The purpose of the current study was to determine whether correlations existed between toxic leadership, transformational leadership, and mentorship effectiveness. A total of 252 licensed and ordained leaders in the African American Pentecostal Church were surveyed. The Mentorship Effectiveness Scale, Global Transformational Leadership Scale, and Schmidt’s Toxic Leadership Scale comprised the combined instrument. The current study found significant inverse/negative correlations between toxic leadership and mentorship effectiveness and toxic leadership and transformational leadership. A statistically significant positive relationship was shown between transformational leadership and mentorship effectiveness. Results of simple and multiple regressions indicated that overall toxic leadership is a predictor of mentorship effectiveness. Mann-Whitney U Test found significant differences in mentorship effectiveness between the median levels of toxic leadership and transformational leadership. The current study fills a gap in the literature on the presence of toxic leadership in ministry.
