Rev. Betty Deas Clark, First Female Pastor Of Emanuel AME Church, Has Been Reassigned After Five Months On The Job.


Reader, I wonder what this is about, she only been on the job for five months. The Post and Courier newspaper is reporting that the Rev. Dr. Betty Deas Clark was moved from Mother Emanuel Tuesday (6/21/16) and transferred to Bethel AME Church in Georgetown, South Carolina. The Rev. Dr. Betty Deas Clark was the first female pastor to lead Mother Emanuel AME Church.

  1. That's the nature of the AME Church. It doesn't mean she wasn't a good pastor or they there's anything wrong at the church. The presiding Bishop made the decision with consultation with her. It's actually a good move

  2. Lorenzo thanks for the comment. I do understand some AME churches do do this but I always thought that the pastor at least stayed a year at a location. I guess not.

    1. It's not uncommon to be at a church for a year it less. I've served a church six months before being appointed elsewhere. All appointments are annual and can be adjusted anytime during the year at the discretion of the presiding and most times those adjustments are upward promotions.

  3. Ann I agree typically, AME pastors spend several years with a church before a reassignment. This seems odd.
