What's the difference between a pastor, minister, missionary, evangelist and elder
These terms are widely used, but are the differences that regulate their use? What, for example, is the difference between a minister and a missionary, or a pastor and an evangelist, or a pastor and an elder.
How would I explain these differences to others, like my children (or uneducated local church-people).
