Numbers 27:19 And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.
As they made leadership choices, they did it before the spiritual leader and the congregation. It wasn’t done in a back room. It was known to all. It was clearly stated who was in leadership.
We can learn so much by just reading the Scriptures. God chose. The spiritual leaders recognized this. The congregation saw it all. The man was given a charge, instruction, a challenge as he began his ministry.
This is similar to what happens in an ordination service. It is doing all things in the light. Making it clear that we believe in the person that God has called forward.
