Which ecclesiological perspectives are implied in volunteer ministry? In order to answer this question, we conceptualize four aspects implied in it: the kind of activities preferred by volunteers, their motivation, their inspiration and their perception of the ecclesiastical context in which they work. After analyzing the data collected from a sample of 297 pastoral volunteers in The Netherlands, we formulate, hypothetically, the following ecclesiological conclusion. The conception of the church underlying volunteer ministry implies: communicating, advancing humanity, experientially believing, and religiously interpreting the church's changing religious functions.
