The tools of the study were the four questionnaires; spiritual leadership, psychological empowerment, positive ethical ambience and organizational citizenship behavior. The validity of the questionnaire was confirmed from the perspective of scholars and their reliability was confirmed by Cranach. To analyze the data, the method of modeling structural equations was used.

Results: The findings show that psychological empowerment can play the intermediary role between spiritual leadership and organizational citizenship behavior. Positive ethical ambience, however, cannot play the intermediary role in this relationship and increases organizational citizenship behavior.

Conclusion: The findings show that spiritual leadership by creating feelings such as confidence, sacrifice and dedication motivates the staff to perform beyond their ordinary duties; and in spite of the existence of a relationship between ethical ambience and organizational citizenship behavior according to past studies, positive ethical ambience cannot play an intermediary role in the relationship between spiritual leadership and organizational citizenship behavior.
