Just ask him! You can just ask how he would like to be introduced and ta-da you’ve got your answer :e)

In the Christian tradition, protestant ministers are not typically referred to as priests.  My understanding is that it’s usually reserved for Catholic, Orthodox, Episcopalian/Anglican ministers.  I second TallBride’s suggestion though.  Depending upon the church and the minister, I’ve heard several variations on how ministers are addressed (e.g., Pastor Tom vs. Reverend Tom, etc.), so best to be sure you’re correct!

It is usually pastor for protestants, sometimes elder, but I agree to ask.

I don’t think pastor is for all protestants. I’m protestant (united), and ministers go by "Reverend Tom", but I’ve only had a "Pastor Tom" when at another church service (baptist). I’m sure that your minister will not be offended if you ask.

P.S. No such thing as a dumb question 🙂

I am pretty sure Revered will work for any protestant minister! I am baptist and though we typically call our minister "Pastor So-and-So" he also goes by Reverend. This applies for every protestant denomination, I believe.
