Only once in the New Testament is an elder called "pastor". That is simply a very limited "job description" of part of what an elder does. The actual "title" is ELDER who may teach, shepherd, administrate/oversee, evangelize, etc. But for years we've been calling the elders in our Baptist churches as "pastor" as if it is THE formal title instead of a single-use term. At my church, I am the "teaching elder". We have two other "elders', one of whom is gifted in administration and another in counseling. Of course, here in Mormon country, every snot-nosed 20-year old in a white shirt is called "elder", since they haven't a clue about the Bible, either. What does your church do in calling an elder by title? Pastor? Preacher? Bishop? Reverend? Brother?
