How can I delegate permission for software user to create new project without delegate him jira administrator permission?

I separated permission between jira system administrator and jira administrator. 

I need give permission for create new project for our team lead.

I don`t want to give him jira administrator permission... becouse if i delegate him the Jira administrator permission he will have permission to delete other projects and change  group of user etc.

But I need give permission for create new project. How can i do that?

I not sure, but you could try to use Global permission for specified group. Documentation:https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira064/managing-global-permissions-720412521.html#ManagingGlobalPermissions-sysadmin

Pay attention to the point "About 'JIRA System Administrators' and 'JIRA Administrators'"

You can't.  To create projects, you have to be a JIRA administrator or a JIRA System administrator.

There are some add-ons which can delegate the rights to users though.

Thank for the answer! Could you give some link? Or maybe you are remember their names?

I tend to do it by hand with script-runner scripts myself, so I'm a bit vague on specific add-ons.

I think typing "delegate" into https://marketplace.atlassian.com/ will get the ones I'm thinking of.  I can't really say I'm experienced enough with any of them to strongly recommend any specific one, but on the basis of other add-ons, I'd start with anything by Wittified
