    答:Reverend n. (名詞 noun)教士,牧師[C]

    The term the Reverend is used as an honorary prefix to the names of many Christian clergy and ministers.

    the Presbyterian Church in Ireland and United Church of Canada, when ordained clergy, are styled "the Right Reverend" during their year of service and "the Very Reverend" afterwards. Church ministers are styled "the Reverend". Moderators of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) are styled simply "the Reverend".

    American Lutheran Churches

    "Pastor" (such as "Pastor Smith" in more formal address or "Pastor John" in less formal) rather than using "Reverend"; however, "the Reverend" is also commonly used, particularly in written communication. In other Protestant traditions "Pastor" and "the Reverend" are variously used, with much regional and denominational variation.

    Some Christians, particularly members of the Churches of Christ and some Baptist groups, reject using the term "reverend" for human beings and maintain that it should be reserved for God alone. The word "reverend" is used only once in most translations of the Bible:

    Pastor n. (名詞 noun)(基督教的)本堂牧師

    We have no pastor at present: the church is run by five deacons.

    我們目前沒有牧師:教會的事是由五位執事管理的。

    A pastor is an elder of a Christian church. The word itself is derived from the Latin word pastor which means shepherd. Pastor, shepherd and elder are the same, but are not synonymous with preacher or minister. The qualifications for an elder (also called Pastor, shepherd, or overseer) can be found in I Timothy 3: 1-14;Titus 1:5-9.

    In the New Testament, The word is used 18 times in the New Testament. For example, Ephesians 4:11

    From this principle the Churches of Christ typically refer to their preachers as "ministers" or "evangelists" and some Baptists use the term "minister" or "pastor".
