Formatted abstract
There is anecdotal evidence of a shortage of quality volunteer leaders in churches. It is hypothesised that this is because there in inadequate investment in volunteer leadership development. This research brings empirical evidence to bear on this hypothesis. Using a survey of Queensland Baptist pastors it is concluded that pastors are moderately satisfied with the number of volunteer leaders in their churches, but less so with the quality. However, even though moderately satisfied, they are more likely to indicate that their churches do not have enough volunteer leaders to operate as effectively as they would like. Churches that have better volunteer leadership training have more and better leaders, regardless of church size. The quality of church leadership grows with increasing church size. An effective but underutilised method of leadership training is discipleship programs especially for leaders.
