One day Loren Cunnigham (YWAM) was is Colorado with his family on vacation.  He got word from Bill Bright (Campus Crusade) that he was also in Colorado.  So they made an appointment to have lunch the next day.

That night Loren got a word from God to share with Bill when they were eating.  God told him that there were 7 Spheres of influence, of 7 mind molders, in society.  If you want to influence a nation.  You have to take these 7 mind molders because whoever influences these 7 will influence the culture and whoever takes the culture will take the harvest!

Needless to say Loren was pretty excited to share this work with Bill the next day.

When they sat down to eat lunch, Loren said to Bill “I have a word for you” and to his surprise Bill said “I have a word for you too!”  They both pulled out the paper, or napkin, or whatever it was they wrote the word on.  And guess what?!  They both had the same thing written down!

God told them the same 7 things that influence culture which influence the nations. And since Jesus told us to “Make Disciples of All Nations”  this is the strategy for today to accomplish this command.

The 7 Mind Molders are:

  • Religion
  • Government & Law
  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Education
  • Business
  • Media
  • Family

These 7 Culture molders influence the thoughts & values of any culture anywhere on earth!

For us to truly finish the great commission we need to find which sphere God is calling us to influence, invade that sphere & demonstrate God’s excellence, to release his commands in that sphere and therefore to represent God’s Kingdom there!

When Jesus gave the great commission in Matthew 28 to “make disciples of all nations” he was specifically speaking to group of youth.

I say there was 11 in the video because Judas had killed himself and that left the other 11 disciples.

It’s my opinion that we need to call youth back to the Great Commission.

Forget just trying to get them to not do drugs and not have sex.  Lets get them to be a part of something bigger than themselves so they can get on with doing what Jesus would want them to do.

There are 7 culture molders, or spheres of influence, in any society.  The culture of a society will influence the actions of that society.  But what influences culture?  Whatever controls the mass mind of culture, controls the nation.  And those 7 “mind molders” are:

  • Religion
  • Government & Law
  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Education
  • Business
  • Media
  • Family

These 7 mind molders effect the thoughts of any culture.  And like I said thoughts lead to actions.

So…it’s time we start empowering, equipping & training young people to find the sphere of influence God is calling them to and give them the tools necessary to bring God’s kindgom into that “Culture Molder”
