Mother Emanuel A.M.E welcomes first female pastor

Mother Emanuel A.M.E will be hosting a handover ceremony this morning to welcome it's new pastor.

We're told Reverend Dr. Betty Deas Clark has been named the new pastor of the historic church where nine worshipers were shot and killed back in June. 

This is the first time in the church's history that a woman will be the pastor of the church.

Reverend Norvel Goff was named interim pastor of the church in June. He will now be running for bishop. 

Reverend Doctor Betty Deas Clark will preach her first sermon at the church at 9:30 this morning.
