WELCOME TO SEVEN LEVERS

MY PRAYER

is that Seven Levers, and the resources on this website, serves as a catalyst for change in the church. God has given us a task of unbelievable scope and overwhelming proportion, larger than any of us and bigger that all of us. We are blessed with immeasurable resources and we’ve been assigned a mission field that begins in the neighborhoods that surround our churches and that extends to the end of the earth. May Seven Levers help us fulfill the mission of Christ in ever more faithful and fruitful ways.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
