About the Instructor
Jarrod Cooper is an author, songwriter, broadcaster & communicator, and is privileged to lead Revive Church in Hull & East Yorkshire.
Inspirational in style, he uses speech, song, worship and prophetic ministry, in an inspiring, challenging and humorous way to encourage the Church to reach higher in God. This work has taken him throughout the UK, Europe, Africa and the Americas since 1990, speaking at churches, conferences, on television and radio and through writing and producing training and coaching materials.
His main passion is that “the glory of the Lord would cover the earth, as the waters cover the sea”, and seeks to lift believers to a life in the supernatural, that will display God’s presence and power in every day life.
Jarrod has been involved in producing over twenty albums, including eleven solo albums, and the song he is probably most known for writing, King of kings, Majesty has featured consistently for over a decade, as one of the top 10 worship songs sung in the United Kingdom (CCLI). His weekly radio & TV teaching programs REVIVE and Days of Wonder broadcast in many nations weekly and he has authored several books, including “500: Are we entering a new era of glory?” – “Stronger” – “When Spirit & Word Collide” and “Glory in the Church’.
He has led Revive Church since 2005, and in that time it has grown from 1 location to 9, with a vision to bring life to 20 locations by 2020. Revive Church is presence filled, prophetic, pioneering and passionate and is fast becoming an apostolic resource centre for leaders, for training, for missions, for church planting and inspiring revival. Revive Church is the home of Colombia ChildCare UK, a ministry birthed by the remarkable David Taylor, which educates, feeds, bring medical care and the Gospel to over 1500 children every week.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Jesus – in the book of John, chapter 16:33
Some studies have shown that over 75% of visits to doctors are stress related in some way, as an epidemic of anxiety floods our western way of living. Many people, even committed Christians, are struggling to find healthy ways to live and walk with peace and purpose.
But throughout the Bible we find references to peace. Even “peace that surpasses understanding.” It would seem that the ancient Jewish and Christian texts are filled with hints about how to live well, live peacefully, live healthy.
And so this course is designed both for the Christian who wants to live biblically, and for the enquirer who wants to consider the ancient Biblical truths of finding peace. It is packed with little ideas to help de-stress your life and healthy ways of thinking.
In the course you will find a daily 1-2 minute introductory video, followed by around 5-8 minutes of audio content from a “live” teaching environment, plus a stress busting journal to think through, pray and fill in – all aimed at helping you live more stress free. You will also find bonus talks, wallpapers, confessions and music to encourage you on your journey.
The aim is to help eliminate attitudes and actions in our lives that increase stress and anxiety, and may even lead to depression.
PLEASE NOTE – a short course like this is no replacement for good face to face pastoral counselling or visiting your GP/doctor if you think you may be clinically depressed. This course has not been developed from a medical viewpoint, but rather from almost 30 years of pastoral care and the author's personal experiences of stress, anxiety and depression.
