Mentoring – 707 Small Groups

The 707 program is a network of small groups designed for students in 6th through 12th grade. A 707 group is made up of either all girls or all guys who are in the same grade. Groups meet once a week during the school year at 7:07am, and are facilitated by two adult leaders who provide Bible study lessons, mentorship, and activities to encourage friendship and support between members of the group.

Currently, there are about 120 leaders and 530 students involved in the 707 program in the Glynn County area. The groups meet in local restaurants, coffee shops, homes, schools and churches in the community. Ideally, each 707 group will meet weekly during the school year until the students graduate from high school. The dynamics of these groups are all very different, and can change over the years, but the consistent factors in all of the groups are: faith, mentorship, and community!

According to Barna research, students need seven positive adult Christian influences for their faith to stick. The 707 program gives students two out of the seven positive adult influences!

180s

180s are large gatherings of 707 groups held each semester. These fun, high energy gatherings give students in 707’s the ability to meet, engage with students in other groups and catch a glimpse of the “bigger picture” of the body of Christ on school campus!
