More fun with statistics

In 2006, the Presbyterian Church (USA) had 447 congregations with greater than 8oo members.

17 of those 447 congregations had women Senior Pastors or Co-Pastors.

Yes, 3.8% of these large churches had women leading their staff.

Whoop-de-do. Less than 4%.

Information from the research services office.

    My mama actually goes to one of the 3.7%. Of course, they're co-pastors. Guess who does most of the preaching?

    this inspired me to go look at louie crew's page, who keeps unofficial data of the episcopal church. his data is almost 10 years old, but it's pretty depressing: women are less likely to be rectors (head of staff), regardless of the congregation's size, than any other subgroup. blah. i have to admit i didn't realize i would still be a trailblazer when i got into this.
