dc.description.abstractThis study investigated the relation between job demands and resources, psychological conditions, religious coping and work engagement of Reformed Church ministers. A cross-sectional survey design was used. Participants were 115 Reformed Church ministers (age range = 25 to 65, Afrikaans and males = 115). They completed the Job Demands Resources Questionnaire, Psychological Conditions Questionnaire, Work Engagement Scale and Religious Coping Questionnaire. Data were analyzed using multiple regression analyses. The results of this study suggest that psychological availability and psychological meaningfulness were strong predictors of work engagement. Psychological meaningfulness was best explained by the perceived intrinsic nature of the job. Psychological availability was best explained by low pace/amount of work, social support, autonomy, and religious coping. High emotional demands, congregational and social support, religious coping and psychological availability were statistically significant predictors of work engagement. Psychological meaningfulness mediated the relation between the intrinsic nature of the job and work engagement.en_US
