Kevin Jelley is in his first season as an assistant coach for the Rhema Eagles. He, and his wife, Dawn, graduated from Rhema in 2019. Kevin attended North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he played on the men’s basketball team.
Prior to Rhema, Kevin worked for over 20 years with “at-risk” youth in out-of-home placement programs in Minnesota. He and Dawn left their careers to follow God’s call to attend Rhema and have made Oklahoma their home. Kevin loves the game of basketball and has long-desired to coach the sport. He feels his experience “coaching” young men in the game of life allows him to bring a unique perspective to Rhema’s coaching staff.
Kevin and Dawn have three adult children. Their youngest son, Del, is a second-year student and a member of the Rhema Eagles basketball team.
