There are 7 Mountains of Influence in Culture...
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.
This website is designed to help educate those who wish to become change agents in culture for Christian values and to connect like-minded men and women for a common vision.

Testimonies for Reclaiming the 7 Mountains of Culture:
"Great resource for we who want to change our worlds for Christ!"
"...Os Hilman is a relevant cutting-edge resource for the rest of us! I personally use and benefit from his daily e-mail devotional, TGIF (Today God Is First). I commend him to you because you are my valued Friends!"
"Make a difference in the part of the World that you operate in."
The 7 mountains initiative is not an initiative to establish dominion over all the earth or in governments. It is an initiative that seeks to love and serve all people on the earth. As followers of Christ, we believe we are called to love all people, regardless of faith, lifestyle or gender orientation. God loves all people. He provides guidelines for living as found in the Holy Scriptures and we support those guidelines as a people called to love and obey His calling upon our lives. Jesus invites all people into this destiny, but not all will come. We are called to model what Christ taught when He prayed that what was in heaven would be manifested on earth through a people known for their love of one another and others. That means His love and grace would be extended to all people.
"Your latest book, Change Agent, is a great, motivating, inspiring and practical guide to making a significant difference in every area of life as a Christian in the marketplace! You've done it you know! Reclaiming the 7 mountains speaks to that in very practical ways and is a great lighthouse tool of information for anyone needs encouragement, wisdom and resources to be truly effective as a change agent in their arena. A must read on my list and I know countless thousands will agree!!"

"All the information I received in this course was pivotal in confirming God's call on my life. A lot of times we think we are inconsequential and that we cannot do anything to change our culture. I know that is a lie from the enemy. The Change Agent Course confirmed that Little Ole me can go out and make a difference in the world. " -Sheila Hart, California
