Through all his creative transformations, Kemper has been devoted to Christ and His church. He has studied, served and become a well-respected priest known for his exceptional teaching. His ardor for Christ leads his learning audience to pursue an uncompromising Gospel. He is a sought after teacher in and out of his ordained CEEC community. Deeply committed as an educator in the Classical Charter School community he is helping reform how students view their world. A bold Texan, he has a heritage of evangelism through his father, who has been engaged in foreign missions for over forty years, with two Nobel prize nominations. His passion for Jesus and His church has led Kemper to write the book Liberation Front.

Today’s guest is a multi-talented musician who has been active in a number of bands. There is ArkAngel, Radio Halo, and Atomic Opera. He also worked with Caedmon’s Call for a season in addition to having several albums of his own. I’m not sure how to classify Kemper’s music. Is it Old English, Celtic, Medieval, or Art/Progressive Rock? Probably a little of all each of those styles. But Kemper is much more than just a musician. He is an author, teacher, and an Episcopal priest, currently working at a Lutheran church.
