  • Five suspended employees of a Tulsa megachurch charged with waiting more than two weeks to report the alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl will be returning to the ministry by the end of the month with different responsibilities.
     
    Victory Christian Center pastor Bruce Edwards made the announcement during this weekend's services.
     
    John and Charica Daugherty, who are the son and daughter-in-law of ministry co-founder and head pastor Sharon Daugherty, are among those charged. The others are Paul Willemstein, Anna George and Harold "Frank" Sullivan.
     
    All five have pleaded not guilty and are due in court Oct. 31.
     
    A church spokesman says the two departments the five employees worked in have been restructured to add a direct supervisor above each of them.
     
    Victory is a worldwide ministry that claims 17,000 members.
