While determining the sample group, purposeful and random sampling methods were used and 262 religious officials working in the province of Mardin were reached in this way. In accordance with the research purposes, t test and One Way Variance Analysis tests were used. According to the results of the research, the average self-confidence level of religious officials was determined.
