Additionally, he received his Seminary, Graduate, and Post Graduate Theological training at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. He holds a certification in Clinical Pastoral Education.
Pastor Cooley was called to the ministry at the early age of 12 and began pasturing at the age of 19. He served churches in North Carolina, Ohio, and New Jersey. Pastor Cooley accepted the call to the pastorate of The First Baptist Church of Steelton in July of 1980 along with the challenge to pay off the debt and burn the mortgage in five years.
