Women finding their place as church leaders

From Louisiana-

When Linda Baker first recognized her calling, someone told her she misunderstood God's intention.

The Minden native was serving in a teaching ministry at one of the larger churches in Ruston where she held yearly workshops. God's calling comes when it comes, and her heart told her she was needed as a pastor.

But a pastor at that church thought it best she discuss her newly-intended vocation with him first.

"I was coming as a teacher, and he said he could not allow this," she said. Now Rev. Baker is pastor of Mays Chapel CME Church in Ruston.
