CHARLESTOWN — The Charlestown Post And Courier is reporting about a rising trend of females taking senior positions in Black churches across America.

These women, and many others throughout the Lowcountry, are part of a trend in the black church. Increasingly, women are seeking ordination and assuming senior leadership positions in the region’s AME, Presbyterian, Baptist and nondenominational churches.
