This paper presents the results of a research study that examined determinants of job satisfaction, among a group of faculty and administrators in a Christian university. With a sample N =113 made up of administrators and faculty members, the findings indicated significant differences between administrators and faculty in overall job satisfaction in the areas of achievement, advancement, growth and work itself. The study also indicated that there is no statistically significant difference between the administrators and faculty and their religious and organizational commitments. As the multiple regression analysis to determine how well a linear combination of the 15 measures of job satisfaction predicted organizational commitment, the larger regression model at F(15,91)= 3.88,p <.0001,found salary (p= .021) as the only significant predictor, whereas a restricted multiple regression result suggest that the strongest predictors of organizational commitment are salary(31.3%) followed by achievement(23.8%) and advancement(21.4%).
