Reading is an important aspect of the Radical Mentoring gameplan. Each month, the mentor chooses a book corresponding to that month’s topic. All the mentees read the book and write a one-page net out. Below are our book recommendations for each of our 24 topic modules. Feel free to use a different book if you have you prefer. In fact, let us know why you really like it. We are always looking to improve our resources and provide you, the mentor, with the best options.
Additionally, because we love and value reading so much, we joined Associate Programs at both Amazon.com and Christianbook.com. Ultimately, this means that if you use the button below when you shop on Amazon, Radical Mentoring gets a small cut. The same goes for Christianbook.com. It doesn’t add anything to your price, they just gives a little back to us for sending you to them! And you don’t have to just buy books. You can even bookmark the link associated with the big button below and we’ll get a percentage of anything you purchase. As a non-profit, every little bit helps and we thank you for all your support!

As President, Kevins Harris sets the vision and strategy for Radical Mentoring, serving as an evangelist to new audiences and an invaluable resource to churches who have incorporated small group mentoring into their disciple-making strategy.
As a part of Regi Campbell’s 2nd Radical Mentoring group in 2002, Kevin experienced a radical change as a husband, father, and Jesus-follower, leading him to craft the purpose statement that has guided him since . . . “I exist to glorify God by helping others unlock and apply their God-given talents and strengths.”
Kevin grew up in Durham, NC and attended Furman University before moving to Atlanta. Before joining Radical Mentoring, he led a sales team at Wells Real Estate Funds and served in sales positions at CNL and Atlas Energy. He and his wife Susan have two boys, Thomas and Bo. Kevin enjoys coaching his sons, cooking a good meal, reading a good book, and watching a good game.
Trey Brush exists to glorify God by coaching, serving, and encouraging others to live up to their leadership potential, in life, and as Jesus-followers.
As Radical Mentoring’s Manager of Church Relationships, Trey Brush is on the frontlines of interacting and working with the hundreds of churches exploring the small group mentoring or in the process of launching.
Originally from the Atlanta area, Trey was raised in the shadow of Stone Mountain. Before joining Radical Mentoring in 2017, Trey was the Events Manager for Connect Ministries and a part of the Leadercast team at Giant Impact. He is passionate about the local church, specifically about the impact churches can have on the local community when their men are fully engaged.
When not working or hanging out with his wife and family, you will probably find Trey out on the roads running. Trey, his wife, and their two boys currently live in Jefferson, GA.
As Radical Mentoring’s Media & Marketing Manager, Jackson Beetler develops or works with our team and creative partners to develop much of what you see from Radical Mentoring . . . website, emails, blogs, social media, mentoring content, you name it!
Jackson began working for Radical Mentoring in 2014 after graduating from the University of Georgia. Originally from Marietta, GA, he currently lives in Atlanta, GA. When not operating as Radical Mentoring’s digital wizard, you’ll probably find Jackson watching a movie, cooking a meal, or enjoying time with his family and friends, preferably over a cup of coffee (but don’t ask him to go to Starbucks!)
Regi Campbell was an entrepreneur, author, and mentor. He was involved in founding 15 companies and served as CEO four times. He wrote four books: About My Father’s Business, Mentor Like Jesus, What Radical Husbands Do, and Radical Wisdom.
But Regi’s passion and calling was mentoring younger men to become all-in Jesus-followers. Through his 19 mentoring groups, he personally invested in 155 men and indirectly, in their marriages and families. The success of his mentoring groups led Regi to found Radical Mentoring to equip and engage men and their churches in launching intentional men’s small group mentoring. Through the investments of those churches and mentors, over 11,000 men have been mentored.
Regi was married to Miriam for 50 years. Their two adult children are happily married (with five grandkids between them) and live only a couple of hours away. Regi went home to be his Heavenly Father on January 24, 2020.
