History of 7 Mountains Message

In 1975, Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade, and Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With a Mission, had lunch together in Colorado. God simultaneously gave each of these change agents a message to give to the other. During that same time frame Francis Schaeffer was given a similar message. That message was that if we are to impact any nation for Jesus Christ, then we would have to affect the seven spheres, or mountains of society that are the pillars of any society. These seven mountains are business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family and religion. There are many subgroups under these main categories. About a month later the Lord showed Francis Schaeffer the same thing. In essence, God was telling these three change agents where the battlefield was. It was here where culture would be won or lost. Their assignment was to raise up change agents to scale the mountains and to help a new generation of change agents understand the larger story.

Can "Church" & the "Marketplace" mix?

Whilst we view everything through our own perspectives & worldviews the Family Mountain is the one where everyone has different experiences. There may be similarities between some but vast differences between others.

Romero's prayer certainly puts our individual efforts in perspective. While I do what only I can, God adds my life to others and certainly multiplies the results spiritually in ways I cannot imagine or foresee. It reminds me that my efforts are supposed to be incomplete, but a part of the bigger picture eternally. This is a pressure reliever.

Thanks for sharing.

Here is a poem/prayer from Catholic Archbishop Oscar Romero entitled "A Future Not Our Own" It was read at a recent Valedictory Service for Year 12 graduates here in Sydney.

It helps now and then, to step back and take the long view.
The kingdom is not only beyond our efforts, it is beyond our vision.

We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God's work.
Nothing we do is complete, which is another way of saying that the kingdom always lies beyond us.

No statement says all that could be said.
No prayer fully expresses our faith.
No confession brings perfection.
No pastoral visit brings wholeness.
No program accomplishes the church's mission.
No set of goals and objectives includes everything.

This is what we are about.
We plant seeds that one day may grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produces effects beyond our capabilities.

We cannot do everything and there is a sense of liberation in realising that.
This enables us to do something and to do it very well.
It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for God's grace to enter and do the rest.

We may never see the end results but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders, ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future not our own.

Hello Everyone! I am relatively new here on this site, and just read down through some of the comments. I would like to refer to John K. Baw's comment on July 16 re being assigned to more than one mountain. Certainly I believe so.

For example, I have a calling to the family mountain in particular to the marriage and sexual intimacy side. I have served in the ministry for nearly 30 years and relationships have been my focus, especially marital relationships. I am also a psychologist, again with the focus on relationships.

OK, relationships is my "theme" and it spans to the second mountain: "church ministry". As an ordained minister I have had the privilege to serve spiritual leaders in various ways and finally was compelled to do a Masters degree in Business Psychology to be able to give practical insights into organizational relationships, effective team building, etc.

The two mountains somehow merge with my assignment. Too many times I had to sadly witness how the domestic, intimate sphere of church leaders, the breakdown of their marriages impacted their churches and ministries (several churches folded as a result), and vice versa. With about 83% of pastors and church leaders secretly indulging in porn, and statistic showing that pastors are twice as likely to cheat in their marriages than non-christian men, plus the horrific side of domestic violence in church leaders homes, it is important to me to address both mountains.

Trust is a serious issue amongst church leaders, so with them knowing that not only am I a minister, an insider as it were, but also bound by the strict confidentiality laws as a psychologist, I am able to build the trust bridge.

Anyway, as an answer to John, this is my personal take of being on more than one mountain.

Thanks for your input.

I understand the word Culture comes from the root word Cult.

Is it possible that every mountain culture is controlled by a religious

Isn’t Marxism a religion whose god is matter and every living thing
comes from matter. That the fall is when humans began a free
enterprise system with redemption when governments controlls all

Os: Every mountain is controlled by a principality. I recommend you read Johnny Enlow's book, the 7 Mountain Prophecy. He covers this in detail in his book.
