As churches experience growth, one of the biggest challenges comes in the form of learning to delegate tasks. Dale said that a crucial part of this process is handing over responsibility to others, not simply tasks. The former creates a sense of ownership in others so that they commit to the work without being asked. As you survey your ministry context, look for opportunities to delegate responsibility to others in order to develop greater leadership in the church.
