Steve Cooper

Friendship, Connection, and Authenticity are at the core of Steve’s journey and his
ministry to men.

Drawing on stories from his and other’s’ lives, Steve comes alongside men, listening
without judgment or shame and helping them discover they are “NOT ALONE” in life’s
storms as many others are walking in the same shoes. We call it the “ME TOO” factor.
And ultimately it is realizing the “Good News” of “God is with us”, whatever our STORM
may be.

As JOURNEY 2 FREEDOM’S founder and Executive Director, Steve speaks to men’s
groups about discovering the power of Friendship, the battle against isolation, and
Freedom through authenticity.

A former TCU football player, Steve’s passions are college football, cooking on the grill,
and hanging out with friends and family. He lives in Houston, Texas with Karen, his
bride of 38 years. They have two adult children married with one granddaughter each.
JOURNEY 2 FREEDOM (formerly Waking the Passion) has been engaging men at
some of life’s greatest crossroads since 2004.
