It must also be remembered that Assistant shepherds are part of the fold and not above it. In Acts 20:28, Paul tells the Ephesian elders that they are among the sheep. In 1 Peter 5:2, he reminds the elders of the church that they live in the midst of the flock (i.e., “among you”). Shepherd-elders and the sheep are to have a mutual accountability with one another (1 Thessalonians 5:12; 1 Timothy 5:20; Hebrews 13:17). So leaders are shepherds yet they are also sheep.
