Breakthrough Bible College & Theological Seminary was founded in 2000 with the first classes commencing in June 2002. by Dr. Anthony T. Mays, a renowned author and scholar who has served in many administrative and faculty positions at colleges and universities in Germany, Georgia, North Carolina, Washington DC, and Maryland, is the founder and president of BBC&TS. God revealed to Dr. Mays more than 20 years before it came about His desire to start BBC&TS to prepare people called to serve in various aspects of the ministry. Since the doors of BBC&TS were first opened, thousands of students across the nation and around the world have been served by this righteous endeavor. Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, Dr. Mays resides in the Washington DC metropolitan area.

Dr. Mays is a highly decorated retired military commander, having served more than 26 years in the Army. He served in combat theaters of operations spanning the Vietnam to Operation Desert Storm in Iraq.

Dr. Mays has earned a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and a Master of Business Administration. He went on to earn several doctorate degrees, including a Ph.D. in Education, a Doctor of Divinity, a Doctor of Ministry, and a Doctor of Humane Letters. Some of the books that he has authored include "Knowing Your Place in the Ministry," "Power in the Pulpit Using the ATM Method," "Rekindling the Fire in Your Relationship," "Leave, Cleave, and Become One," "Harvest the Financial Breakthrough with the Mays Method," and "How to Cope with Things You Can't Change".

Most importantly, Dr. Mays became a dedicated Christian at a very early age and even began preaching at the young age of seven. He has served Bishop of the Faith Deliverance Pentecostal Ministries for twelve years, a ministry that consisted of 78 churches. He has served for more than a decade as the Apostle over the Faith Deliverance Breakthrough Ministries Worldwide. This Ministry consists of 365 churches across the nation, as well as in India, Germany and other locations in Europe, Africa, Costa Rica, Panama, and El Salvador.

Dr. Mays founded BBC&TS on the precepts that Education is Power; Power is Success; and Success is Victory. The Bible is clear in 2 Timothy 2: 15 where the Lord instructs us to "Study to show thyself approved, a workman that needth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."

BBC&TS 's staff is exceptionally knowledgeable, professional and skillful in biblical studies providing diverse opportunities to meet the needs of Christian leaders. BBC&TS 's goal is to be one of God's leading Evangelical Bible Universities. In keeping with the BBC&TS historical roots BBC&TS is committed to the spirit of Excellence. As you will see throughout this site, God has truly blessed BBC&TS with progress toward achieving this goal, not with the intent of seeking the praise and adoration of mankind, but to prepare as many as possible to serve the Lord as we press forward to fulfill the Great Commission: "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age," (Matthew 28:19-20).
