Resident Chaplain
Ben Cooper

Resident Chaplain

Like all residential communities at Baylor, the College has a Resident Chaplain who is a current Truett Theological Seminary student who lives in residence and provides leadership for the spiritual formation and development of members of Brooks College. He or she works to foster an environment where students can explore their strengths, calling, and spiritual questions in a supportive and caring environment. The Resident Chaplain promotes faith development through Bible studies, vocation-specific retreats, mission experiences, and building relationships with residents.

Ben was born and raised in his native Australia, where he studied and practiced as a lawyer, before relocating to London in 2009. Ben pursued his career as an attorney in England until he commenced his studies in the Master of Divinity (with an emphasis on sports chaplaincy) program at George W. Truett Theological Seminary, in the Fall of 2013. During his time in Europe he was able to travel extensively in both Europe, but also as far afield as India and China. As the residential chaplain at Brooks, Ben oversees services at Robbins Chapel and helps in the spiritual formation of our students and enjoys building lasting relationships with students as they navigate the highs and lows of their college experience, be it homesickness through to the loss of loved one.
