List of famous pastors with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

‘Pastor’ in Latin means, ‘shepherd’, so in layman’s terms, a pastor is one who takes care of his or her ‘flock’ or looks after a particular congregation apart from carrying out other services of the church. They are also the ordained leaders and speakers of large Christian congregations and churches. Although the terms ‘pastors’ and ‘preachers’ are used interchangeably, there is vast difference between the two. While preachers convey sermons and other discourses to a large audience, they are not directly involved in managing and caring for the people they preach to. However, the role of a pastor includes that of a preacher and he/she is also involved in caring for the people of the church. The title of a pastor is usually given to an individual who has obtained a degree in religious studies or theology and is thus, an official role in the church, unlike preachers, who are known more for their oratory qualities. Apart from carrying out pastoral duties and looking after their role in the church, pastors are also involved with executing community-related functions. While pastors may be preachers, not all preachers become pastors. Here is a list of famous pastors. Go through their biographies, which include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.
