Black Scholars and Professionals Matter

Join us April 6-7, 2018, at Toah Nipi Retreat Center in Rindge, NH, for the 7th annual Black Scholars and Professionals Conference as we explore the scripture: 

Jesus said, “The first in importance is, ‘Listen, Israel: The Lord your God is one; so love the Lord God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence and energy.’ And here is the second: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ There is no other commandment that ranks with these.”

Mark 12:29-31 (The Message)

To do this, we should strive to be at our best (whatever our situation or circumstance). We need to engage in “self-care” in mind, body, soul, and spirit. This conference will address effective practices (mental, physical, emotional and spiritual) to cope with trauma and to live godly resilient lives. The Black Scholars and Professionals Matter Conference will focus on the kind of self-care that promotes wellness and health in body, mind, soul, and spirit.  We are so pleased to announce Rev. Dr. Vanessa Wynder Quainoo will be our keynote speaker this year. Visit the Program page to learn more about this year's theme and our Keynote Speaker. Join us for this exciting exploration! Registration is open!
