About Our Speaker - Jeff Kemp 

Jeff Kemp is a champion for strengthening relationships and teamwork. His message and coaching bring honesty and hopeful vision to organizations, businesses and families seeking to turn life’s troubles into triumph and succeed through teamwork.

Jeff’s team-building  approach was influenced by his father, 49er coach Bill Walsh, business authority Pat Lencioni and relationship experts over his three decades lifting families.

After graduating from Dartmouth College, he entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent. He and his dad Jack Kemp, the late Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, were the first of only six sets of NFL father-son quarterbacks. In his 11 NFL seasons, Jeff quarterbacked for the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco Forty-Niners, Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles. In the off seasons, he earned his MBA from Pepperdine University, focused on speaking and campaigned for his dad’s presidential nomination.

Jeff’s football career was a rollercoaster, going from fourth string to first string, from the bench to the playoffs and from winning to getting traded. He’s beaten the blitz on Monday Night Football and been cut midseason as a starting QB. He helped his teams and teammates, both on and off the field. Those highs, lows and epic team experiences set the stage for a career of serving others, building teamwork and helping people from all walks of life overcome adversity.

After the NFL, Jeff worked to improve the lives of children by strengthening marriages and families. He founded and led Stronger Families for eighteen years and then served as a Vice President and Catalyst at FamilyLife, an international leader nurturing marriages and families. At Jeff Kemp Team, his mission is investing in relationships and teamwork- helping CEOs and businesses, men’s groups and marriages.

Jeff’s sweet spot is casting vision and uniting teams.  He has delivered presentations to more than 1,300 audiences, including IBM, Northwestern Mutual, American Petroleum Institute, Young Presidents Organization, and Interstate Battery. Jeff has keynoted at hundreds of non-profit groups like governor’s prayer breakfasts, Athletes in Action Super Bowl breakfast, men’s retreats and the Billy Graham Crusade.

Facing the Blitz- Three Strategies for Turning Trials into Triumphs,” was released in 2015. People remark that Jeff’s transparent stories and concepts are powerful, easy-to-remember and actionable. With self-deprecating humor and vulnerability Jeff helps people embrace change, serve others and turn problems into positives.

Early in his NFL career, Jeff married Stacy. They have four married sons and four grandchildren. They love to mentor young couples, play tennis, ski as a family and speak for the FamilyLife Weekend to Remember marriage getaways.

History of the Mayor's Prayer Events

In 1973, Homer Anderson (the man Homer’s Coffee House is named in honor of) proposed a plan to begin Mayor’s Prayer Breakfasts in cities throughout Kansas and Missouri. Homer visited with mayors throughout the region and asked them to let Kansas City CBMC sponsor Annual Mayor Prayer Breakfasts in their cities.


Over the next few years many such events were begun. Other CBMC areas followed our lead and began Mayor’s Prayer Breakfasts as well. Nationally, CBMC sponsors Mayor’s Prayer Breakfasts in St Louis, Houston, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Los Angeles, and many other cities.


The purpose, then as now, was to present the claims of Jesus Christ to the business and professional community in a non-threatening and open environment. The guidelines were that there would be no mention of political parties or denominations. We would discourage politicians and clergy from speaking and the main speakers would be business people or athletes who had had a significant encounter with Christ.
