Very true!  As St. Paul wrote (emphasize mine), "And he gave SOME as apostles, others as prophets, others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers,..." (Ephesians 4:11).  God has not called, or gifted, all of us to go out and be evangelists.  What He has done, though, is called all of us to share Christ with others to the best of our ability in accordance to our calling and gifts, whatever they may be.
