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.

Christians have used  "Jesus' cleansing of the Temple" (Jn 2:12 - 16) to argue that "Church" & "Business" don't mix.1. Is the modern day "Church" a representation of the "Temple" ?    (  I see…Continue

I was wondering whether you know of people who have been called to more than one "mountain"? I am looking for leaders who have successfully served in more than one of the mountains of culture I feel called to the mountains of business AND "church ministry" and I am looking for examples of people who have been able to answer both callings.

Donna, joining groups like this build relationship, but relationship without mobilization is just socialization. Our intent for this site is to let people find one another who can uplift and possibly support or partner in join efforts to impact culture through our individual workplace callings.

I can share this much. God's vision for Hollywood is the same as His vision for the church and every other mountain -- that it be the expression of His character and nature. Under His design, all business should be conducted in a morally responsible manner, the "lion's share" of profits should be used to bless the world in Jesus' Name, and every film project should give equal importance to both its entertainment value and its spiritual impact on the culture.

Is it ok for you to share that vision? And congrats on funding for your film, I know that's hard to come by.

I joined this group, and others like it, because I believe the key to fulfilling the great commission in the marketplace is mobilization of like minded people who are willing to do, not just talk about doing, the necessary "boots on the ground" work to transform the world in Jesus' Name. Like you, I'm called to the A&E mountain. I believe I, and handful of others, have been entrusted with a vision that's bigger than us, but it's not bigger than God. He is already opening impossible doors for us, even providing investor funding (over 10m) for our first film project. We begin shooting this fall, but the film is only the beginning of what we wants to do in this industry... and it's going to take an army to get it done.

Hi ... I am a social media "newbie" and feel like a fish out of water! May I ask what made others join this group? I did because I have had a desire in my heart to attend a Reclaim the 7 Mts conference for years, but never felt I had permission - out of season I guess. If I am called to this, and I'm not 100% sure of that yet, then I would be affecting in some way Media and Arts/Entertainment. Would anyone feel comfortable sharing how they got the call, and have you been officially SENT yet, or are you still in the processing stage? (I'm still processing!) Oh bless the days of looking back! Blessings on your day, Donna

Ed, you said," I wonder what all this activity means in the Kingdom. A lot of people joined, but not much activity. I am seeing the same thing on other websites as well. You get here and then what?"

I believe people are still learning to use something new and still need to understand how to use. We will do more education over the months.
