Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Parrish, Tracey Lynn, Ph.D., University of Phoenix, 2009, 119; 3381827
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative correlational research study was to explore the relationship between leadership styles among Baptist church leaders and the levels of participation among their respective church members. A sample consisting of Baptist Church leaders in the State of Texas were surveyed using the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) to determine their level of Transformational, Transactional, or Passive Avoidant Leadership style. Several bivariate Pearson correlations were calculated to determine if there were significant relationships among the church leaders level of transformational leadership, transactional leadership, passive avoidant leadership, number of church members, and number of active church members. The results of the study were inconclusive in determining if a positive or negative relationship existed as it pertained to leadership style and member activeness.
