Leadership and dependency are Orthogonal
Jesus Christ was the biggest dependent around:
Jesus replied, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head." Matt 8:20.
As much as He was a descendent of Judah, He had no property much like the priestly line of Levi. Yet, He was and still is the Son of God. The King of Kings.
So being dependent on the Father ("Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" Matt 6:26) doesn't make one less of a leader: just the opposite, a true leader depends on others (and delegates responsiblities, too).
