Black scholars & professionals

Serving as agents of change within the African American and African community, church and the world


The vision of Black Scholars and Professionals is to see a generation of African Americans and people of African descent who are graduate students, faculty, and/or professionals being transformed by Christ, being renewed in their academic pursuits or professional lives, and becoming agents of transformation within the African American community, the church, and the world.

We have great support!

We are blessed to have Black professionals who support our vision

We’re teaching them to transform the lives of the people around them by following Jesus with passion and excellence. We’re challenging them to place their academic and professional training at the service of God’s Kingdom.

I was blessed to be able to meet other women facing similar struggles and challenges in life and work. Although new, the BSAP group already feels like family!

Every gathering always leaves me with hope and faith as I hear the common struggles that we face as Christians and hear the testimonies about God’s goodness and faithfulness.   BSAP gives me the strength to keep getting up!
