What do you call a Methodist Pastor? I am Jewish and my Fiance is Methodist. I need to address our Methodist Preacher’s invitation and I don’t know the proper way. I especially have no idea what to properly call him.

I’m actually kind of in the same situation. I am methodist & I’m not even exactly sure how i’m going to do it.
We have had a couple pastors since i’ve grown up.
I’m picturing a simple:
Pastor Pam Baker
Paster David Gord & Kim Gord.
I’m from a very small town church though. So simple is okay here.

I work at a United Methodist Church. Here are the options…
Rev. and Mrs. John Smith
Revs. John and Jane Smith (if they are both pastors – I had to address two like this)
Rev. Jane Smith and Dr. John Smith
Rev. Jane Smith and Mr. John Smith
If they are a Local Licensed Pastor, I think they are technically supposed to be called Pastor not Reverend, but I didn’t go that far. I was also supposed to probably write out Reverend, but I chose not to because I was really tired of hand-addressing envelopes by the time I got to my co-workers.

how do i find out if he is locally licensed? his card says Paster, then his name….?

If his card says Pastor, that is just fine. I wouldn’t sweat it or anything. Just don’t put Mr. and I think it will be correct.
