About Future Perfect

b791e38366f63aa3d600d9766eee137bMy name is Barry Cooper. I’m an author and speaker who works as Director of Product Development at Christianity Explored Ministries. Future Perfect, Present Tense is a collection of my articles and blog posts.

I was born and raised in Epsom, Surrey. While I was supposed to be studying English Language and Literature at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, what I actually did was lots of sketch-based comedy and stand-up (with my own shows and also The Oxford Revue). I then trained as an actor at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, and appeared on stage in various places, including Shakespeare’s Globe and the National Theatre. I also co-ran a theatre company for seven years.

In May 2010, I completed an MA in Christian Studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago. More recently, I spent five months interning with Mark Dever at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington DC.

I now live in London, and was part of the core team that helped to plant Trinity West church in Shepherd’s Bush.

I’d love to hear from you. Send me a message, friend me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter.
