  1. The word “pastor” only appears one time and it is a mistranslation. Eph 4:11 Greek word is “poiminas” English word is “Shepherd” That is one of the to jobs of Elders in Acts 20:28 and 1 Peter 5:1. The other job is to oversee. This job is a group of elders not one man. Pastor is a latin word that has been used to keep one man rule rather than elders as Paul said twice. Appoint elders in every city and again appoint elders in every church.
