  Anglican terminology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The clergy is a term applied widely across many religions, while clergyman has connotations at least of Protestantism: while a priest might be Catholic, Anglo-Catholic or Orthodox Christian.
A preacher, from the Anglican point of view, is a colloquialism used for a clergyman rather than a formal title — or it may be someone who preaches.
A cleric: the same as clergyman, and the same root etymologically speaking, but the very old meaning as clerk might simply be someone literate.

 17. “A Clergyman” by Max Beerbohm. Morley, Christopher, ed. 1921. Modern Essays

 Volume 5 - Opinions of Counsel SBEA No. 124
While the taking of a secular employment does not of itself deprive a clergyman of the exemption, the fact to be resolved is whether in such a situation it can still be said that the clergyman is "engaged in the work assigned to him by the church or denomination of which he is a member."
If the assessor is satisfied that the clergyman's primary activity is his ministry and that he is only engaged in secular employment to obtain supplemental income for the support of himself and his family, it would appear that he would be justified in granting this exemption.
Thus, if the clergyman and the non-clergyman each own an equal interest as tenants in common, the exemption would apply to 50 percent of the assessment of the property representing the separate interest of the clergyman which cannot exceed the statutory maximum limitation of $1,500.
