Allen, Don. “Our Story in His Story: A Case Study on the Use of Mixed Methods Research to Equip Workers for Engaging Muslims.” Proceedings of the Sixth Lausanne Researchers International Network Conference. Sao Paolo, Brazil, 2010. Given the many contexts of ministry among Muslims, which practices tend to impact the emergence, vitality, and reproduction of fellowships among Muslim background disciples of Jesus Christ? This paper describes the use of a mixed methods approach to address this question among a network of cross-cultural workers focusing on the Muslim world. We focus on activities and results since reporting on this project at the Fifth Lausanne Researchers International Network Conference in 2008 (D. B. Allen 2008, Fish 2008, Greenlee 2008). In addition to describing the methods and the process, we will also describe the current phase of the project and several lessons that we have learned. Finally, we explain some of our findings and actionable resources for field workers.
