Poimen

(ποιμήν ), i.e. pastor, is a name given to ministers of the Gospel in the New-Testament writings and by the early Church. It is a term recommended by the circumstance that Christ had compared himself to a shepherd and his people to a flock; and the apostle Peter had called him the Chief Shepherd. (See PASTOR).
