I'm creating a database that will include many types of people, and am faltering on the best way to classify "clergypeople". I'd prefer not to have separate entries for Deacon, Pastor, Priest, Preacher, Reverend, etc. "Clergyperson" or "Clergy" seems technically ok, but I'm wondering if there's a more mainstream word that's just not coming to mind.
Update: Thanks all for the feedback. The context is pretty simple, more or less just tags that can be associated with an individual, for example:
Architect, Builder, Athlete, Entertainer, Plantation Owner, Artist, etc.
At this point I'm leaning toward "Clergy", but a better synonym (that I don't want to use) would be "leader of church", i.e. I'm more concerned with aggregating the terms I originally listed above than including nuns/monks, etc.
As @Peter Turner pointed out, cleric is really the best fit, but it sounds too medieval for this application.
Thanks for all the input. Ultimately, I think Clergy is going to work, so I'll accept that answer. "Church Leader" is a little more specific than I originally asked for, but I'm going to consider using that as well...
