Cooper impresses me with his natural ease in sharing faith through song, testimony and sheer presence. Genuine, authentic, keen on connecting with his listeners, he has a style I find refreshing. He can engage teens and has “meat” in his presentations. I have enjoyed working with him at conferences and found him to be very effective with those groups.

Our diocese has truly benefited from Cooper’s ministry. Both teens and adults alike have found a connection with his music, his stories, his interaction with them from the stage, and his ability to lead them in prayer. As the person planning the event I have greatly appreciated his desire to work with our vision for the event and to become more than simply our ‘guest speaker’. We look forward to having him back soon!

Cooper does a fantastic job of connecting to young people through song, personal testimony and scripture. Our young people thoroughly enjoyed him at our diocesan high school youth conference where he did keynote, workshops and made himself available to youth and adults. He is a wonderful witness to young people as his energy and gifts are obviously powered by prayer and the Holy Spirit. We enjoyed him so much that we are bringing him back!

I have brought Cooper and his many gifts and talents to settings including parish youth group meetings and retreats, Confirmation preparation programs, parent workshops, and our archdiocesan youth conference for keynotes and break-out sessions. For each of these, whether it was to give a witness talk, lead music, or both, Cooper has always been easy to work with, accommodating of our event and the audience’s needs, and a great example of Catholic Christian servant leadership.

Thank you so much for being with us at our Diocesan Youth Conference! God has blessed you with talent and you are so gracious and humble. Thanks for sharing your talent and love of Jesus with us. We want our kids to not only know ABOUT Jesus, but to KNOW Jesus. You helped us make that happen.
— Troy Casteel | Director of Family Ministries Diocese of Springfield /Cape Girardeau
I attended the Youth Rally, as a group leader, with a group of 22 6th, 7th, and 8th graders from the Iron Mountain and Kingsford area. Your zeal, love, and willingness to share your faith with these young people is amazing! Thank you for the ministry you do and keep up the awesome work! In this day and age, young people need a positive, faith-filled role model to look up to and want to be like. You showed them that it is okay to be excited about their faith! God bless you and your work. Again, thank you!
