I don’t know how many or what percent Introverts make up the American Church. I am guessing it may reach over 50% and probably closer to 60%. How is it possible to reach new people? I like what Adam McHugh, author of Introverts in the church, said:
Introverted seekers need introverted evangelists. It’s not that extroverts can’t communicate the gospel, either verbally or non-verbally, in ways that introverts find appealing, it’s that introverted seekers need to know and see that it’s possible to lead the Christian life as themselves. It’s imperative for them to understand that becoming a Christian is not tantamount with becoming an extrovert.
Today’s prayer for our ministry and your life is wrapped around the practice of making spiritual conversations normal to all of us:
Lord, make __________ heart’s desire to see people come to Christ (Rom. 10:1). In Jesus name, Amen.
Sinclair Ferguson said it best, “We best defend the Lord’s glory by speaking first TO Him about unbelieving men rather than speaking first ABOUT Him to unbelieving men.”
