Jeff Kemp is a quarterback for the family. He is an Ivy League graduate who played 11 seasons as a Quarterback in the National Football League with the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco Forty-Niners, Seattle Seahawks and the Philadelphia Eagles. Today he is more passionate than ever about strengthening marriages and families and bringing groups and teams together for exciting results.

Jeff is a Dartmouth-educated MBA from a widely-respected political family. His leadership, compassion and inspiration are a part of his legacy.
He and his father Jack Kemp (former Vice-Presidential candidate and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development) were the first of only six sets of father/son NFL quarterbacks. Jeff entered the league as a free agent and quarterbacked for the Rams, Forty-Niners, Seahawks, and Eagles before turning the 11 years of experience into service for others.
Persevering through the highs and lows of eleven years in the NFL gave Jeff valuable insights on servant leadership, committed teamwork, and overcoming adversity. Today, he passes on those lessons as he illuminates God’s blueprints for manhood, marriage, and family.

"Thank you for your Spirit-filled/led ministry in the CBN Chapel. The Lord used you in so many wonderful ways that day! We are still quoting you, recalling your servant-example, and reflecting on the “dignity/honor” message your wife spoke into your life. I am personally indebted to you for advancing the Spirit’s work in my own life. Our viewers and we in the chapel owe you a debt of love."
"Jeff Kemp was an amazing speaker for both our outreach breakfast and inaugural fund raising banquet. More importantly, Jeff is an authentic leader, effective communicator and has a passionate focus regarding fatherhood, marriage and leadership at all levels of our communities and nation. He was a personal encouragement to my board and me and will be considered a life-long friend to CITYCommit and an influencer in Southwest Florida."
"Jeff's talks were very well received by the guys in Manhattan. Tons of good feedback! The emphasis on open, transparent relationships syncs well with NCS culture. Look forward to connecting about how we could partner more in the future."
