I was wondering how you ministers work with introverts and extroverts in your church. My experience is that most ministers are extroverts and sometimes have little understanding of introverts. I am an introvert and every church I have been in, the minister has tried to make introverts into extroverts. Years ago, a new pastor said the following type thing from the pulpit: "If you can't greet a visitor in the foyer and strike up a converstaion with him using small talk, then you are not much of a Christian." Introverts are not good at small talk with strangers, do a poor job at it, and usually mess it up. Since about 1/2 the people are introverts, this turned off many people in the church from actively participating in the programs he was promoting. Are there programs of training for extrovert pastors on how to minister to/lead introverts? What are your thoughts?
