About Future Perfect

Barry Cooper

My name is Barry Cooper. I’m an author and speaker who works as Director of Product Development at Christianity Explored Ministries.

There is another Barry Cooper on the web, an ex-narcotics officer who offers suggestions on how to “never get busted again”. Given that I’ve received mail asking me for advice on the best place to hide one’s stash, I can only imagine that the other Barry has received extremely complicated emails asking him to explain the Trinity. Probably not what you want to read when you’re mostly stoned.

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 am helping 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. But no more emails listing your favourite songs by Cheech and Chong.
