Each U.S. annual conference of The United Methodist Church has a conference commission on religion and race or related structure. Its mandate is to provide resources, training, coaching, and programming to support congregations in fostering greater cross-cultural understanding and dealing with institutional racism.
Finally, plan to attend workshops or events sponsored by conference Commission on Religion and Race or racial-ethnic ministry teams in your annual conference to learn more, and don’t limit your involvement to events related to your own racial-ethnic group. Strive in your learning and partnerships to support equity, justice and cooperation among several groups. Your congregation will benefit from earning a reputation of being a symbol of God’s inclusiveness and welcome.
GCORR is building the capacity of The United Methodist Church to be contextually relevant and to reach more people, younger people, and more diverse people as we make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
