7 Mountain Culture Shapers Master Class
Learn how you can shape culture in the mountains of influence where God has placed you.
In 1975 Bill Bright and Loren Cunningham met for the very first time. It just so happened that God spoke to each of these leaders that very week about the importance of the 7 cultural spheres, or mind molders, as Bill Bright called them, if we are to affect the culture for Jesus Christ. These 7 areas were business, government, media, entertainment, family, education and religion. Unfortunately, their efforts did not really effect much change because their attempt to effect these areas was done through the religion mountain instead of the business mountain that effects all of the other 6 areas. In this course you will gain practical tools for how you can have a direct impact on the 7 mountains of cultural influence, starting today!
In this 9-session course taught by Os Hillman you will learn:
- Why culture is defined by 7 cultural mountains.
- Why culture is shaped by as little as 3-5% of leadership at the top of a cultural mountain.
- A case study of how one group literally changed society’s view of their agenda with less than 3% of the population.
- The sociological proof that these cultural mountains determine values and beliefs in culture.
- Why unity within the 7 cultural mountains is key to impact on society.
- How the 7 mountain message came about and why we have not been successful.
- Why the 7 mountain message is not a theology or dominionism.
- The reason the Gospel of Salvation has failed to impact culture.
- Why culture change is a fruit, not a goal.
- Why Jesus never transformed an entire community and what we need to learn from that.
- What we can learn about how Jesus impacted his culture.
- The difference between using your spiritual authority versus seeking earthly power.
- Discover the one institution that convenes all 7 cultural mountain leaders each week.
- The one thing Jesus did that you can do that will allow you to make a greater impact on your sphere of influence.
- And a whole lot more!
