Gray, Andrea, and Leith Gray. “Paradigms and Praxis (Part 1): Social Networks and Fruitfulness in Church Planting.” International Journal of Frontier Missiology 26, no. 1 (2009):19-28.The Grays reviewed interviews with 33 church planters in the Muslim world. Their analysis revealed that social networks are at the heart of missiological paradigms. The practices a worker engages in seem to be determined by his or her view or mental model of what the church is and the relationship between the church, the gospel and the local community. There are two main models of church that workers are influenced by, here referred to as the attractional model and the transformational model.
