An armor bearer is considered a servant and an assistant to the leader. Included in being a servant, one duty of an armor bearer is providing strength for the leader of the church. This means displaying an attitude of peace and faith at all times. The armor bearer must possess a strong respect for the leader, the leader's way of doing things and the leader's personality. Another duty of an armor bearer takes this thinking a step further. An armor bearer must try to understand the leader's thoughts. An armor bearer must be willing to be submissive to the leader at all times, to God and to people.
