The preacher at my church has a 13 year-old daughter and im 16 , its well known throughout the church that she and I like each other , her age doesn't bother me , but her dad being the preacher gives me an uneasy feeling , my mom says not to go for it but I really like her , do you think I should go for it , or just have another friend?

I'd say one thing you should do it talk with your mom more. Find out why she said not to go for her. Contrary to popular belief amongst children, parents pretty much never intentionally steer their kids in the wrong direction and have wisdom that's worth listening to.
I know it's only 3 years but the developmental difference between a 13 and 16 year old can be huge. I know for me there was a huge difference in my maturity and outlook from 13 to 16.
Also remember if her dad seems uneasy and that's not just a misperception, than it's going to be a bit of an uphill battle seeing her if he's against it. You'll have to win him over too.
Ultimately I think you'll have to carefully evaluate everything and go from there. I can't give you a straight answer without more info.1
