Mentoring Mythbusters: Measuring Success

Posted by Kevin Harris on December 3, 2018

Everything about us wants something to measure. Like Pavlov’s dogs, we’re drawn back to the age-old adage “you can’t manage what you don’t measure.” So, I am faithfully measuring what I eat, what I spend, how much time I’m on social media . . . and on and on . . . and on and…

One of His Favorites

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 26, 2018

Mentoring a group of guys for a year is like a roller-coaster ride. Somehow you know it’s going to be good in the end, but you’re just never prepared for all the ups and downs, the shock of the sharp curves and the unexpected drops that literally make you sick for a minute. (At least…

Mentoring Mythbusters: Not Enough Bible

Posted by Kevin Harris on November 5, 2018

When we give presentations or speak at conferences, we like to leave time for Q&A. There are a few questions we usually get asked, including . . . “Where is the Bible in Radical Mentoring?” I understand and appreciate this question because we are asking men and churches to take part in something that doesn’t…

Mentor Mythbusters: Guys Can’t/Won’t/Don’t Read (Part 2)

Posted by Kevin Harris on October 1, 2018

Last month, we began with the assumption that men aren’t readers . . . but went on to discuss a few observations about how Radical Mentoring groups can change that. Along the same lines, mentors often ask if the format of the book matters. Can my men listen to their books via Audible? Are e-readers…

Standing on the Rock

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 10, 2018

“The O.C.” is home to some of the best surfing in the continental United States. Decades ago, the Beach Boys and Hollywood helped make these California beaches popular, and the sport of surfing take off. Standing on the cliffs overlooking Laguna Beach, Sunset Beach, and Newport Beach, you can see why. It’s captivating. While visiting…

Are You Teaching One?

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 30, 2018

One time my daughter did a photography workshop with some famous guy. He hired models, set up his shots, and took pictures. Then he had his mentees photograph the same subjects, critiquing what they did. They did it again. And then again. A couple of days later, she sees me taking a picture of my…

The Difference Between Fathers and Mentors

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 2, 2018

Fathers can be mentors, but mentors aren’t necessarily fathers. Mentors choose to mentor, but once a man becomes a father, he is always the father. I believe that’s why God chose the father-son paradigm to explain the relationship He wants with us. God as the permanent, perfect, never going away, never giving up, always giving and forgiving Father. And…

Six Qualities of a Good Mentor

Posted by Kevin Harris on June 11, 2018

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . Occasionally, I will get a mildly panicked phone call from a concerned church leader. Some of their groups aren’t working out as expected. After asking a few questions, I almost always uncover two primary symptoms, and both lead me to a similar…

Leader Development or Disciple-making?

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 4, 2018

Sometimes we talk about Radical Mentoring as a disciple-making process and other times we call it a leader development program. So which is it? Is it a distinction without a difference? What is the difference? It’s all about your motive and who you pick as mentees. The Message paraphrase of Matthew 28:19-20 includes these words:…
