Several wonderful things happen when you delegate well:
You affirm that the church is all the people of the church; it is not your private fiefdom/kingdom.
You develop ownership for the ministry among others, which happens to be one of the keys to obeying and implementing Ephesians 4.
You open channels for the flow of much more energy, creativity, and joyful service.
You provide greater margin in your personal life and ministry, allowing you to focus on excellence in your own priority ministries.
You enhance your followership quotient; that is, when people see that you are not the “emperor, micro manager, ogre-leader” they are much more willing to volunteer and serve wholeheartedly.
You model the very quality of leadership you want and need others in the church to exhibit, mobilizing others to get involved and have ownership of ministry in the church.
You become a better pastor and yourself develop a larger sense of trust in others.
