Most leaders seek to increase individual and organizational productivity, but low levels of spiritual leadership could inhibit the organizational effectiveness of nonprofit and religious organizations substantially populated by volunteers. An examination of social networking in team building in this quantitative research study determined if organizing teams increased levels of spiritual leadership and productivity in a United Pentecostal Church International church. A quantitative methodology with an experimental research design incorporated one control group and two treatment groups to test the two independent variables of Fry’s (2003) vision and stakeholder analysis and the Bryan Team Development Networking model (Bryan, 2003) with the Fry spiritual leadership assessment instrument and a performance task. Testing the data revealed no significant causality upon levels of spiritual leadership. A significant causal relationship was found between team development networking and productivity. The research results support systemic intervention as a transformational intervention at the local church level as an effective way to develop leaders and increase organizational productivity.
