Mentoring Mythbusters: “I’m Not Going to Make It”

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 4, 2019

One of the distinguishing characteristics of Radical Mentoring is its requirement that everyone attends every meeting and shows up on time. Like many things, this was born of one motive but then morphed with a wonderful but unintended consequence. In the beginning, I didn’t think it was fair for me, the mentor, to go to…

Change Culture or Create New Culture?

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 31, 2019

I’ve never really been into Halloween. And as horror movie images become more connected to real-life happenings, I find it harder to be lighthearted about macabre murder scenes and bloodied faces. And while I’m not a doomsday kind of guy, I have to confess that our current culture is getting to me a little bit….

Mentor Summit 2020: Spiritual Fatherhood

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 28, 2019

Over the years, several guys have circled back after their mentoring group and thanked me for being their spiritual father. Even though Radical Mentoring hasn’t used these words, spiritual fatherhood is often the result of our mentoring process. The idea is to come alongside another man in love, help him find and follow Jesus, and…

Known and Needed

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 24, 2019

Following Jesus was never intended to be an individual sport. Jesus always had His guys walking with Him. As He helped His disciples develop their faith, He sent them out . . . not alone, but together. Two-by-two. Jesus knew how hard it would be for us to follow Him. Living selflessly, humbly, generously, forgiving…

Getting Humble

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 21, 2019

When people strive to be somebody, they’re often trying to be somebody else. But look around at the people you admire most, and you’ll find humility. Humility may be the most revered character trait from God’s perspective. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven,” said Jesus. So how do…

Sometimes I say stuff and think, “Hmm, that sounded pretty good! I wonder if I made that up?” Usually, it was from Andy Stanley or another person smarter than me. But to make sure, I google it. If the author doesn’t pop up, maybe I did come up with it. So, here’s one . ….

Every husband would love to have magic words that light up his wife’s heart. There aren’t any. But I recently picked up a couple of phrases that have helped us avoid contention and communicate better. Here’s the kind of conversation that can set me off . . . Miriam: “Regi, if you would put the…

How to Recruit Your (Next) Group

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 7, 2019

One of the first questions we hear after a guy (or a church) has embraced the idea of mentoring younger men is, “Where will I get my mentees?” Even if you’ve led a group, there’s a little bit of angst. “Will anyone else want to do this?” Well, unless God calls you away from mentoring,…

Leading with Influence

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 30, 2019

Every day, I’m more aware of the influence people have on others. Leaders are people who have influence and use it for a purpose. Leaders are always leading . . . in one direction or the other. In truth, leadership is really more about the who than the what. We in the church have sometimes…
