I'd like to ask what "introduce" implies in the following context:
I have admired Dr. Zhi Gang Sha's work for some years now. In fact, I clearly remember the first time I heard him describe his soul healing system, Soul Mind Body Medicine. I knew immediately that I wanted to support this gifted healer and his mission, so I introduced him to my spiritual community at Agape.
I have to admit that I'm not sure that I understand correctly what the phrase "I introduced him to my spiritual community" implies.
Does it imply as follows: Dr. Sha, this is my spiritual community or does it imply: This is Dr. Sha (said by this person to his spiritual community)? Or does it imply both?
For example, I can come up to a famous artist with my friend and say to him (artist): Mr. Smith, this is my friend... Or I can say to my friend: This is Mr. Smith. How can I express this difference by using the verb "introduce?"
I think you are misunderstanding 'introduce' here.

But 'introduce' is used more generally in some contexts.
He was interested in coin collecting, so I introduced him to my favourite hobby.
Blame Peter for Maria's death. He was the one who introduced her to hard drugs.
A famous yogi introduced me to the idea of reincarnation.
It means to make something known or familar to someone else.
Thank you very much, Raymott.
