Rev. Tom Smith

Director of Curriculum


Rev. Kevin Polite

Board Member


Rev. W. Gene Petty

Honorary Director

Bro. Petty had taught at UBTC/FBI for about 25 years. I always thought of him as Mr. FBI – because they always said that this school is a sleeping giant and when the people catch a vision for this type of ministerial training – only God knows what a difference our graduates on going to make in the USA. He was a personal friend of mine and Rays. We met him in Maine when we lived there. He emailed me every single day for a year after Ray past, maybe even longer. He always encouraged me and prayed for me. He is an awesome man of God. He had to quit teaching about three years back. His night vision was not as good as it used to be, He drove in from Dover I believe. A distance at night.
β€œFor the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Hebrews 4:12
