2020 Camp Speakers – Chris Cooper
Chris Cooper first came to faith in Jesus Christ in agricultural western Nebraska as the son of two teachers. As he grew, he began to serve in CFO as well as various other camping, church, and para-church ministries, serving in various leadership roles that have included youth leader, music minister, teacher/speaker, coach, and counselor. In the final year of his studies at Wheaton College, he felt a strong call to move outside his comfort zone and accepted an invitation to Peru, South America, where Christ stretched and grew his sense of imagination and adventure. After five years of international service, Chris has spent the last decade and a half as an educator, coach, counselor, and most recently, an entrepreneur. Chris believes we are called to continued growth, to be stretched and go farther out as we delve deeper into the mysteries of life and faith. He believes in the transformational power of deep Christian community. Chris’ passion is to confess the overwhelming love of Christ to all peoples and to build rhythms that unite, rebuild, and restore.
