Jeff Riley- Educational Ministries Chair

Jeffrey Riley

  • Educational Ministries

Mr. Riley grew up in Colorado along the Rocky Mountains. Without Christianity in his childhood, the Gospel came alive when he was twelve years old. He is a graduate of Emmaus Bible College and has spent the past 20+ years in youth, camp, children and family based ministry. He holds a masters degree in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary and is currently working on a doctorate in Educational Ministries. As a faculty member at Emmaus, he loves challenging his students to live what they believe and spends a lot of time outside the classroom befriending and caring for them. He has a heart for discipleship and a passion for marriage and family focused ministry. He’s been married to his wife, Jeanette, for 20 years. They have six children (ages 17-3). Mr. Riley enjoys working on classic cars and can often been found among fellow car enthusiasts in Dubuque with his own classic.
