    Thank you for this message. I am introverted with moderate social anxiety. I'm prone to panic attacks, lol. I have been thinking for awhile now that I think my true platform could be digital. Even before I was saved, I've had a goal of starting a blog to help people with similar issues to mine. Since then, I want to do that same thing but incorporate God and my faith into it so that hopefully, I can reach other people through my written words, which is much more of a strong suit for me. That's not to say i wont ever actually speak to people about God. It will likely be just as you said, on a one-on-one sort of private basis.

    True! I don`t like talking too much so the internet has been my evangelical ground along with social media. My blog already reached 114 countries all because of God`s mighty hand. Simply liking and sharing a bible verse, blog or video can change someone`s life as it changed me through the internet! Pray to God that He might use you for His name sake. God bless you brothers and sisters in faith!

    Sorry this is long. I am giving my testimony on how God used an introvert with bad grammar to preach the gospel and have articles published.

    I am very much an introvert, and I also feel like God has called me to be an evangelist. I would question God why he would place the two together. I found my calling by starting to write emails to my family. I would tell them Jesus is coming soon, and they needed to have a relationship with him. This did not go over well with everyone I was emailing so then took some of the things I wrote and started a blog. One day I wrote a Christmas card to my neighbor and put my blog card in there. I did not know him well because I am an introvert. Well, he owns a Christian radio station and wanted me to do radio segments. I could not do a live segment because I was too nervous so he had me do pre-recorded segments and now airs them on the station. I would write everything I wanted to say down and eventually submitted a couple for publication.

    I don’t have to preach in person. I just hand people my card when I go to a restaurant or a service man comes over. I include a nice tip when I do that. God has lead people from all over the world to read my blog, articles, and listen to my radio segments. If we have a desire to serve God, he will lead you into your calling. It may not happen right away because I felt like I went through a training process and I spent lots of time in the Word before I was able to preach it. Don’t be discouraged if you are willing to follow, God he will lead you. I would suggest reading and making comments on YouTube videos. People will reach out with questions and for help over comments. A lot of them will respond, and I have preached Jesus to people over back and forth over YouTube comments.
    God Bless, Jenny

    It really seems that society looks down on introverts, just see how people respond to you if you're quiet or not talkative. Its always made out as something negative.

    Don't beat yourself up, we live under Grace NOT the Law.

    I can testify that even though I am very introverted (INFJ on the Briggs-Meyers personality test) God has used me to "garden" amongst those who are truly seeking. My goal is to be a gardener a la Columbo/Greg Koukl and a "one-dollar" apologist. Before I was a Christian I would never lead anything. Now that I am I lead small groups and teach apologetics at the church I serve at. I never liked reading before I was a Christian now I read a lot. The Christain life can only be lived in the power of the Spirit. Be willing and be filled with the Spirit and you will do things you never thought possible.

    There are many behind the scenes jobs need to support evangelism, which would be perfect for introverts. Furthermore, anyone can give out tracts or Bibles, without long discussions. And last, but not least, introverts can pray for both evangelists and people who need to come to Jesus.

    I'm the opposite of what you talked about. I am super shy, terrified of one-on-one conversations with people I don’t know well. But I am right at home talking in front of large groups! Most people are afraid to get up and talk in front of people. Ha! I say, let me at 'em! Give me an audience of ten individuals or ten thousand, and I'm good to go! Is that weird or what!? But you are right when you say God can use us in the situation we are in, and He can put us in situations where He can use us!

    The prophet Jeremiah was an introvert, a depressed introvert. And so was Moses to some extent because he stuttered he didn’t want to speak anyone except his family & friends. Jesus told the disciples before their first missions trip not worry about what to say, He would give them the words. I’m an introvert & some how always get my motor running & away me & Jesus go 🙌🏻

    I'm a huge introvert but I love Christian apologetics and the Bible and I could talk endlessly on the subject. I've still managed to try to make the case for the resurrection to various coworkers, including an Afgan coworker that was chained to a tree by Muslims in Afghanistan and forced to accept Islam or face death. The guy hated any form of religion but I still tried to evangelize to him, albeit unsuccessfully. Another guy I worked with flat-out stated that he hated Christianity and there was nothing I could do to change his mind. I still managed to engage him and I was able to chip away at some of his skepticism about the resurrection of Jesus. I was able to quickly offer some of the evidences for the resurrection to him, such as the empty tomb, conversion of Paul, etc. and I could tell it made an impact on him. I find the resurrection of Jesus to be such an interesting subject that I really can't help but to tell others about it, despite my introversion.

    Moses was apparently an introvert and look how God used him.

    Wonderful!! I know many introverts who genuinely love the Lord Jesus and this is so encouraging for them😊 our God uses all sorts to accomplish his purposes.

    As an extreme introvert, after I've sifted through all the opinionated meatheads, phone zombies and angry atheists, I'm exhausted and completely fed up. If someone would actually listen I would talk all day but apparently everyone already knows everything.

    There are many extroverts who don't share their faith — I work with an outgoing Christian woman who uses her vacation time to go on short term missions to Central America. But one of her co-workers and a good friend of hers had to find Christ in a book he read. This lady had worked side-by-side with the man (an agnostic) for many years but she had never shared the Gospel or God's word with him or invited him to church. Is that something remarkable or is it that we all just have different gifts — and that even all of our gifts and our faith are gifts from him — he whose will be done — done by him and through him …

    Myers-Briggs has been debunked. It's bogus science and a bogus secular worldview. Actually, all personality tests have been debunked. By secular experts.

    Repent of your secular identity and come back to who Jesus says you are according to the Bible.

    How often does something like this happen?! I'm looking at the bookcase behind J. Warner Wallace, and then looking at our own. Looking up at his again….looking at ours again….SAME BOOKS! His are much newer, and in better shape, since we inherited these. My father collected them probably in the fifties or sixties; I'm not sure exactly when, but it was before I was born, a long, long time ago 😆 But they're the exact same books! The Britannica "Great Books" series. Great minds, LOL! Mind blown.
