I don't have any direct experience with your research interests.
However, my doctoral research is tangentially related to some of
My doctoral research looked at the interconnections between churches
in one Canadian community.I was primarily exploring the relationship
between connectivity and church characteristics and comparing how
different types of churches interacted with local religious social
services. I am happy to tell you more about it if you think it might
be useful to your research.
