It used a multistage development of scale process where a survey was done and 50 participants participated in filling the questionnaire, which cut across ministers, workers, members, others. The results of the exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factors analysis shows the multi-stage nature of spiritual mentorship within the church management. Four dimensions were identified: competencies identifications, executive development, top management support, and organizational structure. The study provides evidence of validity and reliability of the scale. The scale offers a new approach to measure operational efficiency within the church management and also shows the need to go beyond the traditional approach to efficiency. Theories adopted to aid this research work were discussed in this paper.
