Campbell has written a book that calls us to a great and important challenge. Like his first book, About My Father's Business, Mentor Like Jesus is an immensely practical book born out of Campbell's personal experience and his very real joy in mentoring.
Right now there are hundreds of people in mentoring groups, learning from those who are ahead of them in life and in faith. Mentoring taps into a deep need within both the mentor and the mentee. I see men, women and high school kids all being challenged and challenging each other. Lives are changing and a movement is being born.
This book is addressed to those who are considering being a mentor and seems designed to reduce our fears, to give us a track to run on and to set a joy before us that will sustain the effort that is needed.
Campbell understands that we learn as much from the failures of our mentors as we do from their proud successes. Campbell grasps the importance of the group to spiritual formation.
For too long Christians have seen more knowledge as the solution. The bible says that wisdom is the key and we acquire wisdom from those who have learned themselves through life's experiences and the faithful, internal witness of the Holy Spirit. We acquire wisdom from those will engage with us, life on life and challenge our thinking and our behavior.
Simple, straightforward and easy to read, Campbell has written an important book to inspire a generation of men and women to invest wisely in the lives of those who follow after them.

Finished Mentor Like Jesus few weeks ago, haven't blogged because lots been going on what with moving, getting settled etc. However, this book deserves to be read, recommended, advertised, whatever! It is a great book and offers such an innovative idea on mentoring.

Mentoring has been something I've felt passionately about for sometime as I've seen young people struggle with life, God, church, etc and had no one to turn to, no one to come along side them and say, "here, let me help you."

The Bible tells us to teach the younger, that the older are to be an example, but often what we have seen is criticism, disapproval and even condemnation if they do it different than what is expected.

Just think how much of a difference we could actually make if we took the time to love, support and help a younger person, to lift them up in prayer to share a thought or even a book with them. I know we all value our time but what better investment than in a young life, to see them grow in God, save their marriage, parent their children, and even go on to mentor others.

"Young people need to be connected with authentic, committed Christians who live their faith...not just talk it." pg 87

Regi Campbell offers a new concept to mentoring and he's proven it works by mentoring 8 young men a year, every year since 2000. He takes the idea from Jesus and the disciples and that a group setting offers some accountability as well as them being able to see that their problem is not always unique to them.

"I believe the group context is the 'secret sauce' of mentoring on an intentional basis. It can set the individual relationships in motion and even speed up the process of developing trust." pg 41

Anyone who is serious about mentoring really should read this book even if you don't decide to do it in a group setting like Regi you can glean much from it.

Regi Campbell's 'Mentor Like Jesus' was one of the most anticipated books on my reading list. It moved into first position this week after I read Michael Hyatt's endorsement and signed up with Next Generation Mentoring to mentor a group of men in 2010. I was not disappointed. Regi clearly describes his journey of mentoring and how he has used the model of Jesus to shape his own mentoring ministry. Two important keys to that model include intentionality and commitment. Campbell is big on process - potential mentorees are invited to apply and if chosen are required to commit to attending ten monthly sessions, complete assignments, and show up on time. That's a far cry from the way we do most things in the church - publishing blanket announcements,praying someone will respond, and taking whomever shows up. Campbell argues that Jesus did it differently when he handpicked his disciples.

I especially appreciate Campbell's inclusion of scripture memorization. Too often we can focus on dispensing wisdom from our own point of view and just respond to situations as they arise. By using these foundational verses we communicate the importance of God's Word in developing character and leadership.

Mentoring is a great role for second chair leaders. We have more flexible schedules and have more contact with next generation leaders than do most sr pastors. We are often freer to move among various groups of people without being held to a narrowly defined ministry group like youth pastors, worship leaders, children's pastors, etc. That broad list of contacts places second chair leaders in an ideal position to mentor others. It has been a highlight of my ministry over the years.
