What God says to you is not up for discussion with your leader.

As a man or woman of God, God calls you alone for a purpose He want to accomplish. Acts 22:9-10 “And those who were with me indeed saw the light and were afraid, but they did not hear the voice of Him who spoke to me. So I said, ‘What shall I do, Lord?’ And the Lord said to me, ‘Arise and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all things which are appointed for you to do.’
While you serve under another person’s ministry, you are still under their authority but once you are released, God becomes the head. 1 Samuel 3:17-18 “What did the LORD say to you? Tell me everything. And may God strike you and even kill you if you hide anything from me!” So Samuel told Eli everything; he didn’t hold anything back. “It is the LORD’s will,” Eli replied. “Let him do what he thinks best.”
It’s important to have a mentor as a guide but they are not there to direct the ship. You have a mentor so you can draw from their experience to avoid mistakes they made but they must not control your ministry

There must be boundaries in the ministry to create order. God gave an instruction to Moses and even when He came down from the mountain, He was to speak to Moses, the people were just witnesses in the conversation. Exodus 19:12 Mark off a boundary all around the mountain. Warn the people, ‘Be careful! Do not go up on the mountain or even touch its boundaries. Anyone who touches the mountain will certainly be put to death.
