Introverts in an Extraverted Church

August 2, 2011

Introverts make up almost half of our population, however, in our culture it is extraversion that is preferred. In fact, the evangelical church is very extraverted in its orientation.

That puts great pressure on those that are introverted as well as marginalizing them within the church which is a loss to them as well as the church.

Pastor Adam McHugh, an introvert, has an excellent book,Introverts in the Church, Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture on how to better engage introverts in the church as well as great advice on how introverts should engage.  Well worth the read if you lead or pastor introverts.
