Reclaiming the 7 Mountains of Culture – How We Lost the Culture
(Available as one session teaching on main topic or full 1 1/2 day Workshop)
In 1975 Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade and Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With a Mission, had lunch together. God simultaneously gave each of them a message to give to the other: “The culture is shaped by seven mind-molders or mountains in society. If we can influence each of these areas for Christ, we will win the culture of our nation.” Unfortunately, we have not been winning the culture since 1975, but losing precious ground. Os will be sharing how we have lost the culture by giving up these mountains and how the marketplace plays a key role in reclaiming the culture.

You will learn how to use the authority God has given us to move mountains by our commitment to live in both the inner court and the outer court.

Avoiding the Performance Trap – Accepting the Father’s Love
Do you really believe God loves you? Do you live as a son or daughter or a slave?

This life-changing session is often the most important session people will attend.

Lessons from The Cave of Adullum
David was forced to flee the sword of Saul. He stayed in the Cave of Adullam during this time. When God raises up His change agents it will sometime involve being placed in a cave of isolation. David was forced to flee the sword of King Saul. The anointing had left Saul and a control spirit was released upon him that made him operate from an extreme place of fear and control of others. This spirit was designed to kill his destiny. He sought to kill David. We will all enter the cave of Adullam at some time in our life. Discover what God does during this process.
