Although Kempf has not needed to serve in the military, he comes from a family that has a rich tradition of serving in the Armed Forces. His love and respect for the military has been deeply nurtured thereby. Both he and his wife have been active supporters of and contributors to the Arts in and about Norman.

Kempf has more than 30 years of experience studying, and teaching the Bible. He has sought no accreditation for that effort other than that suggested to Timothy: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
