Asbury UMC: York City Race Matters


GCORR awarded CORR Action Fund grants in 2013 to six UMC projects that support or replicate culturally diverse, relevant and vital congregations; develop culturally competent leadership and ministries; or promote institutional equity.

Asbury UMC (York, PA), received funding to expand its York City Race Matters program, which will host a series of events for participants from faith- and community-based organizations, businesses, and other secular non-profit organizations, seeking to have meaningful, high-impact conversations around diversity.

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.
