Sociology looks at how people behave socially as groups and what factors contribute to social changes.
Here are some possibilities:
1. Use the following databases to see if any relevant sociological studies have been done on populations you would like to study: ex. clergy, churches/denominations, students, veterans, etc.
2. Use the following databases to find sociological studies investigating a factor (or multiple factors) related to the transformation or social change you wish to see in your ministry. Note: If you can't find your exact ministry area in particular, look at similar or parallel contexts (health care, counseling, teaching), and in your paper you can (read: should) address any differences between these contexts and your ministry.
