these victims? You can remain anonymous if you'd like. I know there are many, but these may be some we haven't even heard ofyet. You can email me or call her office directly - Julie Schlax 630-2490 or Sex Crimes Detective Tillman 6304778.
Thank you for your help.

Responding to you, Tiffany, from 8:48am. I know that there have been at least 2 impregnated by him at around ages 16. Both families were paid hundreds of thousands to keep quiet and I'm sure signed some kind of confidentiality clause. the second was right before he so hurriedly had to get married. DG was no more thinking about getting a wife than anything ; he was having too much fun. He was encouraged to to keep down all these things that were floating around about his behavior. At least they could use that as leverage if single women came forward but what about the young ones.

As for all the people that keep saying all have sinned, Of course we have!! That is why we ALL need Jesus! The Bible CLEARLY states that if any person can live a LIFESTYLE of HABITUAL SIN they CANNOT KNOW GOD!!!! That is scriptual!!

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know the names of the teens that were impregnated back then?

Anonymous said...

We keep hearing about all of the other victim's of Gilyard, and I believe there are some, but where is all of the evidence? We have the case with the text messages, but hasn't anyone else come forward to build a case? What about the 16 year old with the journal of sexual encounters? That is a serious allegation. Has that allegtion been forgotten or dropped? It's been months, and not one more word has been said about it. It seems as though that would be the case that would put him away! If the journal exists, why hasn't he been charged based solely on the journal? After all, she is a minor!! I'm just very concerned there may be little justice served for the messages alone. Any thoughts?

ANON March 22, 2008 3:45 AM

Have patience. The process only works fast on TV, not in real life.

The text messages may not get him jail time but it will get him listed as a sexual predator. That crime has punished him in the community as far as not being around kids etc., but that is not the case in the church. Any church could call him to preach as the church is separate from the state and the church has no such rules against what he did, however the bible does.

Unfortunately we are living in a time where sin is covered and tolerated in the church arena today. Back in the day he never would have been a pastor after he and his wife divorced. Money overruled the gospel in this case.

He draws people with money and w/o money. He is an excellence orator and have helped a lot of people and have hurt a lot of people. Someone said it best on this blog, wolf in sheep's clothing. Counterfeit! It is my prayer that he is convicted and repent before God. There are churches willing to take him regardless of what he does, has done or will do in the future. That shows how sick we have become as a body of believers.

Can anyone tell me what happened in court on March 19th ?
There didn't seem to be any television or newspaper coverage.

Anonymous said...

Concerning the girls that got pregnant by him, did these girls have the babies? Because that would be proof right there to convict him with DNA test. Even if they signed a confidentialty paper THEY wouldn't have to SAY anything. If the courts was told about these offspring (if indeed they were allowed to live) the court could order that they be tested I would think. It seems so elementary. Does anyone have any clarity on this? I don't know what a prosecutor can and cannot do. I know Gilyard has Hank Coxe. Is there a prosecutor?

Tiffany Thigpen Croft said...

As far as court on the 19th, I did not attend due to safety (my husband couldn't be there with me that day). I am told nothing really happened that day and that is part of the process. That is why I posted a request for us to pray against delays that are so much allowed in our system.

As far as other victims, I ditto the writer at 3:45 - Patience. Believe me I know it is frustrating waiting, but it will come!

Next, names of other victims, if any of you know of someone victimized by him, especially young girls, please leave the names (even anonymously) with the Sex Crimes unit (Detective Tillman) or the SA Julie Schlax You can leave the name and they will follow up. It may be duplicate information they already have, or it may produce new evidence - it could be a very big help.

To all of you continuing to pray for these families and the victims, please continue more than ever! Please pray for the SA and all working on this case. God is who will really prevail here!

On a happy note, Happy Easter! Thank the Lord He is Risen and has made a way for us to be cleansed of our sins and enter the Gates of Heaven if we only ask and believe! No matter all the ugliness around us, we have much to rejoice over!!

When is the next scheduled court date ?

Anonymous said...

I said prosecutor, that may or may not be accurate. I looked it up and it says an official who prosecutes for the state. But do the people on the victim side have an attorney who is already working on their behalf and responsible for bringing these issues to light to support their client's case? Is their attorney aready coming befoe the judge as Hank Coxe is or is he or she not allowed yet? The court can order you to do something whether you want to or not that's what a subpoena is all about right? Order a paternity test for these children that he supposedly fathered.

AS PASTOR GILYARD WOULD ALWAYS SAY "AMAN BROTHER"

Tiffany can you advise when is the next scheduled court date.

Tiffany Thigpen Croft said...

As far as the next scheduled court date, I do not think there is one yet. I will post it when I know.

As far as paternity tests and subpoena's - it definitely can happen that way, but we have to have the names of the girls first.

I know he has fathered a child (of an adult woman) that she and her husband are raising. Because she is an adult, it is not necessary to drag them through it.

It is quite a mess.

Anonymous said...

Tiffany,

I do not know the actual names of these young ladies but it is no secret at church that this happened. The first girl was around 16 but encouraged to abort and that family was paid $300,000. Lots of monies have gone out the back door to cover DG. The people to ask would again be the deacons and trustess, but as you and I both know, good luck with getting the truth. They don't want to do anything to destroy him or land him in jail but they had to sever ties with him finally. Pastor Rod H may know since he was there at that time and would have been in a position to probably know.

Does anyone who reads this blog have any idea of when the next scheduled court date is ?

Anonymous said...

I find it so painful to read this blog and know that I was involved with a man that was capable of such horrible behavior. My involvement with Darrell was prior to his marriage and I'm saddened to know there were so many! I hope everyone involved with Darrell has been tested. I pray for the young and older victims, I pray for his wife and I pray for justice. I know there will be comments that say if you were an adult there was no crime and I agree, but there was sin. Yes, I have repented and asked for forgiveness and I hope my former Pastor does the same.

Pastor Rod H. said...

Anon March 22,2008 11:57pm I wish I knew any of those children's names I would have devulged them in a New York minute.As you know I and a handfull of others were a thorn in the side of Darrell and the Deacons who were covering for him.I overheard one prominent deacon says that a family was paid a settlement of several hundred thousand dollars but didn't disclose the familie's name.They never allowed me or anyone they perceived as threat to enter their inner circle.The deacon's and trustee's who have been there the longest and who have ascended to power know believe me they just not talking.I was asked to leave and literally thrown out aproximately 8-years ago for wanting to confront Darrell with allegations of sleeping with the wife of a member of my sunday school class and other allegation's of sexuaul misconduct.Also I have talked with Tiffany extensively about all I know concerning Darrell and Shiloh.

Anonymous said...

Dwayne (Goldie) was one of his bodyguards while he was sleeping with Ann (a Sunday school leader) and had a little girl impregnated. Ann was Moses Cobb girlfriend; they (the deacons) blocked MC from getting to Ann for DG can be with her. Later I heard Dwayne was a pastor of a small church. DG I heard was supposed to have wanted to marry Ann but immediately got married to his present wife not long after hearing he paid off the child family for having a baby (early 90's). I never got a name. I heard Dwayne stole again, first it was the Post Office (before becoming a deacon for DG) and then from the church (after being a body guard/deacon for DG) he was put up to pastor for. Dwayne father was then in some kind of official office.

This will not fade away until there is DG is stopped. He should never preach again. It's amazing how law is good for one person and not good enough for another (especially when you making them money). Some thought Dwayne was placed as a pastor in the church with DG help, for silence.

Well, I must say he cannot get away. He is arrogant/ lack respect for God and his people. He maybe fallen but he has no remorse and lacking the truth/light. The devil can speak well too you know. Predators are known to be good at whatever they need to be in order to get whatever they are after.

It's amazing that some of these folk try to play God. After three months has passed it looks like Shiloh has moved on but others are stuck in the Mississippi mud. In life we shall have trials and tribulations. Troubles will fall on the just and unjust. Quit trying to be Jesus and save the world! Tiff, turn this burden over to God. I'm sorry, but this battle IS NOT yours, it's the Lords as Yo Adams would sing. Some of these bloggers need to turn their attention to their neighborhoods and work to make our youth stronger.

I'm not going backwards with this case and my heart, thoughts and prayers go out to everyone as well. To me it doesn't matter if it's the neighbor down the street, a close relative or pastor, they ALL will dissappoint you with these type of actions on the youth.

If we continue to see anybody on the news talking about what should be done to these people and not have a game plan about a solution, then I should admit that your heart might not be in it!

Please wake up and remember that's it's NEVER about the preacher. He cannot get you into heaven. You have to read Romans 10:9 for yourselves.

Be blessed.

How do I find information as to what happened in court on March 19th and when is the next court date scheduled ?

Anonymous said...

Anon 11:40pm per the state attorneys office no court date has been scheduled. That's why you can't find a court date. When asked if the case is moving forward they said, "it will."

Well, unfortunately, right now it isn't at least in court. I don't know what happened on the 19th and wish you the best finding someone to give you that information. The SA's office is very tight-lipped and I almost didn't even get court date information. And that's all I called about. It was risky asking them if the case was moving forward. Whew! Goodness gracious!!

Tiffany Thigpen Croft said...

Nothing happened on the 19th. The next scheduled date will be released soon. I have been told to watch the news today. Channel 47/Fox 30.That is all I can say right now.

Please pray for the families involved, as this has to be so hard on them and it drags on and on.

The stall tactics is very common to discourage a person or give them enough time to tear down the victims. Do not be sway by this because others not known yet future victims are counting on you. Just stand and be vigilant. You must see this fight thru, not for potential future victims but more for yourself.
If you do not stand now, you will hurt your own self mentally and you will allow DG who is not willing to change goes on to hurt others. This will only make him more arrogant because he will feel he’s above the law and invincible. Anyone who is constantly committing the same sin over and over and over, allowed to self correct and still keep doing it over and over and over. Immediately went to preach at another church. He has not learned or willing to change.
If the victims do not stand now, I hope you know that this is not over for you. A violation as a young person has a way to reveal itself in every aspect of your life. A violation brings on unhealthy growth if not treated correctly and/or given the closure for healthy growth. As a parent, my job is to provide a safe environment for my child and foster healthy grown. Let them know that they will not abuse and they should never accept being violated under no circumstances. What happen to letting the child know they were not brought in this world for grown men to have their way with them? Why some no longer want healthy growth and think money or power is better than happiness? Why is its ok for someone to abuse our children and wife/mothers? When you borne that precious child or married that wife or look at your mother, Did you not look into their eyes and was overflowed with love. Well how in the world, can you tell them that it’s ok to be violated? How can you turn your head? How can you say a man is okay to hurt you because he is a preacher? How can we demean our love ones or even our love for our love ones to be a pimp for a preacher?
This I said to my child:
My child is not for sale ever. There is nothing no one can give me to allow someone hurt you. On my watch, my child you will always know I will protect you. I will not be pressure or fear anyone. Predators should fear ever attempting to hurt you. I will show you in my action and not just talk the talk. I will be able to live with myself and you will too. I want you to know you are someone special. You should not accept abuse from me nor anyone else. You are precious and so loved and I want you to always know and feel loved.
