"There is no finer example for Christian leadership than our Lord Jesus Christ. He declared, 'I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep' (John 10:11). It is within this verse that we see the perfect description of a Christian leader. He is one who acts as a shepherd to those “sheep” in his care. Without a sheperd, the sheep are helpless." -www.gotquestions.org
