Proistamenos (from Greek, "the one who presides") is the title of the priest or bishop who is in charge of a parish or in an administrative leadership position in a theological seminary or academy.

Less commonly, rector (from Latin, regere, "to rule") is used in some jurisdictions to mean roughly the same thing.
