      Paul just a missionary?

      Was Paul just a missionary or would he also be considered a pastor?

      He was a missionary, but also an apostle. Part of that is his role in starting churches and getting them established and then passing the leadership off to the local believers.

      Were any of the Apostles also pastors?
      Certainly they were shepherds of the established churches. They were evangelists. They were teachers.
      God had given them gifts to accomplish their roles wherever they traveled. I don't know what title they used, other than Apostle.
      Lamm, your question makes me wonder about Peter as the Roman Church dubs him the first pope, yet there is no reference to him even being in Rome within the Bible. Can we crown a person in the Bible with a title that the Bible doesn't give them?

      Perhaps it's "or something."
      The RCC and EOC have created so many non-verifiable stories that one cannot trust their claims. This is why fiction writer after fiction writer use these churches stories to create mystery and intrigue. Dan Brown is probably the most notorious when considering contemporary fiction.

      It is generally believed and indicated by history that Peter was in Rome. Whether his bones have been discovered is something else. And, yes, it is true that the Bible does not say anything about Peter and Rome. In fact, though, that has nothing to do with the claims of the RCC itself about the Papal office or the Rock or any of that. The claim is about Peter, not Rome.

      I didn't have Rome in mind at all when I started this thread

      He was an Apostle, who Evangellized the Faith establishing Churches wherever he went, appointing Bishops and Presbyters and Deacons, consecrating them to Ekklesiastical Service...

      The Apostolic Calling of God is a rare Gift...

      It is one Paul entreats us to emulate...
