Do Seventh-day Adventists call their leader pastor?
A Seventh-day Adventist who becomes a Christian minister of the gospel within that denomination is called a "pastor" or a "minister". He or she is not usually called "reverend" and is never called "father" (pastors have very little in common with Catholic priests).
