Then we find the gift labeled “pastors and teachers.” In the original New Testament Greek, this is indeed a single gift, as the Phillips version translates it “to guide and to teach” (Ephesians 4:11). And we see this in the language itself. Our word “pastor” comes from the same root as “pasture.” In other words, a pastor is literally a shepherd. And a shepherd truly guides and teaches his flock. Those with the gift to guide and teach help Christians prosper and mature spiritually in their daily lives.
