Leaders are called by God to help guide his people into all truth. "Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith" (Hebrews 13:7). Leaders have the responsibility and calling to encourage, guide, and lead God's peculiar people.
"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light"
1 Peter 2:9
